I really admire all these people who can fabric fast for months or a year at a time. I'm not that strong! I did manage to walk away from the computer on Saturday after the FabricMart sale email with a free bundle if you spent $75. I kept thinking, "They're just toying with you." I really don't NEED any fabric. They do have their leather skins 50% off though and even though I just bought a couple of black goat skins, I was really tempted with the new cow skins they have. I was good though.
So I thought about it yesterday and am thinking I can do a fast for a month. Just a month! So for the whole month of May I will not purchase any new fabric, unless it's lining or something to go with something I already have AND I will not purchase any new patterns! Whew...I'm getting all clammy here and feel a bit of an anxiety attack coming on.
I really need to do this though. I have surpassed all my storage area, claimed new areas under beds and even in my son's closet. I have patterns coming out the kazoo which I don't feel all that bad about. McVogerick has been discontinuing patterns altogether too quickly lately so I grab them up when they come out and are on sale.
So here's to a month of stash sewing both fabric and patterns! Wish me luck and keep me honest if you catch me falling off the wagon!
I have ths skirt from Burda 11-2009-120 all done except for the hem. It's in a navy blue linen. I'm channelling my prepster. I really like how it sits low on the waist. I plan on making another one out of navy/green/red madras plaid. I will only be able to get the single pleat though since the fabric isn't wide enough but it should look cute anyways. I'll post some pics when I'm done. It's a great skirt.
