my collection of upholstery fabrics. Some are small pieces from sample books and some I have a few metres of. Most are floral. All have been acquired from op shops over the past 15 years.
I finally decided on this combination for my new project - yes another project to add to the long list of unfinished projects.
They're not my favourite pieces of fabric, but I still love them - they're green! I find it difficult to use my favourite fabrics, particularly if I don't have much of it.
I hate cutting into them.
It's a fear of making a mistake and wasting them.
It's a feeling of wanting to save my favourites for something special. I never find that special project and they end up being put away in the cupboard. The only enjoyment I get from them is when I pull them out for some more sorting and matching. I need to overcome this problem. My cupboards are overflowing with favourites.
I did also promise to show pics of my finished pincushion.
I hope my swap partner has received this by now,
'cos she knows who she is!
