Well, I knew it would be a huge challenge to go a year without buying any fabric at all. I just love the potential that a length of fabric represents. It could be anything I want it to be! And since I'm not buying clothes, it's nice to buy fabrics I fall in love with.
So, when Blackbird fabrics sent out the April newsletter announcing new fabrics, I caved. She had hot pink linen / rayon!!! Caroline, you're such a temptress.
Look at it!
Hmm? What's that you say? Something else in the bag?
Just a little shirting cotton.
And maybe some sheep. I can never resist sheep.
I have plans for all of these though! Truly!
I promptly removed myself from the Blackbird Fabrics mailing list. And Fabricana mailing list. I obviously can't trust myself when it's delivered right to me.
I'm hoping to save money to go on a trip to Montreal next year. My BFF moved there 8 years ago and I've never been to visit! Plus, after a year of fabric fasting I'll be able to restock in the Garment District. :D
