I have to admit, I have a fabric addiction

And to be honest, I don't want to give any of this up! I really have a craft addiction but in the last year, it has multiplied more than I realized. This morning, the teenage daughter and I spent it folding, and folding, and even more folding of material that has been coming in this past week or was sitting here waiting to be folded from before vacation.

To be honest, I had gotten lazy and quit folding for awhile. Been just stuffing fabric here and there. This is the problem with fabric co-ops, lol. You buy the material then have to wait 3-4 months to get the fabric. Well, I tend to make a weekly (if not more) visit to good ol' Wal~Mart and the fabric there. Not to mention the fact that people that I know mention that they want this or that, so I get material for that and this and then it gets lost in the shuffle and next thing I know.... More fabric is sitting around the workshop waiting to be created into some masterpiece! lol

But really, look at all this material that is STUFFED in my cabinets. When we went to Wal~Mart this afternoon, I priced a pantry cabinet and will talk to Mr. Brown tonight about if I can get it. Word is there is a UPS box in transit to here, not to mention the UPS box that is filling up at my friend's house with my co-op fabric!

An online friend refers to herself as a fabric whore.... Wonder what she would call me?

This is just a few pictures of what still has to be stowed away!

I should take a couple of photos of the yarn I have stashed all over my house. If you're a fabric whore, I'm definitely a yarn whore. LOL

And I thought I was bad....at least your folds are uniform...I have taken to using comic book boards to wrap the fabric around so I can shelve them like books - easier to take in & out...and leaves space on top to stuff more :P
