I promised someone that I would do an updated post of my hand dyed fabric stash. So Diya, this is especially for you 🙂
Here are all of my beauties from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie. She is my favorite dyer and I love collecting her FOTM every month. Several of her fabrics are on scroll frames being stitched on. They are all so beautiful.
This is a smaller pile of prettiest. There are fabrics here from Polstitches, Picture This Plus, Sunny Dyes Fabrics and Under The Sea Fabrics. All are also very pretty.
Seeing the fabrics standing was a much better way of organizing them, rather than having them stacked, which is how I had them before I pulled them out to do this post. So I have put them back into my trunk so that I can see them all at a glance. How pretty! And now it will be much easier to see what I have when looking for a fabric for a design 🙂
This is my biggest stash bin. These are all from Silkweaver fabrics. Some are smaller pieces, but it is nice to have a piece in Aida so I can see how it takes the dye. Most dyers don’t show their dyed fabrics on Aida, which is what I like to use.
So there you have it. I guess you could say that I have a bit of a fabric hoarding problem 😉 Oh well. I could do worse things. Fabric and color make me happy. What is in your favorite stash?
I think the title speaks for the photos.
This is an under the bed storage box that I have all of my hand dyed fabrics in. I remember when I didn’t have any hand dyes, and now I am obsessed with buying them. And I have plans for every one 😉 Well, most of them. Some may be just too pretty to stitch on right now. But I have them on hand when I need. I am not a patient person, so waiting for hand dyed fabric to come in the mail is very hard for me. So now I have a pretty good stash.
Just some of my Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
Some from Silkweaver. Just can’t seem to stay away from their auctions 🙂
A few from Picture This Plus from last years sale.
These are my 2 latest fabrics from Stephanie. On the left is her limited edition Liberty and on the right is Calypso. Both are 16ct Aida and both are gorgeous!! Not sure what I am going to put on Liberty, but Calypso is perfect for a mermaid 😉
And here is what I am currently working on. When I can stay awake that is. I have been getting up at 5:00 am 4-5 days a week to walk with a friend and it has been really kicking my butt. Can’t seem to stay awake at night to stitch. Hence the very little progress.
This is going to be Joan Elliott’s Eastern Promise on Julie’s Asian RR. Sorry for the bad photo, but the colors are truly bright and beautiful and Julie’s fabric is a blue sky with a touch of tan here and there. It’s gorgeous!
That is my update for now. Thank you for visiting and have a safe and wonderful Labor Day weekend.
I have been on a bit of fabric spending spree lately. This is what I received in the mail last weekend:
Aren’t they just beautiful? They are all from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie. On the left is Nantucket Sky-I plan on stitching Lavender Lace’s Spring Angel on it. Top right is Enchanted Glen and on the bottom right is Shimmering Pool. They are all 16ct Aida and all are beautiful. My camera really captured the true colors of these fabrics. Not sure what I will stitch on Enchanted Glen. Shimmering Pool is perfect for a mermaid. I have also purchased quite a few fabrics from Silkweaver lately. I don’t have pictures of those, but will have to pull them out and take a picture of the many I have purchased. I think that I have enough fabrics now for whatever design I want. Now I just want to stitch a little on each of the fabrics 🙂 Thanks for visiting today.
