Empty Wish-List - is it possible???

You absolutely may not believe this but my fabric wish-list is EMPTY!!! There are a few prints that I would like to have from new lines coming out, but nothing I’m saving for really because:


1. I have WAY too much fabric and need to stop buying it!

2. I am broke because I am saving for Sewing Summit (aka paying our family budget back for my plane ticket) :)

Uncanny… I know! No fabric lines to stalk, no wish list to check each month… it is kind of nice tho, I have to say. Every time I get a sale or shop email I am just ignoring and deleting them – no matter how awesome the discount or deal!

Let’s be honest here tho – another reason for the above is because I already purchased all of the lines I want for this fall :) Maybe not as much of each line as I would have liked, but enough and that will have to do.

1. Brrr! – on my desk and waiting to be made into something fabulous!

2. Nursery Versery – A few ½ yards and FQs are on their way to my house – hopefully by this weekend!

3. Perfectly Perched – A FQ bundle and a couple extra FQs are also on their way to my house - love love love!

HOWEVER – it is still crazy that there are no lines between now and the end of the year that I’m dying for. Maybe I need to do more research? Hahaha.
Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of great lines out there and new ones coming out soon – I just don’t have any “must have immediately or I’ll cry!” favorites remaining which is nice because my list was rather long and has taken a lot of time and saving to get through :)

Now if only I could stop obsessing over running shoes (Vibram five fingers – o my gosh I am obsessed) and gear, I’d be set and my budget would be a lot happier. Baby steps… baby steps…

How about you? Any remaining big wish list items for this fall – fabric or otherwise?

… o yea, and by the way, HELLO! I’m sorry I’ve been away so long! Homework and the draw of the great outdoors has kept me away along with a general disinterest in sewing lately. I just want to sun, run, hike, play play play lately :) But hopefully there will be some sewing soon and I have a few older things to show you anyway… more blog posts to come soon, I promise!

Ha, I know all about the saving for Sewing Summit thing, and I think the flight from the UK would have blown your family budget for a year or two ;o) I've saving up spending money for the trip there (I have nearly 3 weeks after travelling round with a friend, who has marked off every quilt shop on the way lol) but I really want some Birds and Bees, Bella, Brr and Perfectly Perched, maybe I can pick them up on the shop hop ;o)

There are a lot of prints I want, but I have no money to spend on them right now! Hoping soon to open an Etsy shop...once I think of a name and take some pictures =D

Good for you :) I wish my wish list was empty because I currently have no money to spend on fabric with the new house ! BUT, I'll still be getting some Out to Sea because if I don't have any, I'll cry :)

It's crazy how our blog is negleted when life becomes busy !

I don't have my heart set on anything right now either. Just trying to sew through some of what I have. So I won't feel as guilty next time I buy something. ha! It's been hard for me to keep up with blogging this summer too. It's been so busy and is just speeding by!

Wahoo! I'm so proud of you. lol. I have lots of lines I still want to buy. But I found out that I have some credit on fabric.com and now I can't decide what to use it on! Funny how that works.

Those finger shoes would be awesome!! Too bad I don't run. ;) lol.
I guess when I switched to google+ it made me a no-reply blogger. I think I fixed it but will you check and let me know? Thanks!! :)
