That's the easy part. Admitting that I kind of love fabric so much I can't stop buying it and sometimes hoarding it away until the perfect project comes along. Given how much fabric I own and how much sewing I've done I do wonder if I don't have too much fabric. So it was a no brainer for me to sign up to 6 months of fabric fasting with Fabriholics Anonymous.
But how have I done this first month?
Well, the only fabric I have bought are these vintage pillow cases. When I signed up I said the exception to my fabric purchasing would be vintage sheeting. For one there is a swap imminent and also vintage sheets are so rare around these parts it would be silly of me to leave any behind in a charity shop.
No other fabric has been purchased. I've even sent some little scraps out of my stash to others. I think I've done pretty well considering there was a big UK destash going on the other weekend on IG. But even though I followed the feeds with delight I didn't place a single bid. Afterwards I didn't really feel I'd missed out on anything. I think it may have been worse to have wanted something and tried for it only to be pipped to the post - Looking for the silver lining there!
Of course my lack of sewing time this month due to lurgys and birthdays has meant I've been less fabric focused. Oh and Saturday night Chief asked to see his quilt. He said it was OK. (This is as enthusiastic as he gets really.) He said he would have preferred it without the tools but it was ok and he liked the back only the green was very bright. His next comment was when will it be finished. Ha! His guess is as good as mine. I've got to work out how to baste the beast first!
