A late night rummage, unravelling piles and piles of fabric, more and more as I went. Countless purchases, some remembered, fresh as they are, some being hoarded away years and years...the creases proof of that.
No more. As I scrapped off a planned trip to the local fabric establishment...I made a quiet but timely vow to myself.
Pen and paper in hand, I labelled each piece of fabric, hunted out patterns, started planning and will vow to make my way through this lot before the imminent move. If I need to I'll stock up on notions and threads, but that's it.
It's the good kick up the ol' backside I needed I think. There is a tendency for me to overlook that summer fabric I didn't quite get to because the thrill of planning a winter cape is just too "right now"...but fearing I'm becoming "fabric collector" and not "clothes sewer"....I'm clearing out my sewing room and feeling motivated a ready to bunker down and get going.
Have you ever given yourself a good crafty challenge?
Please tell me...do you "collect fabric" too?
