busted!


She: "Ready to go?"
He: "Oh. My. God. You have
a lot of fabric."
She: "No, it's not
that bad."
He: "You have
a lot of fabric."
She: "Why do you keep saying that with the crazy look in your eyes?"

He: "I'm stunned, because you're always saying you need to go to the fabric store - like today."

She: [Drat! He's totally right. I knew I shouldn't have laid it all out when he was home, but I had to color coordinate everything, now. Damn OCD.]

She: "Looking at it, you're so right! I'm a mess!" [sniffle, sniffle]

He: "Don't get upset, it's not
that bad."
She: "Oh, I'm so greedy to have it all and I'm such a slow sewer." [I really
don't know how I accumulated so much. It was stored in this cart, which is small!]
He: "You seem to have a lot of green."

She: "And not enough red. Plus,
Denyse Schmidt and Amy Butler have new collections, and Heather Bailey has one on the way."
He: [Good grief, I've seen this before.] Well, can you restrain yourself?”

She: "I’ll try."

He: "Still want to go to the
fabric store?"
She: "Oh ok, if you insist ;}. There’s a new Denyse Schmidt pattern that I’d like to get so I can use up some of my fabric. It’s called “
Single Girl.”
He: “Interesting name – keep it in mind when we’re in the store. Know what I’m saying?”

She: “Yes, dear.”

i laughed out loud at this! i can sooooo relate. i try to keep my hubbie out of my art room as much as possible so he can't see the latest acquisitions from hobby lobby. it's not just the fabric; it's the paper, the rubber stamps, the ink pads, the wire, the beads, the canvasses. some day there may have to be an intervention. smile!

quaint handmade said...

i know what you mean, but i won't participate in any intervention if called upon for you julie! and, i have the same problem with multiple project types. there are worse vices we could have!
