Okay...I've decided that I'm a total lost cause.  I promised DH in mid-June that I was going to try and have a fabric free July...well then I saw this love piece of crushed satin from EmmaOneSock...well it was the last piece, so I had to get it right.  I want to use if either for a skirt for me or dress for DD with a layer of gorgette over top.  That's not too bad, right...but of course I couldn't stop there...got the fabric club mailer...did I mention that I love lime/kiwi green...of the nylon knit was so soft...and I loved the chenille...wasn't crazy about the swearter knit, but it will look great on DD...I've been a "bad" girl...but it doesn't end.  I have a whole under the bed storage container full of knits for DD.  I want to make her outfits with coordinating solid leggings and such...found a great mailorder source...well of course she just got back to me with all the coordinates information so that I can place an order and get started on DD's outfits...To put it mildly, I ordered cotton/lycra and picot elastic to coordinate with 16 of the 17 knit prints I have for DD...so much for a fabric free July...but I will make it through August...I will I will I will...

Rebecca

PS> Oh and I forgot to mention the lime green cotton linen blend from EmmaOneSock that I've bid on...and the buttons...will it ever end...and to top it all of, this has been a less than terrific week of sewing...the outfit I made for DD is far from perfect...but at least it is wearable!

I'm feeling much better now that I've confessed!   :D

I have the new flyer from Fabric Club and have some questions about the fabrics.  I not sure about some of the things I could or should make out of some of it.  Does anyone have this and would they be willing to discuss this with me?  Several of the samples were really pretty I thought not that I need anything but of course that has nothing to do with it does it? Thanks, Maggie

Maggie, is the Fabric Club flier from www.fabricclub.com?  Or is it Fashion Fabrics Club based in St. Louis, or perhaps Fabric Mart Fabrics?

I have a subscription to Fashion Fabrics Club, but I often get my samples very late.  They  had some great sale prices recently on some nice stuff, but I am trying very hard not to buy anymore fabric and so far I have been good.  Knock on wood!

Rebecca, I don't blame you for buying up EOS fabrics.  I think the prices are great, the quality is wonderful, the service is superb, etc.  There are several of her items I really, really want right now, but I am trying so hard to be good!  I tell myself she's had wonderful stuff before, and will again, and I don't have to have a piece of everything I like!   :p   We'll see how long this pep talk lasts!   ;)

Marciak sounds like the sewing room is about up and running.  Congrats!  It's wonderful to have a dedicated sewing room.

How has everyone else been on their fabric shopping?

I can't believe the stories you told, they would sure make grazy movie it's possible I'll be committed to a safe looney because my mental health has suffered a great injury, do I have to admit it too, no  it's to cruel to say it, but I must be honest to my self, yes me too , a fabricoholic, a buttonoholic, a patteroholic, you mention and I'm a holic in it.My sewing career started under the age of ten, only it was about to be in small scale for many years to come. Stashing fabrics that I really don't need started about 20 years ago, luckily in lack of room it didn't get toobad but now, oh can't think about , it's too painful, and now the internet thing too, I'm lost. Surely some doctors are working to find out some antidote for this, I have two closets full of fabrics, they are color coded at the moment, tomorrow they might be season coded, my foremost interest in fabrics is probably color(got designer colorpencils many hundreds). My daughter hates fabrics she'd rather carve wood, she drawing extremely well and try to encourage her with that. She can draw anything, I only like to draw clothes. I can't believe admitting this, is it part of the healing process???

Gosh, Marita, you sound like a charming lady to ME! :D  We're all 'holics here.  Like the idea of a movie though.  Wouldn't it be hysterical?

Maggie, I sure hope I get my swatches from fashion fabrics club soon.  

We just got a package which took over two weeks to deliver and we just got Father's day catalogs last week.  Sounds like there is more mail than room on the plane, as things haven't been this backed up since Christmas.  

Meanwhile I think I am actually two swatch sets behind right now.  It's nice to be able to 'preview' on line though!  :D  

What swatch numbers right now are you admiring the most?
