My name is Mara, and I’m a fabriholic!
I have decided to join Rebecca of Making Rebecca Lynne (and about 50 other fabriholics) in a 6 month fabric fast. Like everyone else, I have waaaay too much fabric, certainly more that a 6 month supply and it’s time to stop the madness. I have a few other reasons for joining in also. I tend to plan (and buy) a lot faster than I can cut and sew. I’m hoping that this 6 month breather will allow my hands to catch up with my brain. My other big reason is necessity. The company that I spent the last decade working for went out of business last Friday and I am currently without a job (and paycheck). So there is definitely no money for pretty fabric right now. One of the first steps is making a list of our WIP’s. I’m in the process of that right now and will post that separately and soon.
My goals and rules are almost identical to those that Rebecca posted:
- Backing: purchasing a backing to finish a quilt top is permissible. However, attempting to use fabric in your possession for a backing is preferable.
- Books and Magazine purchases are allowed as they are not fabric. Notions acceptable too
One of my last purchases was Flats by Angela Yosten. I can’t want to stat playing with them!
