Tuesday is a prime example of my addiction. Do I need fabric? Absolutely not. But I had an appointment followed by a lunch date in a city other than mine, and so I looked up where the quilting stores were. I had a gap before lunch and programmed the addresses into my GPS, then drove to two quilting stores. One I had never been to before, the other I have been to but not since I started the quilting side of my sewing hobby.
At the first store, the Oakville Sewing Centre, I found these beauties:
|Fat quarters to add to the stash|
|1/4m of mini harlequin|
|More yummy fat quarters|
What makes this more ridiculous is that I am also dancing to my mailbox each day because I am expecting three packages with fabric: my Kona Solids of the Month club from Sew Sisters, and two blogger bundles from Pink Castle fabric ordered days apart.
I thought that perhaps I should go at least a month without buying any fabric. If the last six months are any indication, a month without buying fabric may be impossible. August is obviously done with, and so I was thinking of going on a fabric fast for September. Then I remembered- my husband is taking me for a weekend in Chicago in September and already found quilting stores for me! (Wonderful man). So I can't do September. October it is! I'll see if I can make it from October 1 to October 31 without buying fabric. I'm breaking into a sweat just thinking about it! Are you better at resisting the fabric-buying urge than I am?
