I may not have been hanging around The Slacker for awhile, but I have been getting out and about.
Last week (was it last week? I cant remember now) my local meetup mothers group had a meet up at the State Library where there was a fabric and craft swap market (there was also some baby reading and rhymes thing that we went to first, but all I can really remember was the heaven to come). Holy moly it was fantastic.
I coulda spent every cent I had there. It was heartwarming to know I am not the only one who obsessively collects and DOES NOT USE craft materials. They were selling their lovingly hoarded bits and bobs at insane amounts, $3 or $5 for a few metres of material. I was seriously in sewing heaven.
Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of the fabric-a-brac, I was too busy running around avoiding my children’s entreaties for attention/food/milk/home and rummaging through the masses of amazing material.
I actually managed to restrict myself to spending only $25. which was unbelievably hard, but now I regret not getting more. Isn’t that the way? Somehow everything I did get turned out to be pinks and reds though. Wonder what thats about?
It is almost all already button-holed for projects. I wonder if they will get done or if they will simply join my own lovingly hoarded yet untouched cupboard of pretties? Either way, THERE IS NO WAY I am going to sell them at the next Fabric-a-brac. Please PLEASE let there be a next one!
