My Fabric Fetish

When I reassesed my sewing room early this morning, I realized that my habit needs a little bit of controlling. It's not news that I love fabrics and I have been a constant gatherer for many years already. I just love fabrics especially natural cotton and linen. I used to sell fabrics too but decided to stop and focus more on creating/sewing. However, since I work fulltime, I can't sew/create fast enough to deplete my stash, so now the fabrics are taking up space. I mean they are everywhere!!

Here, bursting in the closet (I don't even have time to refold and organize 'em).
Peeking from inside here in the WIP bucket.
Some more in this box.
In drawers down here.

And more boxes up there!
And many more under the table and behind the door in rolls!!
Hmmm...what do I do? I might destash one day (or perhaps not! I love 'em all **hoard,hoard** :P)
Okay I got it!
An atonement.
I'll be having my first fabric giveaway soon and share some love with all you lovely readers.
Check back often ya? **Hugs!**
