I've spent most of the morning, the afternoon and the evening switching over fabric...you know most people move their clothing around...summer clothing out of the closet and into the spare closet in the attic or the basement and their winter clothing in but not their fabric. Then again most people don't have as much fabric hanging around as I do...*sigh*
I love my fabric closet really I do! It's just that today after spending some real quality time with it and seeing just how much fabric I actually own...*sigh*...I mean I have a lot! Okay honestly more than a lot! I realize that now and in the near future, I have no business buying another piece...so anyone wanting to meet me in the garment district...it just ain't happening! *LOL* The first thing they tell recovering addicts is to stay away from temptation...and I need to be staying away...far away! Yesterday afternoon I was really gloaming on these two knits from Emmaonesock:
Wouldn't this one go great with both my green and pumpkin dresses!
And wouldn't this one work amazingly well with the pumpkin dress and then all of the brown pieces currently in my wardrobe! Well neither one of them will be coming to my house now! Because I already have some pretty awesome sweater knit pieces from EOS, as well as, some amazing ones from a few other internet fabric sites!
Since it took all day to jam fabrics that had been lying around my living room and bedroom into the fabric closet and switch over bins from spring/summer to fall/winter, there was no sewing going on here...and can I say yet again there won't be any shopping going on around here either!
This is what the pile in the bedroom looks like now:
And this is what the pile in the living room looks like now:
Finally, I am relieved to be done! It went a little quicker before I started watching E's Red Carpet coverage for the Emmys...but I'm done...I'm contrite and I need to schedule a few more days off to sew! Because at the rate I'm presently sewing, my grandchildren will need to sew along with me to get this collection down!
And a parting shot:
My daughter rooting around in the closet trying to claim the best pieces for herself! *LOL* Actually she lightened the closet's load by 20 yards...a mere raindrop during a torrential downpour!
