What do you see when you look at your sewing room? I see enough fabric to easily make at least 30 quilts – more than half of them queen size!! And that is with what is on my shelves, my scrap boxes, project boxes already in progress and my two plastic storage bins & one canvas box that contain scraps under the quilting frame that somehow I never seem to delve into.
And still I think of buying more – why is it that we have to have more fabric – what is it about our craft that makes us compulsive buyers (some of us that is I know some of you have more self control) when it comes to fabric – I am not quite as compulsive about anything else – but fabric!
So as you can tell I seem to have nothing to write about today – yesterday was an extremely lazy day in the quilting/sewing department – I just didn’t feel like it for a change other than stitching on the bird last night that I had fused in place on the Postage Stamp border.
This is a rather small space to have enough in it to make over 30 quilts – (other than background of course) – I know I am lucky to have this small room that used to be bedroom to our two daughters for a good 10+ years – I know a lot of you make due with the kitchen table and have to put it all away when done and then others have a big quilt studio to idle way their creative time.
I start to inspect the shelves and boxes and remember what is all here I think of patchwork, applique, hexies – oh my! I do not even think of counting up yardage and keep track like some do of what goes in the room and what gets used – I really would go crazy thinking about it.
Stacks of fat quarters and boxes full of squares of all sizes – enough in those boxes of scraps already cut for who knows how many quilts. I am linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Crazy Mom Quilts.
So what do you see when you enter your quilting space – do you have enough fabric to last a life time too? Or do you think you need to visit the sale at Craftsy and stock up some more – I have been looking and found some notions – leather stick on thimbles for $4.61 package of 12. I didn’t say I don’t need notions!! I always need more of these thimbles and they are close to half price of what you can pay at other places. I have to save when I can and ordered 4 packages – that should get me through the year I do believe.
