Hi! I am a fabriholic anonymous. We probably have different views when it comes to how much fabrics a quilter should have, but I feel like I have reached the maximum of mine and its overflowing. The feel of guiltiness for not cutting those fabrics and working with them has creepily got into me. At some stage I don't really feel like happy mail are really as much as happy as it used to be. It became a sign of my fabric shopping issue instead. No fun!
I also feel like I could be more productive if I just stop shopping and sew instead.
Thereafter, the stash will be revised to see whether the fast shall continue or not.
Nonetheless, I have made exceptions :
a) solid white or coordinating solid with the current w.i.p that shall be finished can be bought during the period
b) backing / binding fabrics can be purchased so that all quilts can be completed
c) quilt for publication which should be bought only at the time of making
Here is a current photo of 75% of my stash. I am organizing them again and will be taking more photos once it is organized. It will be my "BEFORE" photo. Wait till June 2014 and see the "AFTER". Hope I succeed! Wish me luck!
So, what I did today was unsubscribe to all online shop newsletter. It was HARD! but I DID it.
I am going to have to close my ears and eyes for sale so that this fasting would go much easier.
I am looking forward to a more productive year, making out of stash and stop wasting time filling up fabric in shopping carts!
Thanks for being here as my witness. I shall update from time to time how the diet is going.
