It Was Only a Matter of Time...

I haven't purchased any fabric since December of last year. At first, I thought I might go a little bit insane without my fabric fix, but as time passed (and the tremors subsided and the sweating lessened and the...okay, you get the idea), I found that I was quite content with the amount of fabric that I owned. I became complacent and smug - I am the master (mistress?) of my fabric, not the other way around.

Well, what is it they say about pride coming before the fall?

Needless to say, I fell off the wagon.* It's not my fault though. I blame Fabric Mart. Beautiful spring/summer fabrics...silk, cotton, linen...20% off sale...sheesh, I didn't stand a chance. So, here's a pictorial view of my shame:



Feel free to revel in my 35 yards of debauchery! And if you want share in this fabric bounty, hurry up, you only have until the end of the day tomorrow to get 20% off.

ETA: Bummer! I was just informed that the fabric with the pink, purple and green applique flowers on the border is sold out, so I won't be getting any of it (and of course, that fabric was the original reason why I placed the order). Dang it, I hate when that happens!

Shannon, when you fall off the wagon, you do it in grand style. Lovely fabric and it will be fun to see what you sew with it.

Wow, you did fall off in style! Good for you, hope you enjoy your new fabrics and don't feel guilty about them :-) i am curious to know about your stats in the side bar - particularly the money earned and money spent bit - do you also find time to sew for others? Do you mind me asking? Or have you given yourself a budget and that is your tally?

LOL! I couldn't even keep up with the simple formula you gave me - so I don't know why you would look to me as an example especially since I succumbed to the same sale. But you did get some beauties...I know because I own some of them already or bought them myself today too!

Gorgeous! Definitely summer colors.

What beautiful fabric to "fall" onto. 35 yards is a very good fix. No shame. Just another opportunity to be creative and beautiful.

Wow! I resisted, but I was sorely tempted! Did you do the required exercise to pay for these?

Nancy K said...

Oh, they are gorgeous fabrics by the way.
