My most recent order courtesy of some lovely Christmas money I received kindly from my Gran ( a great supporter of my handmade ethos and etsy!- she used to make jewellery so totally gets me!).
I deliberately chose a range of colours as I want to try and grow my stash a little.
I am going to be honest and say I get real stash envy when I see awesome stashes and dream of one day immersing myself in a huge stash of fabric!
Finances obviously always come into play. I stay at home and only make a very little from my etsy ventures so I have to be extremely frugal about what I buy. This means I take FOREVER to choose fabric when I do have some spare money :) .
It is also more expensive to buy here in the UK than say the US. But I do like to support UK sellers and think that if we all bought overseas all the time ( not that anything is wrong with that as it is heaps cheaper), then would we be able to get such a great range and such up to date fabrics from UK sellers?
So to me the above photos were a splurge for me and they will sit in my mini stash for a while until I decide what to make next!
