Confessions of a Seamstress

So last night I came home from work and decided to be productive and start a few projects for our upcoming show. I picked out a few patterns and started in on the hardest part for me -- deciding on the fabric. You know when you go to a specialty fabric store and you find wonderful fabric, expensive, but wonderful and you buy it not knowing yet what to do with it? Well that was Mom and me on our mountain trip in Asheville. We bought great fabric but its been sitting on my shelf looking pretty for a month! Every time I pick it up I think to myself, "No, not this pattern. I should wait to use this for something grand."

Well guess what, that fabric won't ever come to life if I keep putting it back on the shelf. So I decided to get it all down today and start cutting away! Seamstress reasoning of course. If I don't use it up I won't have a good excuse to go fabric shopping again! Who's with me?

  1. Hi, I've done the same thing! It's crazy!!! Sometimes I hit a creative block that is self made....and this was one of those times for me, too. But, like you said, it doesn't come to life by itself. Thanks for sharing and helping me realize what was going on with me as well. I am heading for my beautiful stash of vacation fabrics right now. Be happy, sew all day!
