Sewing Marathon

Wow, I did a lot of sewing this weekend. The Funky Finds Spring Fling is 12 days away and I’m sewing like mad to increase my inventory. I sewed so much that I started doing stupid things like cutting an extra half inch of the edge of a pillow. Grrr!

I took a little break on Saturday afternoon for a knitting class at the Shabby Sheep (could that name be any cuter). The shop is so charming and everyone is super friendly. If you knit or crochet and you live in DFW, I highly recommend you check them out.

for posterity

I also organized my fabric this weekend because the chaos was overwhelming and I noticed something…Mainly, I have no purple fabric, very little yellow, and an insane amount of green. (The green stack doesn’t look too big in the photo, but two of my white bins are filled with green FQs.) Seems like time for a little fabric diet – I’m going to try to stay away from the same colors I always choose and fill in those voids in my collection. I tend to buy fabric pretty randomly, mostly just choosing prints I love and rarely planning ahead when it comes to coordinates. Any recommendations for must-have yellows and purples?
