    It's an addiction, no cure for it. Just continue to play with your fabric, it brings you pleasure and hurts no one. :lol:

    I know right? I go visit my fabric a lot. Then I go do something else without sewing a stitch! :D

    I thought it was therapy for whatever ails you.

    If I spent more time sewing and less digging throught ,folding, refolding, sorting , looking through piles of scraps that I love the most...... I would turn out lots mor finishes. I just killed two hours and had no idea it was that long!

    I think some of you have been watching me at my house, I will wheel my plastic tall bins in the living room and play with my fabric and never get anything done. I was going to ask my dr. about this. I thought maybe i needed a pill, but if you all think it is ok than I won't ask. Blessings, Jackie

    I think we all have that addiction. It's fun to go through your fabric. I'm always finding fabrics I didn't even know I had.

    I was just talking about this very issue with my best friend. I have different fabrics & when I am looking or touching, I need to take it to the LQS & get fabrics that will match it. Of course I have no idea of what I am going to make but at least I have the matching fabric!!
