365 Things To Smile About Day 28. Happiness at the Fabric Store!

I am what is commonly known as a Fabricaholic!  While spell check may not like the word yet it is slowly making it's way into the English lexicon and is a real thing.  See, a Fabricaholic is a genetic disease that is passed on from mother to daughter and it is ingrained in childhood to not see this as a problem.  In fact, I see it as an opportunity.  An opportunity to create fun and beautiful things.  Some people manage it through making clothes, arts and craft cutesy things, blankets or just about anything!  I personally like to make blankets, tote bags, aprons, placemats and things along those lines.  I did take a sewing class to try to break into clothes and I was OK at it but it turned out to not be my thing:).

Today I went into JoAnn's Fabric to get some material for making rice bags for some friends.  I needed exactly two yards split between two patterns.  Oh the choices!  I haven't been in a fabric store in a while so it was pretty wonderful!!  LOL!  And I have made mental notes for future sewing projects but didn't buy the material yet.  Which is actually quite the accomplishment for a Fabricaholic!  My stash of material is growing but I don't think yet can rival my mother's or grandmother's!  I was so VERY tempted to add some Dr. Who material to it though for a future blanket!

I guess my point is I spent a happy 45 minutes just browsing materials and thinking what I could make with it!  I only walked out with what I went in to get (which, lets face it, is miraculous for any trip to any store!) and left with a smile on my face and ideas brimming in my mind!!!
