So, back in May I challenged myself to clear out a big old pile of my fabric stash by the end of the year, and with not long left… How am I doing?

Not bad…

I got rid of some of the fabric as I was out of love with it (just look at those little broken hearts…), but the remainder I do have firm plans for. Some of it unseasonal though, so the stash may not be busted before year-end.

Do I care? Nope. Not when this is happening to new-ish fabric…

Over-excited top-stiching on the binding, but those pleats?! Oooh…

It’s only a bloomin’ twirly-waisted New Look 6000 in a stretch cotton… Ooooh! Just needs hemming now. Not long, my pretty… Not long!
