Adding to the stash again

It seems that I was bitten by the voile bug yet again, as these pretties arrived on my doorstep from Pink Castle Fabrics yesterday – the top four voiles. I purchased two yards of each so that I could make Wiksten‘s Tova Tunic if I so desired, or another similar tunic. At only $6/yard, that works out to $12 a shirt – not counting thread and other essentials or sewing time – which I think is quite good compared to what you could buy in a store for that price. It means though, that my stash of voile has been rounded our quite nicely and I should really get to actually printing that pattern out, taping it together, and starting the tops already!

Of course, while at it, I couldn’t resist adding another two half-yards of cute fabric to my stash, and thus I picked up these two graphic prints as well.

Late last week, my laminated Anna Maria Horner Saffron fabric came in, along with these half-yard cuts from her Field Study line of fabric. I had received a fat quarter set of Field Study in Patina from my sister for my birthday this fall and had also picked up a couple of random half-yard cuts of the line from since then. This addition means that I now have enough to make a gorgeous quilt out of that line of fabrics. Now to decide just what pattern would best showcase these prints …

In the mean time, my dining room chairs are calling out for a makeover, having had their microfiber upholstery pretty trashed by four-year-old fingers the past couple of months. The laminated cotton will be going on the chairs just as soon as I find the staple gun and unscrew the bottoms of the chairs. This could be a while, as I haven’t seen the staple gun since moving back in January. All I know is that I’m so tired of seeing the stained brown fabric on there now, so hopefully that staple gun turns up sooner rather than later!
