and I'm a fabric-a-holic. It's true, I admit it.... I just can't stop. Someone please help me and my wallet to "Just say NO". When the urge hits or I see a piece I just have to have........ nothing can stop me...... AND I MEAN NOTHING! Yesterday, I got these two "always on backorder" fabrics in my mailbox:
I adore them....... especially the Bird Seed fabric! Oh, the feelings that it produces! Then, last night I ordered yet more........... I got this, this, this and THIS FABULOUS PIECE THAT'S ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS ON BACKORDER! Then yesterday while out with my Mom I got these from The Goodwill:
Do you all realize that I just got back from a shop hop earlier this month?
Hold up, I just thought of something! You do know that I'm opening a fabric shop with my Mom and sister Debi in a couple of months right? Don't you think it would be equivalent to a crack junkie opening a crack pipe shop or a "Come and smoke your Crack Cafe" type of place? It's going to be all around me on a daily basis taunting me to touch it, smell it, use it...........
Hey, wait..... what if........ and I'm just saying, what if........ my addiction to fabric completely bypasses my addiction to Dr. Pepper, bread, cookie dough, french fries, soups, chocolate, Nips, sweet tea and potatoes? What if? Holy crud....... this could be it! The moment my over 45 pound body has been waiting for......... Eureka, I may have solved my food issues without rehab. I'll definitely keep ya posted on this one! My mind is all a-flutter now!
Before I get all crazy minded over the new discovery....... let me share my other discoveries from yesterday's Goodwill visit. I found the fabrics from above, these two Glass Bake dishes:
Some really cool Albums for my sister Debi...... I got her these but I didn't get to take any pictures before she gathered them up and took them home. Years ago, she bought herself a stereo with a record player so she could listen to all of our old albums which is why I didn't keep them.
- Shaun Cassidy....."Da Doo Run Run", like we had when we were young
- Captain and Tennille .... I think it was Muskrat Love
- A Hawaiian album with traditional music.... LOVE IT
- Andy Gibb, "Shadow Dancing"
And then this...... which is my favorite. I have it in the window above my sink. I bought it because I soooo loved the colors and thought it would be a great place to put my wedding rings while I do dishes and stuff:
I don't usually have that much luck...... speaking of Thrifting luck..... go see what Rhiannon found! Lucky girl!
I better go figure out what-in-the-heck I'm making for supper since my Angel of a Husband will be home soon. (Better make it look like I've done more than I have cleaning-wise too!). I'll leave you with what I sewed earlier today in my studio. I'm still a bit lagging on my Etsy orders but can actually say I will have them ALL sent out in the morning! This is just the bottom of the dresses where I put my label.
