How Many Libraries Do You Need?

There is nothing like a good fabric store with luscious fabrics. I love to touch. I love to mix and match, mostly mix. I love to ooh and aah. I love to see.

Today I purchased the following.


The ladies asked "What ya gonna do with this?" To which I replied, "I don't know, I just have to have it before it's gone." Maybe I'll make a bag. You know I can't make a quilt, but a bag is doable.

Then a friend got some of this fabric to make a bag for her and her girls. I love it! It's adorable!


Just so you know, it's three separate bags, not one.

Another thing I LOVE to do is pull the warm, soft fabric from the dryer and fold it. It's so beautiful, so pristine. It's not been cut, I can fold it nicely, and it looks so pretty when it's all stacked. If I had loads of money to spend on everything I would seriously consider a library of folded material, not books. Although that would be hard, I love books almost as much as material. Maybe I'd have two separate libraries. See how beautiful it would be.

But then again, maybe I only need one library. See how the fabric blends beautifully with the books on the shelves.


I know. It's a sickness I have. I just don't know of any fabric detoxing programs readily available in the US. Maybe if someone called Obama he could get a bill for that one rushed right through Congress.

What a great blog Donna. I like the fabric library, but please don't give your mom ideas.

I think we are all beginning to get the fabric problem ourselves. I definitely have the book problem too. I just saw that tree fabric the other day and thought it was pretty.

Sally's right, I had the sickness to begin with and now it's spread to everyone but Krissie. It's only a matter of time. And you're right, it's so pretty it's hard to put away!

I have done well!! I have passed on the Fabric Bug. We do all love the feel and look of new cute fabric. The perfect companion to books in a library. I do think I have a library of fabric in my closet. Whisper even loves to visit the closet. But. she likes my food storage closet as well. We could go crazy buying a little of each bolt of fabric. How fun. Your stash looks very inviting.
