I’ve some real beauties for you this week. A few weeks ago, after a rummage and reordering of the stash, I began to lament on how little of the Architextures collection by Carolyn Friedlander I had left. The crosshatch prints, also featured in her follow-up collection Botanics, are such useful additions. They’re great for binding and make awesome backgrounds and negative space. A little black and some of the text print made up the sum total of my remaining pieces. This needed rectifying.
So, as I’ve been known to do in the past, a friend and I went all out and hunted some down, and not just stopping at the crosshatch prints either. I wanted it all, the full house, something I sorely missed out on last time. I knew the collection was going to be reprinted but had heard rumours that some designs would be left out. Imagine then my delight as I saw more and more prints popping up for sale!
Now, in the space of a week, the only print I’m missing is the black blue print. Instagram has been wonderful in allowing me to replenish my stock of this most beloved fabric, owing to all the great and sometimes rare things that pop up on the destash hashtag. These are the first delivery, which I tore into a few days ago. A rainbow of crosshatch and those to-die-for text prints. The rest, which includes the more of the ledger and topography colourways, is due any day now and will be the stars of a feature Sunday Stash.
I’m linking up with Handmade by Mary Emmens for today’s Sunday Stash. Go look at all the goodies and enter her great giveaway. I shall imminently, after I’ve petted the Architextures one more time.
