Fabric Therapy

Don't judge me.

I know, I totally broke my New Year's resolution about not buying any unneeded fabric. What can I say? How can I explain it? I could say it was because the first two weeks of school are stressful and I needed to have some fabric therapy. Or I could blame it on the big end of summer sale my local quilt shop was having. Or I could say I just wanted their complimentary candy.

I guess any excuse will sound lame, so all I can say, is don't judge me. I'm a quilter. I'm an admitted fabriholic. And I really did need some fabric therapy. There is just something about seeing the colors and textures and letting the ideas and creativity flow over you when in a quilting shop. Even if you don't buy anything, it is a wonderful little experience in eye candy.

Okay, I admit it, I bought something.

Just.... don't judge me!

At least I am being open and honest and without any thoughts of hiding my addiction, sharing the experience. :D

Here is the result of my little trip out:

I have a secret love affair with fat quarters. I don't know why. But these were on sale, and who am I to fight inspiration?

Don't judge me.

This little Moda charm pack charmed me out of a few more dollars. I couldn't help it.

Don't judge me.

I am picturing a couple of nice cuddle quilts from the above pictures. I realized I needed to think about borders, backing, and binding, so here is the rest of the brain storm:

Don't judge me.

Did I break my New Year's resolution? Yes.

Is it the first time? Sadly, no.

Did I spend more than I intended? Uh- huh.

Do I feel guilty? Nope.

Don't judge me.
