Fabricoholism

Flower printed cotton.

Oh dear, uh-oh, and whoops.

When I woke up this morning, I was pretty convinced that I was a normal(ish) person. An average (but not too average) Jo. But now. Well, I’m not so sure.

My name’s Joanna, and I’m a fabricoholic.

    I’m in denial, I have exactly enough fabric, and I’m sure I should go get a few more pieces because I’ll definitely get it sewn up this summer. *nods*

    • I also have exactly the right amount of fabric, and I will continue to have exactly the right amount of fabric no matter how many pieces happen to add themselves to my collection!

    oh I wonder what your first make will be with some of these Jo …
    one or two classics here aren’t there ?? Morris ?

    • The green and flowery fabric is a Morris print, called ‘Wild Tulip’, and I love it! I’m very excited to get sewing with all of them, but I’ve been slacking on the sewing front for the least week (eek!). I will definitely post some completed projects soon…

  4. Before my mother died, I had only tried sewing a couple of times. She left me all of her sewing supplies and much to my surprise was enormous stash of fabric! I have totes and more totes full of fabric in my garage. It will take me years to use it all up, but thanks to the supplies, she started me on a hobby I never knew i would love. I only wish she could have been there to teach me how to use it. Four years later and I stlll have not had to buy any fabric.

    • It is lovely that her fabric stash got you into sewing, but obviously sad that she couldn’t be there to teach you. I hope it keeps you sewing for many years to come!
