Fabric Fast

The Fabric Fast Rules

Let’s be honest, I can rationalize my way into or out of basically anything. Which means, if I don’t have clear goals and rules I will worm my way out of this fast as soon as this gets hard and pretend I was successful.

So here is the big rule:

1. No money spent on quilting stuff from May 8th, 2018 to January 1, 2019

I’m already asking myself if amazon points and gift cards I didn’t pay for count as money…I’m going with “yes” for now…see what I mean about worming my way out?

Exceptions:

1. I am free to accept fabric/quilty stuff as gifts (because Christmas and my wedding anniversary are included in that time)

2. Day to day maintenance stuff life needles, thread, rotary blades, etc. are fair game

Goals:

1. Keep quilting as an act of mindfulness and creativity which adds beauty to my life

2. Discover how much quilting I can reasonably fit into my life at this age/stage

3. Focus my attention on what I have vs what I see. (that seems like a more inspiring way to say “sew from my stash”)

4. Find my voice as a maker and writer rather than trying to be like the people I admire

5. Do something about my growing pile of WIPs.

  1. I am following your blog with interest. I have been finding myself starting to buy fabric without a project in mind. This can quickly get out of hand. I did a fabric fast for the month of April and am feeling a bit more centered but feel I have more to learn. Looking forward to seeing how your journey goes.

    1. I’m so glad to hear that I’m not the only one who needed to do this! Congratulations on going a whole month that must have been hard work!!!

  2. I loves me a good Passion Project, and super smart to put some boundaries on that bad boy because restrictions are what help creativity to thrive. Can’t wait to follow along on your journey!
