Well, it’s that time again! Confessions! How did we all do? Do you have glorious fabric that you bought this week (Kelly?!) or were you able to resist the call of the siren?
You all gave a number of great tips last week on how to avoid fabric. The main consensus seemed to be to avoid temptation. For some of you that means avoiding the brick and mortar stores and for others that means deleting tempting emails about fabric sales. But some of you are really hard core! I love it! LOL.
I think that my favorite tip was from Lindsay who said “To avoid buying I have just stopped looking… mostly… and I deleted the more addicting sites from my browser for now. I only kept the site I use for my Kona solids. “ Now that is dedication! I’d be afraid that I wouldn’t find those sites again. LOL.
So Lindsay, send me your address and I’ll send a little something your way!!
Another favorite tip was to organize your fabric and literally see how much fabric you already own. That personally is probably what is keeping me sane…although it’s a double edged sword. Because while I may see what I have, I also see what I don’t have!
And I’m so proud of everyone who is doing swaps instead of purchasing! Yes, there is still some money spent in shipping. But you are getting rid of the stash that you don’t need/want and getting in those more important pieces. That’s going to be my plan of attack even more after I organize. I did already set up one major swap that I’m very excited about with the lovely cilvee. And I’m mentally compiling the fabrics that I’m ready to let go…
It’s getting harder…but I think swaps could be the answer! That way you still have that high of packages coming in the mail! 😉 So let’s get some swaps going. There are a couple of groups over on Flickr set up for just this purpose if you haven’t checked them out yet.
