Oh Yea...


I forgot to tell you...I'm not allowed to buy any more fabric. *sniff sniff*

See, after seeing my stash photos, my friend Kristin decided to get to work on her yarn stash. Let me tell you about Kristin ~ she is amazinly talented. Just take a look at her etsy store. Its amazing. I own several Kristin originals, and I love them all. This woman can just look at an object and a few minutes later she has made an exact replica out of yarn. Its awe inspiring (look for some of her creations to show up here...just as soon as I get my sewing machine back).

Anyway, we got to talking and realized that we were both drowning in our addictions. Me: fabric. Kristin: yarn. So we challenged ourselves. Neither of us will buy any fabric/yarn until June 1st (unless its for a custom order ~ which I dont' really have to worry about....). On June 1st if we've both made it she will buy me a yard of my choice of fabric and I'll buy her a skein of her choice. Deal? Deal.

And then we're going to start all over again. Because, lets be honest, two months really isn't going to put a dent in either stash now, is it?

Great that you have someone to "diet" with. LOL Best of luck in the next 2 months.

Good luck! I'm a new quilter and have been knitting for just a year (I own less than 60 skeins) so I haven't gotten to the point yet where I "need to stop". Looking forward to seeing what you're going to pull out of your stash!

Ugh, I totally need to do this too. My sad confession - I don't have time to sew, so I buy fabric instead to get my fix. Not very smart. Must sew instead of shop!! Hope your "diet" is going well!
