OUT OF CONTROL

My fabric obsession is officially out of control!  I went to pick up some fabric for a new project I am working on and somehow I came home with tons of extra.  How does that happen?  I'll tell you how it happens, I see something beautiful, for a great price and I just can't seem to pass it up.

What is wrong with me??????


These are the fabrics I went to pick up. They are going to be used in a new client's bedroom.
I'm working on the design now and I hope to have it finished up by the end of the week to show you.  Aren't they pretty together?


Technically I didn't buy the fabric on the right, my friend did and it is the leftover from this project.  
I did buy the striped fabric on the left.  Love the natural colors and I'm such a sucker for stripes.  


I can't seem to get enough of blue and I'm crazy about this design.


I have absolutely no idea where I am going to use this, but once again, 
I'm a sucker for stripes and I love the colors.  


I tend to stockpile fabric like some people stockpile toilet paper.  I suppose if there were ever an emergency, we could wrap ourselves in fabric and keep warm or in an extreme emergency, it could even be used as toilet paper.  I said an extreme emergency.

If I can't seem to find a use for the extras I brought home today, I may be listing them for sale on my blog.  I may even incorporate them in a design board for some inspiration.  Stay tuned.

Anyone share my fabric obsession?

  5. You've got some beautiful fabrics! I have a slight addiction to fabric, too! I haven't sewn in years....just starting out, but I cannot pass up a pretty fabric. I think it would be fun to make a quilt one day.

  9. I think I have some of that affliction, too but mine goes one step further. I buy a beautiful fabric and love it so much I can't bring myself to cut it up and use it! What if I mess up and waste some of it?? What if I use it all up?? It's sick. So sometimes the fabric just sits and I see it occasionally in the pile and I think how beautiful it is. BUT, I PROMISE I won't do that to the fabrics you got for me. I told you that you're my accountability for getting things done.

  10. We share the same obsession! I actually have a yard of that same blue & white fabric but it wasn't the right blue for my current project....so I'm looking for a new home for it (pillows perhaps!) Love that striped one too (the last one)......big fan of wide stripes!
