I think I have a problem

3/12/2008

I cannot STOP buying fabric. I dont know what it is. I havent been able to sew recently so to fill that void I guess I have been buying fabric like crazy. These featured have been bought within the last week and there is more I just ran out of table space! Eek, yep I think I have a problem but lets fawn over them anyway!


This first set I bought here. I must have been in a dark mood since they all are all darker tones in person though they are just lovely. Dark and all. No purpose for these right now probably to work into a quilt or purses.


These all came from JoAnn's and are destined to become dresses, skirts or shirts for Leila. Can you tell I am hoping for spring to come soon!


I bought this from JCasa to help her out during her destash, can you believe she sold it?!!?!? It is just lovely. No idea what I am going to make with it right now I am perfectly fine with just petting it!


And the piece-de-la- resistance! I got these from Sew Mama Sew, its Sierra from Anna Griffin and these pictures in NO way do it justice. I love it so much! I bought a decent yardage of the top two for a dress for Leila and a purse for me.

I need to get a handle on my addiction, I am afraid I am starting to pass it down to the next generation! (yep she is still obsessed with bread)


Guess there could be worst things I could teach her!

I've been in a similar "buying/hoarding" mood as far as fabric goes. ;) I think I'm going to need to destash soon too!

LOL! It's a sickness, this fabric hoarding thing. You think you can sew the stuff faster than you can get it in the craft room, but alas, the piles will just keep growing. I'm going to have to do another ban soon.

You have a wonderful selection of fabrics there. I specially like the ones you've bought for leila's clothes and the vintage one would look lovely made up as an Amy Butler tunic.

Those are some pretty fabrics! I have the same problem you do. I have a fabric problem :)

it's me, Val said...

I'd love it if I could place an order with you for something cute for Maia for the summer!! (Love the fabrics, btw!!)

It's not a problem, it's therapy! LOL! And it's most likely a lot less expensive and a lot more fun than the real deal. Nothing like a piece of fabric to lift your spirits and inspire you. You keep going, girlfriend!

rAw, yes. I like to call it "aspirational fabric buying."

Your fabrics all look gorgeous, and I'm sure you'll eventually find a fun use for all of them!
