Self control…

I have none.

And some extra’s I needed. Ha. Maybe this next year I will work on the self control thing. But until then I sure love all of these fabrics and love that I have no plans for any of them except to stare at them. :) Happy New Year and be safe tonight wherever you are!

Well, you have two days until "next year" to decide whether or not it will be year of self control ;)

Lois Grebowski said...

hahahahhahaha... next year... go shopping for more tomorrow...LOL!

Anna said...

love the fabric, at least I know I'm not the only one who feels like they've lost control when buying fabric. :) Happy New Year!

Hee hee hee! I love that I'm not the only one who buys fabric with absolutely no plans for it other than to stare at it. That made me happy.

Goddess in Progress said...

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who went on a bit of a fabric buying binge this week. :-)

Lovely choices and happy new year!

I have extremely little self control when it comes to fabric. It's quite sad, really. Love your fabric picks though! I'd say they're all necessities... hehe!

Arnden said...

Lovely choices! I too am a random fabric buyer, especially if it is on sale!

Where did you get the last batch of fabrics? I would love some of the stripe and dots.

Leslie said...

this fabric is amazing...self control is overrated

Does any "normal" person ever have self control when it comes to fabric? I think not. :)

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

OMG!!!I think you must be my long lost sister because I have the same genetic hiccup with lack of self control when it comes to buying fabric. I see it. I love it. It materialises in my sewing room.

Love that Meadowsweet. I bought a fat quarter pack of every single piece of the peach colourway recently and had it shipped to me in Australia.

And it's not a lack of self control. It's "planning for future projects"

totally green with envy here!

I LOVE THEM

Leigh said...

Oooh those blue and orange leaf/stripes are gorgeous! What is that?

Care said...

There is a big difference between "needing" fabric and "neeeeeeeeeeeeding" fabric. A HUGE difference. I neeeeeeeeeeeeed fabric quite often -- especially when it is as gorgeous as your picks!!

SoniB said...

Gorgeous. I'm new to this "stashing" business. How do you decide how much to buy?

We´re twin sisters. We must have been set appart at birth.

KarrieLyne said...

I saw the title and the first picture and thought "well that's not so bad". Then I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled...LOL. Beautiful fabrics :)

CJ said...

Well seeing all of the fabric you got sure doesn't help MY self control!!

Self Control? I have zippo!! and unfortunately that is the one gene I passed on to my daughter, now if I could only get the finishing gene we might be okay!

katevet said...

You made me LOL! I, myself, have very little self control regarding certain stuff :) I try to enjoy it!

Debbie in Chico/Sacto said...

Maybe no self control, but fabulous taste!

Sew Create It - Jane said...

Amy said...

Such pretty photos! I have the opposite problem - I get frozen by all the choices and end up not buying ANY! I guess somewhere in the middle would be the best way to go :)

Barb said...

Who can possibly have self control when faced with all those beautiful fabrics. My only chance at self control is to stay away from the quilt shops!

angela said...

Love those fabrics!!! I lost it a bit myself last week....now I need to make sure I USE it :)

Miss Nancy said...

Lovely, lovely fabrics. No wonder self-control went out the window. I especially like the Nicey Jane in the blue with the yellow. My colors.
Happy 2010.

dogloverlaura said...

I am so glad I am not the ONLY ONE with a self control problem when it comes to fabric. Love your choices.

Keriann said...

quilting in my pajamas....you are my new best friend! haha I will forever use your words as quoted "And it's not a lack of self control. It's "planning for future projects""


=) Allison I MUST know where that fishy fabric came from! Not that my 5 month old needs yet another orange and blue fishy blanket but that I can not seem to stop making them!!! I'm seeing an etsy shop full of orange and blue fishies in my near future!!!

Email me where you found that please!!!!!!!

Aunt Spicy said...

Ohhhh, what a fun addition to your stash! I got some of the Nicey Jane yesterday and am in love with it!

Calico Road said...

wow, what cute fabrics! I too will be working on the self control thing this year. :)

Crystal Hendrix said...

Oh so beautiful!! I love them! I made your skirt too! Check it out on my blog.... hendrixville.blogspot.com

live a colorful life said...

I had complete lack of self-control, especially in the month of December--of all months! and your fabric looks eerily similar to mine. I'll try working on self-control in 2010. Seems like a noble thing to do....or not...

Jen said...

I hope you know you are not really helping the rest of us self-control-challenged fabric junkies by posting these tantalizing things. Rude.

Bev said...

We all LOVE your blog. Your pictures are gorgeous and your articles are inspiring. We have added you to our list of Blogs We Love and linked to your blog (where we always have a giveaway going). Have a Happy New Year! Cheery wave from Bev http://44thstreetfabric.blogspot.com

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Yah, no self control here either. I stare, re-stack, pet them and repeat!
Happy New Year Allison!

CitricSugar said...

I wouldn't have had any self-control either. :-)

PS. your 2009 project mosaic is impressive and beautiful.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I need those Kei dots too! I'm also using that stripe vine in the last photo, but in brown and green. Check out a sneak peek on my blog!

Pumpkin Head Baby Co said...
