hello, my name is leisel. . . and i have an addiction

do you see this?  are any of you this crazy?




that is 28 yards of fabric.  all from one shopping trip.

but it was only $50 for all that. . .  never mind that the $50 was for groceries.  and never mind that i have a whole room FULL of fabric to the point that i can't walk into the room.

and THAT, my friends, is the definition of an addiction.

Angie said...

WOW! That's a lot of fabric. Very pretty too. :) Eating is so highly overated! tee hee! I wish I had a fabric problem like you. I have a box with my stash....

Melissa said...

I had to laugh at this! I am just as bad, I buy fabric and my hubby asks do you need that? I just smile and say it isn't a matter of need, I will be able to use it, someday, in the future, I hope. :) Great buy!

Lynne said...

All I see is a fabulous deal! I guess that explains why I have the same problem :)

I hear you. And I can't go into Costco for the same reason. I leave with "stuff" and no groceries.

Well...you could redeem yourself and sew for charity :)

Lisa said...

It's a good addiction :)

Candee said...

Love it! Yes I have an addiction too.

I can help you out with your addiction, just send some fabric over to my place and problem solved! ;) ......I have a closet full of fabric and I keep buying more too!

Bargains are bargains, and you can always 'pass it on' to a group or person who sews for a charity. I am always on the lookout for super sales ( once bought 25 spools of thread @ 10 cents each) to make things for charity. You can feel good 'cause you saved a lot of money, and 'cause you gave it to a good purpose - double blessing!-D

I just bought about the same amount of fabric for $23. I bought it from the thrift store so I feel compelled to buy when I see a fabric I like that is inexpensive ($1.oo a yard or so).

Do you go with something in mind or just buy whatever fancies you at the moment and figure it out later? I think you have a fabulous addiction!!

Amy said...

Where in Blazes do you find fabric that cheap?

amanda said...

Hot dang, girl. That is rad.

Awesome. Did those by chance come from Hancock's Fabric? If so, I have the pink striped knit, and the black and blue knit also from there. We have a Joann's closing where I live, and was able to score close to $3000.00 (yes that is thousand) dollars worh of patterns, close to 100, for under $15.00, and that included 3 pair of flip flops for my daughter. Where is the extreme couponing show for the sewers/crafters in the world?

Sarah Faith said...

I'd be pretty tempted, too.
I have no self control and I find the only way to stop myself from buying fabric is not to go to a place that sells it. :) lol otherwise, watch out!!

Jeanne said...

HA, I found a BOM this morning that I really like

So I am looking at this thinking HMMMMMM that fabric kit is really CUTE and that THREAD KIT IS REALLY CUTE, now I am sure everyone knows that anyone who has an "Addiction
has at least 9 FQ + the other fabric needed, but I bought the kits anyway, OBTW, I also have tons of PERLE COTTON but those colors were hard to pass up. :)

I have the same addiction, but occassionally I can control it.. then I get the urge again. However, since I now have ababy girl to sew for, my addiction is renewed with a great purpose! :)

marisa said...

I am THAT crazy. I just buy to add to the hoards I already have at home, fold and re-fold, dream about projects and then start all over again.

Jessica at Me Sew Crazy said...

ahh - a woman after my own heart! I have quite the same addiction :)...lol

Nice to meet you, and I am very excited to be playing with you this Season in PR&P!

I remember your Leila & Ben month long changes to the pattern last Season - and thought it was fantastic :)
