So yesterday I spent an obscene amount of money at Quilt Arts- but how can you turn down Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry- for $5 a yard? You just can't. It's not possible!
Now I am going to go on a fabric diet. Seriously- I have so much fabric I can hardly find places for it all! My culling and cutting did no good- my sewing room is just as crowded as it was before. And I have many, many more yards coming! Everything I bought yesterday has a purpose, but I'll still have to deal with it until I can get it sewn!
So, no more fabric for me! No more Etsy, no more local or internet shops, and definitely NO SHOWS- which includes the International Quilt Festival coming up here in Chicago in April. I will go to the show in Madison, WI in September, though. I think I can sew through some of my stash by then! So from now until September- no fabric purchases.
I found out recently that there are some members of my quilt guild going through hard times financially, and they can't buy fabric right now. I think that's a perfect place to give away some of my fabric!
This is going to be hard. But I know I can do it!
