From my website:
Destashification Project

If you give someone who sews several yards of fine woolen fabric, she will need a pattern.

If she finds a pattern in The Stash, it will specify interfacing.

If she goes to the store to buy interfacing, a piece of fabric will sing its siren song to her.

That piece of fabric will need a pattern, so she will visit the pattern counter.

Unable to choose a specific pattern, she will settle on three that might work.

But they require buttons, thread, zippers and new sewing machine needles.

Buyer's remorse is reduced by 30% because the coupon indicates 30% off.

When she gets home, she discovers she forgot to purchase the interfacing. So, she must return to the store to buy interfacing.

But, if she goes to the store to buy interfacing, a piece of fabric will sing its siren song to her........

Oh, I can so relate.

One of our local fabric stores has a pop-up sale store with nothing over $5/m at the moment (including silks and wool........ mmm!)
I went to buy some $1 lining this morning, and also came home with waterproof coating and three different knits

This is similar to what happens when I sew...

But if everyone does it, then it's okay, right?

So this is a story about "every sewer?" It's scarey to think that there more of "me" let loose in the world!

Glad to hear it's not just "me' who goes to the fabric store and comes home with all kinds of stuff except that which I went there for in the first place!
