    Default Here I am trying to downsize & what do I see on CL?

    Yep, fabric fabric & yes more fabric! Plus a roomful of quilting/sewing related stuff...lace,buttons, a pleater, thread you name it she's got it. It's an estate sale near me but doesn't start until Saturday @ 9:30. Do you think they'd mind if I parked in the driveway until then? OMG, there's BINS of fabric! Please talk me off the edge of the cliff. I don't have any more room plus I'll have to get my DH to help load said bins. Did I mention there's bins of fabric? Am I drooling..definitely jonesing a bit.

    Okay, I'm feeling a little better. I think.

    p.s. It's a sure bet my enabler hubby would go with me but I'm hoping he'll talk me off the ledge. Maybe.

    Enabler here, think of all you will be doing to help the economy recover. It is your duty as a patriotic American to buy more fabric and other quilting related stuff.

    I'm no help either.......I actually looked under your screen name to see where you were from..........hoping it was close to my area.

    If you can't talk yourself out of it........maybe you could part with some of your own fabric that you don't like anymore.......to make room for the new loot!

    hmmm, my sister lives in Sandy Springs GA, is that close? Maybe I can send her to help you, to help that other family, lighten their load of fabric, that way the burden will not fall all on your shoulders.

    Oh crud, I'm not much help in talking you out of it.

    I hereby declare that we need to start a new support group "FA" a.k.a. Fabriholic's Anonymous

    And I nominate GeeGee as our 1st president.

    no help here. But you've given me some ideas. I just finished my first piece that is 100% from stash. Even though it was just a wall hanging, that surely means I can buy new, right?

    Who can bypass a good estate sale?! Don't miss a good opportunity for some good bargains.

    If dh says no you can pack it up and ship it to Wisconsin, I'll pay you back. Sounds too good to pass up. If you don't go for it you will be kicking yourself!
