Colorful Creation Possibilities!

While in Columbus, I found a wonderful fabric store in nearby Waynesville,  and went just a little crazy.  Look at these colors...and believe me, they look better in real life.  My mind is bubbling with all the possibilities.
I use mostly wool or wool blend felt like these
to create my Whimsical Woolies.

I am moving toward incorporating
some actual woolie wool.

Still trying to get the nerve up to add some pretty printed cottons into the creations.
(I'm kind of in a polka dot phase
for the time being...seeing spots!)

When I can do that, don't the possibilites become infinite????

Although I have visions of creations using these lovely fabrics, I can't quite envision cutting them, using them and then not having them anymore.  Might be a problem...
Anyone else have such a problem? 
Is this how you become a hoarder?
If so, I'll be a happy hoarder surrounded by beauty.  :-)


  1. I stay completely out of fabric shops. I remember when I was in college, even, walking through House of Fabrics and finding that my palms itched to have every kind of fabric there was - it was the fabric that started the projects, not some pattern or occasion. It's still that way for me. The fabric calls, and I have to think of something to do with it. Color - texture. Too excited all the time. Cupboards full.

  2. That's it! Luckily we don't have any great fabric stores close by...but I am drawn to them magnetically when out of town. Bought another small stash when on the Anniversary Honeymoon.
