These 17 pieces of fabric have shown up from Fabric Mart and fabric.com in the last six weeks. They are a mixture of ponte, wovens, maybe a knit piece or two, and denim. Kristin asked about my fabric purchasing in a couple of posts back since I hadn't posted many fabric acquisitions lately. So I thought I would share that I'm still addicted.
Oh and let's not forget these two pieces recently purchased from Metro Textiles...
I'm trying to make a conscious decision to buy less...skipping more of Fabric Mart's sales...though it's been hard lately since they've been running so many amazing sales. I try to tell myself that I already own some of whatever I'm looking at, because usually I do. But every once in awhile I'll find pieces that either call to me or are what I've been thinking about using and they aren't in the collection...so I buy them.
Mostly though I wrote this post for me. This week at work, I was handed our meeting schedule for April and May. Let's just say that I'm going to spend a lot of time at work during the next 8 weeks, which has caused me to cancel my vacation in May, and may mean that I will be sleeping more on the weekends instead of sewing. I even have to work tomorrow...*sigh* So I wrote this post to remind myself NOT to buy fabric since I won't be sewing. Hopefully being able to look at these photos will help me not to load my cart on my favorite fabric internet sites and pull the trigger...hopefully!
BTW, Fabric Mart is having a wonderful sale on linen 40% off and an additional 20% off their 50% off category. Do me a favor? Go over there and buy up the yardage so I won't be tempted to! *LOL*
...as always more later!
