I am trying really, really hard not to keep purchasing any more fabric or sewing patterns. Obviously I have absolutely no control what so ever when it comes to purchasing these things!Last Friday I had myself booked in for a remedial massage to get the tension out of my upper back, neck and shoulders. To make it more affordable I go to a training academy where the students are well supervised and nearing the end of their training. Instead of paying $80 – $100, I only pay $30 for an hour. Money well spent.
Anyway getting back to the fabric purchase! Around the corner from the academy is one of my most favourite fabric stores. “The Fabric Store”. I always find it can be a little hit and miss for me when I go there. This time however was definitely a HIT!
As yet I have no real plans what I’m going to make from these lovely fabrics. Sometimes that can be the fun bit trying to match them with a pattern.
On my way home I planned on some grocery shopping. My naughty car took a detour into Spotlight and look what I bought here…
I couldn’t resist the patterns. I never pay full price for dressmaking patterns and Simplicity were three patterns for $12. I picked up a metre of this very pretty fabric and for this one I’ll be making a top from one of my new Simplicity patterns for summer.
I think during the next school holidays (only one week to go!) I might be spending some time with my sewing machine.
Do you find it difficult to resist adding to your craft addictions too?
