However, last night I went in to cut some duppioni swatches for my boss...long story and no I'm not sewing anything for her...it is for her daughter's doll house. After closing the doors, I had a really good look around my living room and decided that it was time to put some fabric away! If I had to shovel it in with a forklift, it was going into the closet!
This morning I started working on the task...and it has been such a walk of remembrance...this will definitely help me during those weak, stressed-filled moments when I surf into a fabric site and a piece starts speaking loudly to me...because I already own some very lovely pieces.
I had forgotten how much I think in coordinates...and since I recently completed the JCC...I'm thinking that I need to employ the sewing system I used to get those four pieces completed going forward! Just one piece a weekend nets me a four piece capsule at the end of the month...and since I'm finally at a good place in my working wardrobe, I can spend a little more time making some quality garments.
I even touched a few pieces that I had totally forgotten purchasing...thank God for those little white tags either from the fabric retailer or that I added myself. I know quite a few of you love fabric as much as I do and collect or stash it also...this post from Gigi and Shannon's last two posts lets me know that I'm not alone.
There are some cute pieces in the wash, going through the pretreatment program so that they will be ready for their moment in the sun. There are now two less boxes of fabric in the living room. The fabrics from those boxes have taken their rightful places of honor in the fabric closet...and I have an even greater desire to sew!
So if someone could please purchase this silk border print from SawyerBrook Fabrics....
I think I could last at least for a fortnight without purchasing more fabric...and I'm going to try to take it a fortnight at a time remembering what amazing pieces I already own and how they deserve their time in the spotlight, too!
