December 1, 2008


Well, here it is December 1st already! Seems time flys when you have projects that you haven't started yet! I know, I know, I've been talking about different things I've got to do for a while... ahem... let's just say that sometimes... I'm all talk! I saw a sign on a church the other day that said "When all is said and done, usually more is said then done!" Yep, that's me! Motivation! That's what I need! And none of the negative type either... you know, like oh, well, just look at the calendar! You have how many gifts you need to make??? Why is it that when I mean well to get things started early it never happens? Lots of questions and not many answers that's for sure!

O.K. after reading Carolyn's and

Kristy's blogs about stashes or at least fabric stockpiles... I dug thru the mess on my idea board and found this: 10 GOOD REASONS FOR BUYING FABRIC!

#1 It insulates the closet where it is kept.

#2 It is less expensive & more fun than psychiatric help.

#3 A sudden increase in the boil weevil population might wipe out the cotton crop for the next ten years! (for those who quilt with cottons)

#4 I'm participating in a contest... the one that dies with the most fabric WINS!

#5 Because I'm worth it!

#6 It's not immoral, illegal, or fattening. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul & makes me feel good.

#7 Buy it now, before your husband retires & goes with you on all your shopping trips.

#8 It helps keep the economy going. It is our patriotic duty to protect the jobs of cotton farmers, textile workers & quilt & fabric shop staff with cute babies & grandchildren.

#9 It keeps the dust off those previously empty spaces like the dining room table or the living room floor.

#10 It keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook to enjoy it. You never have to feed it, burp it, change it, wipe it's nose or walk it!

And if you can think of any others let me know... I'm always ready, willing and able to add to the list!
My family calls my sewing room "Jean's Fabric Store". Which is all fine and dandy... until they want to "buy"... I'm picky when it comes to what they can take and what they can't! Some times it's just easier for them to go to the brick and mortar store. Probably less stress all around too! LoL
Well, it's going on 8 a.m. and I've been up since 4 a.m. so it's time to see about a few other thing! I have gotten 3 loads of laundry washed already! And 2 of them either dried or drying. Now if only my sewing room could get things done in it so quickly!
