I buy fabric when it suits my fancy and then stick it in the sewing room. Lately I've been fantasizing about the wonderful things I can make, but when it comes right down to it, I can't cut the fabric.

I have this irrational fear that I'll ruin the fabric or that my project will look hideous. Like I don't have enough to worry about with two kids.

So, in order to break myself of this habit, I'm going to go lay out my nicest fabric and put the scissors to it. If the worst happens, I'll have a bunch of really pretty potholders.

Ha! You sound like me! I have a closet full of fabric but I'm the same way... whatever I do with it, it won't turn out right, and then I'm out a piece of fabric, hours spent creating, and have nothing to show for it but a stiff neck and shoulders from being hunched over the sewing machine. I wonder if there's a support group for us? :)

I'm trying to get my stuff made before I make any more purchases.

I have a tall cabinet for fabric and notions, but it's not in the sewing room yet because there's no room with the baskets of fabric setting around.
