Sunday, December 30, 2007 and fabric...ugh

Reminder: I will be drawing a winner for the mini-quilt on January 1, 2008. Post a comment by midnight 12/31/07 for a chance to win it. :)

Late this past summer, I began an unplanned but much needed diet. Health issues forced this on me, and without them I probably would still be eating what ever I want whenever I wanted to. However, since I have been following my new diet, I have seen many changes, pretty much all positive, in my life.
This brought me to thinking about ways to further improve other aspects of my life. And one that came to mind almost immediately is my sewing/quilting habits. They are, quite honestly, as bad as my former eating habits. I quilt what I want, when I want to. Some things get finished right away, many more get tossed aside when something new sparks my interest. And I have a tendency to buy fabric without having any idea when/if I will use it. As a result, my sewing room is packed full of fabric and unfinished projects. It is always a mess!
So, I have decided that it is time to put myself on a fabric diet now too. I am going to attempt to finish up the majority of projects I have already begun within the coming year. And I will also try not to buy any new fabric unless I need it to complete a specific project. Am I looking forward to this? Heck no! I am breaking out in a sweat just thinking about it. But, I am hoping that this will lead to some positive outcomes, much like the food diet has. I have posted a reminder badge on my blog. Hanne made it and offered to share.
Care/dare to join me?
