We are now one month into my year long fabric fast and I thought it would be nice to update monthly. So how did I do this month? Well, I spent 3 hours in my LQS for an open house where all fabric was 25% off and bought nothing. Mildly impressive but I generally don't buy a lot there anyway. I watched as the skinny bolt sale at Pink Castle fabrics came and went. I went to my big box fabric store a half dozen times looking for thread and bought nothing but thread. And, most impressively, I watched three very tempting instagram destashes roll through my feed without buying a single thread. That, my friends was a super human feat!
I did make a few purchases this month. Thread, as previously mentioned. Some batting. And a handful of fat quarters for a class sample. My class samples must be made from fabric available at my LQS and I had none in my stash. But the day I bought them, I turned them into zipper pouches!
And most of what was left has already been making it's way into my projects. Overall, it wasn't tough to buy nothing this month. Except for the destashes. That was very very hard! And as I gaze upon my stash/scraps, I feel like I could sew for two years without buying very much. We'll see if that sentiment remains come July :)
