Fabric avoidance is failing


I haven't bought fabric in months.  And I'm starting to get the shakes.  This little bundle is high on my list.  Among many, many others. 


What is a girl to do?

That hedgehog fabric is super cute!

I'm dying to buy fabric for my next project (I buy for each project, rather than just buying... as much I would prefer otherwise), but I have a bunch of other things I must finish first. *sigh*

Meg said...

I don't blame you in the slightest. I got some of the stripe in a scrap bag, and I've totally fallen in love with it!

Trudi said...

Well, you've been sew good perhaps a little treat to yourself won't hurt, surley? (I confess I relented today too! New shop in town!)

Kimberly said...

Hey, less fattening than chocolate hedgehogs, so I say GO FOR IT!

Aren't you glad you asked for advice?

alice said...

I have managed to go a whole month without buying any--WooHoo!!! It must be time to buy something???
Very cute fabric. You know what they say--if you deny yourself too much you will binge!!!

Michelle said...

LOL! BUY IT!

Rafael's Mum said...

Buy, buy, buy, buy... come on, you know you want it! too cute!!

Kelly said...

OMG. The little hedgehogs. Seriously, you have some willpower if you are still resisting this... I could die from the cuteness!

Bree said...

When there are hedgehogs involved, there is no restraint. GO FOR IT!

Shorty said...

I can see why you're in such great need of a purchase! Those little hedgehogs and flowers are super cute!

Annette said...

So cute!!
I have the same problem...it's so hard! But I struck a deal with my husband.
I (having had a baby this past March) still have some weight to lose that was left over from the pregnancy. I know (and my husband does to) that it will make me more energetic, and a happier person all around. So, we've set some goals for me to reach. Every few pounds I lose, I get to spend a certain amount of money on new fabrics, without feeling guilty! Trust me, the pounds are flying off, and I've almost reached my first goal!
This has been the best diet I have ever been on!!

Just buy it! It's under $20! That's less than tickets to a movie and popcorn and a drink. or...less than lunch out. or...less than a pizza...I could go on and on! And the plus....you'll have something gorgeous to show for it after you buy it!!

Elissa said...

silversmith said...

my fabric diet ended with the pre-order of dr. seuss fabrics. and then i binged like crazy after 4 months of not buying unless i absolutely needed it for a project already in the works. and i have the quilt fest this weekend...bad for a binge fabricholic.

traceyjay said...

I went about 4 months... it is hard...

I sold a quilt so I could justify buying some more.

And wow... it felt good... so good.

Christy said...

Fabric avoidance? Really? Never heard of such a thing! ;)

I'm with the rest of them....GO BUY IT!

Rachel said...

Libster said...

how could you NOT buy those hedghogs?? my daughter will go mad when she sees them!

I am Just One Mom said...

snag some of your current fabrics and use them to put a color band on your kitchen/bath towels. phew. now that you have used some of your existing fabrics you will be motivated to do more creating and then you will feel worthy of the new purchase. do something and you will feel better!

COFFEE & MORPHINE said...

!!! Hedgehogs and scarfs!!!! Ooohhhhh!!! :)

Lynne S of Oz said...

hahaha, I've been eyeballing those hedgehogs for a while too...
I fell off the wagon completely this week. I bought $200 of fabric from Hawthorne Threads and Calico Cottage. Ooops!

Pearl Maple said...

too hard to resist those charming little prints, bet they could develop into somthing really special

Beki - TheRustedChain said...

Love it!

If it makes you feel any better, I buy fabric and I don't even know how to sew. I just buy it because I love the look of it! Designer fabrics are my fave.
