2014 :: Ready to Quilt
1. Malka Flying Geese
So there you have it, all my ready-to-sew projects. I'm not proud to admit it but a couple of these are quilts that have been waiting years to get quilted. Kind of crazy right? And of course I keep remembering more projects to add to yesterday's list - sheesh! This fabric diet has already been a wonderful exercise for me, just in awareness of all the projects I already have planned and purchased for. I think I definitely needed a time-out to catch my breath and think about all these projects. I sew primarily because I love to sew but realistically how much money should I be spending on a hobby? And what am I going to do with all these quilts when I get them done? Some are planned as gifts and some are going to go in my etsy shop because we don't need 20 more quilts (not that we wouldn't enjoy them ;-).
I've been tempted by a few small things so far but over-all just the act of taking stock has made it easy for me to see how much sewing I can do this year without buying a thing! It's also making me actually USE my stash and scraps which is surprisingly pleasing once I get past my initial "but if I USE it it'll be GONE FOREVER" hoarding reaction. So silly right, like there won't always be more gorgeous fabric being released all the time!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and if you're participating in the Fabriholics Anonymous fabric diet I'd love to hear how it's going for you so far.
Linking up with Making Rebecca Lynne for the January check-in.
