Day 1 will begin today...December 28, 2012.
I knew this day was approaching since I committed to this challenge about a week ago.
My first reaction-"cool" "great" "what a good idea"
My second reaction-" oh no, what if I don't have lining fabric to finish the things I am making!" "I have to buy some fabric before Day 1-just things that I know I will need"
So I went to fabric.com and bought some lining fabrics to match a few pieces of wool that I currently have and then I threw in another piece of wool, just for fun. Whew!
Christmas arrived and I received a pair of Louboutin shoes from my husband, outrageous! Considering that I make all of my clothes, use every scrap, buy fabric on sale, am very practical...this gift was so unbelievable! What was I to do? I had to make sure I had some black fabric to make something to go with those shoes (everything looks great with those shoes, however). So I headed back to fabric.com.
With a coupon and plenty of good prices, I ordered a few pieces of fabric.
Now my stash was even bigger!
Last October, I did the Whole30 challenge. Eating clean for 30 days. The night before I started, I ate plenty of bread, drank some wine and ate my fill of cheese. Since I wouldn't eat them again for 30 days, I just had to do it. Well, I think that same thing just happened with my fabric purchases. After 30 days, I felt fantastic, had better control over my food choices and didn't want cheese anymore. I wonder how 365 days of no fabric purchases will change me. My prediction? I will be more careful about planning my purchases, finishing the project before starting another. Or at the very least, I will have drawers that are easier to open!
