I have been working on not buying fabric for two years now. And I think I have done pretty well. But I still seem to have fabric everywhere. And you know my story, don't you. Yes you do.
I have my own fabrics. But my mother needed to move to an Assisted Living Apartment and I took half of her fabrics in with mine. Then my beloved friend Pat dies and leaves her 4 sons all her fabrics. They ship a ton of it to me, and I mingle them in with my fabrics and my mother's.
Then my mother ends up in the nursing home after the fall with end stage Alzheimers. So the rest of her fabrics come to mingle with mine (and hers and Pat's).
So easily half to 2/3s of the fabric in my house is not what I have chosen to purchase. I do like most of it, and am unwilling to dump it all into the fabric auctions at the guilds, but it was still not my choice to puchase most of what I have.
So not only am I fat, but my fabric is fat too. So far this year I am down 22.5 yards even with that huge buying splurge at the 50 and 60% off sale at Fabric Krazy!
