Craft Rage

...Making a mess of things since 1973

 

I fell off the wagon.

I already had a fairly good-sized stash. I don't know what came over me. It's been a busy month, what with the trip to Mexico (ohhhh, so awesome!) and then all the catch-up work when I returned (ohhhh, so much work!).

The thing is, I am a Fabricland member, so whenever there's a big sale in the offing, I get a call on my cell phone. I normally try to avoid these calls - the last time I picked up, I took home 60 metres (65 yards) of taffeta, not to mention 15 metres of toile and a bunch of other assorted notions and thread.

Only this time, when the call came, it didn't show up on my call display as "Fabricland" - it showed as "OOOOOOO". So of course, not knowing anyone named OOOOOOO, I picked up out of sheer curiousity. Sheer, get it? Ha. Yeah, that wasn't actually funny, I know. I'm just stunned. Humor me.

I bought 51 metres of fabric, eleven Simplicity patterns, nine invisible zippers in a range of colors, a huge amount of thread, a hot-fix applicator and some crystals, and a super fun tote bag that says "Sewing is my bag!" I am so ashamed! And excited!!

I fell off the wagon, and it barely even hurt. And what's more, I'm fighting the yearning to drive into town RIGHT THIS MINUTE and buy more.

I won't though. I swear!

I got sucked in by the FL sale too! I only managed to do 19 m of damage though. I guess I'm just powerless in the face of a sale!

It's probably a really good thing I'm a LONG way from Fabricland (on the other side of the world, lol). I tallied up most of my stash last year and while I don't know the exact total ( I chickened out) it's somewhere over 1000m. That's over a kilometre I could go without touching the ground! Plus, I've bought more since.....

I hear you, Shannon - I can resist any kind of sale but a fabric sale, and I just can't figure out why. In order to buy all that stuff, I had to make three trips, one to each of the two FL's in town, then back to the first store to pick up some fabric I'd actually managed to walk away from the first time. It...called me!

LOL! Keely, that's hilarious! I never thought of it that way! A kilometre of fabric! That's a really fun thought!
