I Thought It Was Over

I was cured...I thought.  I had an affliction, or maybe it was an affection....for fabric.  And then I moved.  After packing it, moving it so I could load it, loading it, unloading it, putting it somewhere, putting it somewhere else, then moving the boxes so I could get to other boxes, moving it again so I could make room to put the stuff in the boxes where the other boxes were sitting...after lifting it, carrying it, toting it and sliding it, I was done with it.  Once it was unpacked and finally arranged I thought I didn't need any more fabric.  I thought my obsession with fabric was over.

Turns out, time dulls the memories.  Sore muscles heal and slowly, in those quiet moments I found myself thinking about fabric.  And then Tammy emailed me that the Yoshiko Jinzenji fabrics had arrived.  I first saw her new fabrics at quilt market in Salt Lake and fell in love with them.  When I saw her fabrics again that deep place in me where those secret fabric desires live was awakened.

I popped onto Tammy's store, Marmalade Fabrics, and stocked up.  I can't wait to see them in person.  They're so unique and I love working with fabrics that are different and interesting. Tammy tells me they are selling fast.  I'm not surprised.  Take a minute and check them out.

I picked up a few other pieces too.  She's got so much great fabric, it's hard to resist.  Who am I kidding...cured...I'm sicker than ever!

Though, when the box arrives, I might get someone else to move it.

I have moved several times with ALL of my fabric:) I can't bear to part with any of it, but really do understand your being tired of constantly lifting boxes of it and moving them hither and yon! It is so nice to "find" pieces that you have forgotten about, too:) Addicts are never "cured" only in remission!!!

Oh no, no amount of moving, packing, slugging, or dragging great caches - no, make that truckloads- of luscious, delicious fabrics will "dim" (much less put a dent in) an FABRIC affection (AKA ADDICTION)!
Marmalade Fabrics is AWESOME! There is so much beauty there!

I'm not sure there is a cure for fabric addiction...at least I hope there isn't!

Nothing that a nice glass of pinot grigio won't cure. Well, maybe not cure, but make sufferable.

good call on getting someone else to move it!

I live in Wyoming in a teeny tiny apartment in the summer, and Ohio in the winter. This summer, I took as much fabric as summer clothes. Next summer, I'll take way fewer clothes so there's more room for fabric!

you silly girl!

Ok - so I have to know. When you say "stock up" on fabrics, what does that mean? I have often found entire lines of fabric that I love and wonder how much do I "need"? I am so curious...
