return of the circles


ask anyone who has one, and they'll tell you that there's something exciting about having a fabric stash.  one reason why it's called a "stash" is because when you add the fabric to it, you do so with the intention of keeping it for a very long time.  and when a piece manages to escape from time to time,  it's always for a really good reason.  


the other great thing about a stash is that it gives permission to buy two of everything.  this way,  you'll still have one, just in case the other one escapes.  which brings me to my "circles on yellow" fabric.  it seems that i gave myself permission to buy two of this fabric, well, on more than one occasion.  i have lots of it. it looked great on this journal, and now i've used it for this coptic structure...and, it's likely that you may see it again!

I like the patterns in this fabric and the color is nice too. I really should look in my old box from my mother-in-law to see what fabric pieces I still have in there. I am so anxious for my journal to arrive in the mail. hee Hee

And now that you've used a piece from your fabric stash you have permission to buy 2 more! I love the colour and pattern of the fabric--lovely journal!

Oh, boy - the fabric stash. I used to buy fabric based on my physical reaction to it in the store. If something just JUMPED out at me, I'd buy a quarter yard, but if I had palpitations, or broke into a sweat, we might be talking serious yardage!

It took a long time to break me of my "fabric habit". Now... it's beads.

Hi, I came by way of Sylvia through flickr...liked the heart in hand, and your journal is beautiful. I'm a painter of fabric so I have a very large stash which seems to be growing without much escaping. I can spend a whole day shifting through, laying it out, imagining how to cut it to make it into a wearable pieces and then fold it all back up again....am i awaiting the right inspiration? maggie/colormuse
