Fabric buying moratorium == FAIL.

So much for that idea. For all my good intentions I caved in when a girlfriend suggested that we could go halves in postage for a fabric order. I'd planned to purchase 2-3 charm packs. $30+post. HA! I probably should have taken it as a sign when Quiltjane was out of stock of "Good Fortune by Kate Spain" charm packs, and was one charm pack short on "Ruby by Bonnie & Camille" for what I wanted to do... I should have closed my browser window and walked away. But no, not me!

Not only did I binge at Quiltjane's Want it, Need it, Quilt! but I also splurged on a F8 bundle of "Panier De Fleurs by French General" and a charm pack of "Buttercup by Fig Tree & Co" at Samelia's Mum's Fabric Buzz. And incase you thought that was the end of my spree, I also ordered myself a Curve Master  Presser Foot from Material Girls Down Under!

So here are some of the things that Mr Postman will be bringing me next week:

American Banner Rose Layer Cake, Minick & Simpson for Moda
Prairie Paisley II Layer Cake, Minick & Simpson for Moda
Panier de Fleurs F8 Bundle, French General for Moda
Does anyone else notice a colour theme emerging here??? 
Buttercup Charm Pack, Fig Tree & Co for Moda


And now I'm imposing a TOTAL FABRIC BUYING BAN for the rest of 2011.

  1. I have the curve master presser foot! I think you will love it. I even use mine for regular sewing because it makes getting a scant 1/4" very easy.

  2. Oh! Pretty. It's so hard to be good and so great to be bad! But, it's already November, so you stand a good chance not buying anymore fabric!!
    And the Curvemaster is worth every penny! I never pin curves anymore!!
    Thanks for linking @ This Week.

  3. I need to do a fabric ban too! I have given up for this year and am going to start my diet in January - after The Lorax comes out. I'm down under too. Join us on Quilt Club Australia on facebook if you like!
