Being as DH is out of town for a few days, I stay up late sewing--normally. But not so with the other evening. Of course, Fabric Mart sent an email flyer for some discounted corduroy. Now, I love corduroy for the winter, and then looked a sweater knit to go with it. Then, silly me, I looked at their link for the $15 bundle. There was just one left. Oh my...

So with trembling and quivering hands, as well as a mind that said, "Should I or Shouldn't I", I clicked on the button to add it to my cart. Then I was having buyer's remorse--"What on earth do I need more fabric for? Yes, I'm sewing but what I'm sewing isn't fast enough to take care of this bundle--should I receive it. But I won't worry about it because it was just one bundle left (they have to make more) and I probably won't get it." was the conversation in my head.

9:00 this morning and the package arrived---My oh my!!! Of course, the corduroy was beautiful, as well as the sweater knit. Although somewhat impulsive, those purchases weren't impulsive as the bundle. Then I spied it--wrapped in its plastic bag to show a "bundle" Click here

Left to right:
Silk, 1-5/8
Gabardine, 1-5/8
White cotton stretch twill, 1-1/2 x 60
Red cotton rib sweater knit, 1-5/8 x 60
Off white wool, 2 yd
Plaid poly chiffon, 1-5/8 x 45

And all for $15. I am stunned. Although the fabrics are beautiful, I feel I must have just those I'm absolutely interested in. So take a look at the classifieds to see which ones I'm letting go.

And in the meantime, I'm staying off the computer and sewing today.

sure you are.
those fabric shops keep you looking and looking until you get hook. oops! another package in the mail. Enjoy you new stuff when you get it. Maybe another post of fabric shops will pop up and you staying up late and ordering.
I'm the same way.

Not to be an enabler, but I just spotted 2 different really nice designer fabrics on fabric.com, one of which I purchased from harts fabric for the full price, the other that I've just been eyeing.

The one I bought I paid 12.99/yd for is listed for 4.19 (different colorway than I bought, but seriously)! And the other from 18.99 to 8.99.

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.

Why is it that, when I am not sewing, I have a tendency to shop for fabric? And of course I can shop much faster than I can sew. :)

I love FabricMart, but have not bought any so far this year. I keep compiling lists, though. :)

I looked too. And bought some. It wasn't what was posted, it was instead some woven silk at about $3.75/yd when all the discounts kicked in. Now I have to go and fess up in the fabric fast thread.

Late-night shopping sucked me in, too, bit it was for a good cause: Nice stretch black denim at fabric.com at a reasonable price (half the cost of many well-known vendors).
