Hi.  I suppose I should put a bit about myself in here.  I’m Julie and I live in the south of England with my husband and two cats.  I have no kids and no job, so have plenty of time to sew, but I got a bit overwhelmed by my stash recently and completely stalled.

I’m a bit of a homebody, so the only people I have to share my completed projects with are my husband, my mum and my best friend – so I’m hoping that this blog will enable me to share with other people.

At the time of starting this blog my stash consisted of around 255 metres of fabric (based on the rough count I keep in a notebook whenever I buy new fabric).  That quantity excludes linings and fabrics kept for muslin use only!

I read a lot of sewing blogs, but this is my first attempt at writing one.  Thanks for looking.

    Hi Julie,
    I love your blog.. I too have a big stash of fabric.. and I love it.. I love the idea of
    keep up with the amount, that way, you can tell your using it.ha During the year 2011 , I
    did try to use my stash, as much as possible. I still bought fabric [because I love it, and buying fabric and patterns is my fun in life.ha]. I am going to try in 2012…to REALLY ,buy less fabric and use what I have..
    I really enjoy your blog, and look forward to reading/seeing more of your projects. Judy

  4. I am so envious of the size of that stash and that you have so much time to sew.

    Hey Julie,
    Thanks for checking out my blog today! Sewing for others is a full time job and I hope I can inspire others to find ways around difficult problems and difficult clients. I left a stash the size of yours in Liverpool when I left there 11 years ago to settle in the Northwest of US. It makes me smile to think of the nuns in the convent sewing clothes for children in Africa using great wools and silks and attaching the button stash too! But after bringing it to the UK from Los Angeles, sitting on it for 8 years it sure didn’t make much sense to cart it all back across the ocean.
    Love your pattern co-ordination with fabrics …it makes me want to dig around and sew for myself!
