Fabric Addition or is it Addiction?
Funny how sometimes you say one thing and then turn around and do the complete opposite. Take fabric for instance...my stash is becoming unwieldy. I knew it was bad when I was cleaning up my sewing room the other day and couldn't find good places to put my fabric. I have fabric in the unfinished part of the basement I can't bring in my sewing room because there is no place for it! So....I told myself, no more buying fabric. Well...last night a quilt store was having a special sale. I went because I needed to buy some thread and this is the only store I know that carries it. You know what happened...I ended up coming home with the thread and 3 1/2 yards of fabric! I rationalized buying it because I will use it on a project I have other fabrics for. Nevermind I have no idea when I will get to the planned quilt. So....here comes today. I was out having a lovely lunch with some friends and guess what...it's not far from another quilt store that's a little out of my way to get to. I've only been there once before and that was over a year ago! When I was there last year I had purchased a fabric and fell in love with it and wanted to use it as a border for a future quilt. Trouble was I only had purchased 1 yard. I wondered...would the store still have it? Well....it was my lucky day! It was still there so 3 yards of it came home with me. So...I decided, I'm not going to tell myself to stop buying fabric...at least not out loud anyways!
