I'm really determined not to add a lot more to the fabric closet. So even though it's brimming with luscious possibilities, every once and awhile I find something that either fits my lifestyle or piques my creative interest. It also doesn't help if the internet site is running a 20% off sale! *LOL*
Since the last silk twill I got from Fabric Mart was so wonderful and I'm having a love affair with orange right now...I bought three yards of this:
I also bought four yards of this navy/camel pinstripe tropical wool for work:
I've found that I'm lacking in navy fabric and want to beef this portion of the closet up a little more. Who doesn't need good navy pieces when working in the financial industry?!
Now I've put both of these pieces in the cart at Fabric Mart and then closed it out several times. Too much fabric, not enough time, running out of storage space...all of those things ran through my mind every time I closed the site, fabric unbought. But today, my daughter was looking over my shoulder and she said, why don't you give me 7 yards from the closet and then you won't feel so bad about buying those pieces.
...and a trade was made! My daughter is now anxiously awaiting an opportunity to go through the closet and pick out 7 yards of fabric to add to her burgeoning stash. Although since she is home every day with the baby she has been making a few more things than I have. I think she has her eyes on a piece of denim and a sweater knit which I will probably let her have. And I no longer have to worry about how to fit 7 more yards in the closet...because they are replacement pieces...because a trade was made! *LOL*
The 20% off sale on Fabric Mart's site is on until October 7th...Sample cut fabrics and mailers are exempt. Just in case you were interested! *LOL*
A parting shot of "The Little Prince" who is now 6 months old!
I'm off to sew!
