is a picture of the sewing room in December of 2007--right before I started my first year of Cold Sheeping. It doesn't accurately show the yarn stash by any means, and I know there were at least a couple fabric tubs not shown here, but let's compare that to the sewing room today:
The yarn bins:
Since I have less than 90 days left before being able to buy things, I have been working on my list. After this little wake-up call, I will definitely be signing on for a second year of buying nothing, but there are some things I genuinely need. If possible, I am going to find some black peachskin to make a wardrobe from the same pattern as the paisley set so I'll have some interchangeable options, a bolt of black cotton fabric, and some heavier cotton to make another gardening dress. But nothing else. This is the challenge. I will enter a fabric store with a list and leave only with the items on that list.
Or, at least, this is the plan................
