I have a confession to make: I’m afraid I might be a compulsive hoarder. Want proof? Just have a look at my stack of new fabrics and tell me I’m not crazy.
I’m currently somewhat obsessed with watching shows about people who have compulsive hoarding problems recently. I’m also somewhat obsessed about starting new projects that involve new fabric. Do you see the parallel? ARE YOU FEARFUL YET?
But look! SNAILS! Can we even begin to discuss how much I love this fabric? Because I do. (But do you think that red and cream Amy Butler dot print matches the red from the mushrooms? I actually already had that one and pulled it out because I couldn’t find a red that I liked when I found the other four colors. Thoughts?)
And then I’ve been collecting browns and greens. I think this is going to make an fantastic top, but I have no idea what to do with it. I’m stumped on what to start. So far, my only idea has been to make a Single Girl with it, but I’m not sure I have enough variation in fabrics. Again, thoughts?
And here are the miscellaneous fabrics. I’ve been picking them up since the beginning of the year now, and I’m pretty sure they don’t all really go together. I need to keep planning with this team. All wonderful, for sure, but not all necessarily meant to be together. Which I think is a hoarding-type thought. I think.
The one good thing about all this is that I haven’t acutally begun any projects yet. (Which I think is certainly adding to this issue!) I’m still on track to get the quilting on my Love Beads quilt finished up by the end of the month. I’ll also hopefully be back with two finished knits by the end of the week. That is, unless I become buried alive by my fabric, yarn and craft supplies.
