tale of a fibber.

Hello, my name is Patti and I am a fabricholic.
This is where you clap for me...clap, clap, clap.

You may remember when, just a few days ago, I swore off buying any new fabric until I used up what is in my extensive stash.

I lied. I lied, lied, lied. Sorry about that.

Sometimes, one hears the sound of a distant fabric shop, calling your name and you must jump in your 4-Runner and drive like the wind. Searching, searching for the source of that faint calling. (It doesn't hurt to have the GPS turned on...why get lost?) And then...through the doors of a charming little shop you enter and you find yourself swept away by all the possibilities. Really.

So I bought only three fat quarters...and...a...pattern. But I swear, I spent less than $17. I promise. The Fall patterns spoke to my Yankee heart, with their pretty shades of orange, green, brown and I just had to rescue the pretties from their boring life on the shelf. They were just that pretty, I couldn't pass them up. They're from the Moda line, by Sandy Gervais, entitled "Gobble, Gobble." (Pattern #17478).

So I did. I gobbled them up!

Shame, shame. You'll have to start going to weekly meetings to help you with this addiction, obsession. Admitting it is the first step to recovery. You are on the road to recovery.

Hello, my name is Donna and I am also a fabriholic. I too have said that I will not buy more fabric until I use what I have, but what if I need to buy more fabric so that I CAN use what I already have? And what if they are having a SWEET sale on the perfect fabric for that project that I always wanted to do, but could never find the right fabric let a lone on sale! I don't think I need to quit. I just need a bigger craft room!

Hey! My name is Jenny, and I too am a fabriholic. I would love to support you in your quest to refrain from purchasing more fabric...but alas, I can't. I'm weak when it comes to new fabric. I haven't met a fabric that I couldn't love. :0) Good luck with your noble intentions! I'm with Donna, the fabric in my stash will always compliment some new fabric for a future project that I'm sure I will get to SOMEDAY! So therefore, I continue to shop, and I continue to buy. It's a vicious cycle! :0)

Don't you know that it is only bad if you buy ugly fabric? As long as it's cute, you can buy whenever you want. So you are OK, girl!

*blink blink* you lied to me? ~chin quivering~ *sniff sniff* I am going to go have to buy some fabric to make me feel better.
