i heart fabric

i mean, i really, really love it.

i was so giddy last week when another lovely package arrived from hawthorne threads.

whenever i get a package from them i drop whatever i’m working on and tear into that package immediately.

then i thumb through it, try different pairings, then move immediately to refolding it and stacking it with my other fabric and looking at all the color coordinated loveliness.


there is some amazing new anna maria horner stuff that i can’t wait to cut into.

yep, i’m a dork.

    I love fabric, but have put myself on a fabric buying hiatus. :( I have WAY too much and not enough time for sewing. feeling a little jealous here.

    I love that picture. What a great little spot. If that was in my house, I would sit down with a cup of coffee every morning and just stare at it. Yep, I think that’s how I would start my day.

    The Bible says not to covet… The Bible says not to covet. I’m trying not covet your fabric & office, but I can’t help myself!! Its all so beautiful, can’t wait to see what you create!

    Hahaha…I love Kate’s comment above:) I just ordered some midwest modern martini in mustard to make pillowcases for my master BR remodel we’ll be doing this winter(hopefully). Funny how fabric can make us so happy:)

    You are so not a dork! I can’t believe how much joy and pleasure I get from color, texture, and pattern. It is like they complete me!
    By the way, last week was my first time participating in What I Wore Wednesday. However, I have been sick at home for the last three days, and I believe blogland will rest easier knowing that because of that I will not be participating in it this week – believe me, it is for the good of the people…..

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your stacks of fabric. So colorful. Those stacks would make anyone happy….I would think. :)

  18. 18

    Okay, but a lovely “dork” that does great things with it! The way you feel about fabric and what you do when you get it…is EXACTLY how I feel about my beads! *sigh* Nothing like it. Heavenly.

  19. 19

    I feel the same way about fabric. The fabric you use is always so beautiful! Yellows and blues, my favorite!

  20. 20

    LOL I am the same way! Except my stored fabric isn’t as neat as yous ;)

  21. 21

    you are not alone…. you just described me hehe :)) xx

  22. 22

    if you’re a dork then i’m a dork. i feel the same way! i mean i just seriously swooned over YOUR fabric:)))

  23. 23

    Well, dork is the new cool! I am proud to be a fabric dork with you :)

  24. 24

    I can relate. Completely.

  25. 25

    i know what you mean… can’t wait for the new amy butler line!

    If I had beautiful fabric like that being delivered to my house, I’d be pretty excited too! I’ve actually never bought designer fabric. I’ve never ordered any online. I usually stick with whatever my 40% off coupon can get me at Joanne’s. Seeing all your beautiful fabric sure tempts me to spend a little more . . .

    I love fabric too! My best friend loves her fabric SO MUCH that she will take a few out, pet them, then perfectly refold them just right. Fabric is so fun. Both to look at, and to touch.

  28. 28

    oh wow! i am soo jealous of your fabric stash and organization!!

    Oh my gosh! I LOVE Hawthorne Threads and I do exactly the same thing – my husband laughs at me b/c I will put an order in and then for DAYS afterward I am checking all the doors (we have three) expectantly for the package. He says he always knows knows the outcome because I either mope for hours or act like I won the lottery ! =o) Hawthorn has such lovely fabrics, and they get all the new releases super fast!
