"Are you going to share these 54 yards with us? I know that the spring dress has some of it, but If I remember correctly, only 1.5 yd. I need some vicarious buying pleasure, having been good at only 2 yards."
My first thought was to gather the fabric up and take a picture of it all. I mean there are some very pretty pieces in there. However, my very next thought was "oh gosh, the backlash!" Who would the post offend because they are either out of a job, thinks it being ostentatious, tired of fabric posts, etc...and it made me stop and think...and of course come up with some more questions.
Do posts of fabric purchases really offend readers? Or another way, do you think pics of fabric purchased in these troubled economic times is offensive? Why isn't fabric and patterns treated with the same accord as the paint and canvas that artists use - since we can't make anything without these tools? Why is the purchase of such items almost denigrated?
It's almost like a folder I was reading a few weeks ago on PR, where the author questioned if she should take up sewing because it was turning into a costly venture. I never posted to the folder. I read the responses and closed it out shaking my head, thinking that if you are questioning the cost, this is just not the hobby for you!
But here is the most important question for me? Do I care? Obviously not because Nancy in response to your inquiry...below is the shot of the fabrics purchased during the month of March:
(most of it purchased from Fabric Mart but there are a few pieces here from EOS, fabric.com and FFC)
And here is my postscript...I understand that not everyone wants to read about yet another fabric or pattern purchase. I understand that at times people are searching for a technique or to learn something new. Well sometimes I have that and sometimes I don't - *LOL*
In the last couple of weeks I have finally come to acknowledge that sewing keeps me sane. That sometimes during a hard day, slipping into a fabric site and picking up a few yards helps keep me from ripping someone's head off, verbally or otherwise! *LOL*
But most importantly, this is my spot...where I can talk about the thing that excites me most...share the love, the joy and the pitfalls of my obsession...so if you're not digging the fabric or pattern talk...come by later...I'll be talking about something else then!
