Because crafts are like crack.

Now Stash Away! Stash Away! Stash Away All! December 28, 2010

With the presents unwrapped and the cookies all eaten it is time to relax and enjoy my vacation time until the New Year. A day off work means a trip to the local fabric store and a chance to replenish a stash slightly depleted by the Christmas festivities.


These gorgeous reds and greens happened to be on post-Christmas sale! It is time to start on the 2011 Christmas crafting. I decided to replace our acrylic felt tree skirt from Target will a real heirloom-quality homemade skirt. Or as I told the brother-in-law, “It’s time to crank Christmas up to an 8!” With a little luck and a lot of time, those quarter yards should soon look similar to this!

To go to a fabric store without peeking at the baby fabrics would be ridiculous considering the number of newborns and pregnancies in our lives right now.

I love this vintage circus print. It reminds me of the logo of the gift shop at the Children’s Hospital where I volunteered with my grandmother as a child.

These animal prints are going to make some adorable matching toys for newborn twin boys!

But the best part of the day may be a conversation overheard at the cutting counter:

“So what are you going to be making with all of this new fabric?”

“Probably nothing but a bigger stash.”

Too true.
