My new and upgraded fabric stash (now without cat)!

Just in time for my last day of desperate writing before handing in my thesis before examinations... I got a delivery!

About a week ago I won an auction (this is starting to be more and more like a hobby - I really need to get the actual sewing going soon...) on Tradera, there was this man that seemingly had found an old stash of unused fabric remnants. There was a pic, but that did not say all that much. The info said that it was fabric from the 50's, 60's and 70's, and in various sizes. I took a shot, got the whole thing for about 100 SEK, including postal fees! And am I glad I did!

Look at this stash!

There were so many gorgeous fabrics! The red-ish paisley one on far right is real silk (It says so on the label from the fabric store, it still has it on, a lot of them do!) And most of them are big enough to make whatever I feel like making of them. Only a few of the fabrics are so small that they might just become a tiny top or such. (And the silky ones can always become cute vintage underwear, if nothing else) :D Just what I needed after spree shopping new patterns!

Tonight I will finish up my thesis, and tomorrow me and my darling are going to Edinburgh for the weekend, but after that... There will be some sewing, I tell you! :D

My fabric stash...

...Is being occupied by a small, furry little friend... Oh well, at least the fabrics are making someone happy while I'm finishing my thesis. No sewing for me until I'm done (cause if I start, there is no stopping, so I better just stick to writing instead).

...I am so not looking forward to removing all that cat hair from them though...

Vintage Vogue patterns, again!

Am I lucky or what? I just won these four amazing vintage vogue patterns on Tradera! (Swedish ebay)

I just can't wait to get my hands on them! Or, well, I will have to, since I have a couple of weeks left of hard work on my thesis... But I can look, and make plans! :D And the best thing - I will pay 62 SEK (plus postal fees) for them all, that is less than 10 USD! Wohoooooo!
