Today I came downstairs to work on my latest project and even though I've been resisting purchasing fabric (yeah that not visiting sewing sites ain't working cause it's a great stress reliever at work!) sometimes the call is just too loud! Yesterday, I got to calm the siren call by picking up my latest MSN purchase. However, in all honestly, two additional pieces came home with me.
Green/navy/red/yellow striped wool flannel
Pink 'n white wool/poly blend
They have been placed on the shelves and are awaiting their chance to shine. So today I opened the curtains to see all of the fabric goodness that abides in the sewing cave. Sometimes when I'm really busy, I forget what I have. Occasionally opening the curtains allow me to wallow in what's there and remember. Here's my view today...
There is actually a little space on the shelves now and I'm finally starting to believe that the sew more, give away some, and buy a whole lot less is working. I'm also getting to the place where I have no great need to fill those spaces with loads of pieces purchased because they are on sale, or I'd like to own it, or I'm having a bad day at work and need to buy something. I really just want to sew what I have, so opening the curtains helps to remind me of that fact.
And in full disclosure, some of that space is attributed to the fact that one of those last three bins has made it's way into the sewing cave...
...right now it's holding the coat fabrics and a few other pieces that I want to sew right away.
I will be sewing later this evening. The grandbabies have shown up so I'm going to have dinner with them first...but I do have a list that needs working on slowly but surely...however today I will revel in the fabric I've collected.
...as always more later!
