Blabbery

**Update, 3/7/2010: I noticed yesterday that they removed the plum gnomes from the lineup. I guess they’re working on the dye!

I’m still plugging away at stashbusters. I did a lot of sewing this weekend, but unfortunately, camera straps don’t use much fabric. I would say I used 2 1/4 yards of fabric this weekend, though! Not bad.

My friend Alison wants to go in on some Heather Ross fabric from Spoonflower. We’ll purchase 3 or 4 different prints, and divvy up the yardage, so we all get some of each print. I’m all for it! But I’m being a good girl and waiting for April 1st.

One bad thing about those $20/yard prints is that apparently they really fade. Banquopak on Flickr has been doing some wash tests, and the fading is pretty bad on the dark plum. I’m not sure I care all that much. The only thing that concerns me is that I don’t prewash, and I use a lot of white. So if they’re fading that much, that dye is going somewhere, right? Will a color catcher catch that much color? (that is your tongue twister for the day :))

I still want all the mushrooms and the gnomes, anyway.

    Hey Abi, I just wanted to let you know that I think Heather Ross stuff on Spoonflower is only going to be available for 30 days at a time, and then a new set of prints will come out. So if you want gnomes/mushrooms, you may have to order before 4/1.

  2. Yep, you’re risking ending up with a lot of pink socks. The fabric is pretty, though.

  3. Oh no, Katie! I better talk to Alison ASAP!
