I am addicted

 Hello, my name is Tanya and I am addicted to fabric. I can't stop buying it. Even if I have no use for it. I went 3 times this weekend. I am learning though. And to be fair, I have a ton of ideas so I am sure none will go unused. Here is what I got this weekend.

The wonderful boyfriend has recently paid for me to attend a couple sewing classes. I am in the third class now and we have a new sewing machine on lay-a-way for me. He is super nice and I am way lucky to have him:)
To be fair, I almost did not go yesterday because my lovely sister shown above was coming over to clean my house help me organize everything. This is not very relevant but she thinks I should be on the show Hoarders. I have not seen that show we don't have TV but she thought is was funny enough to share with at least one of her friends on Facebook. All is good though. My sister and my man encouraged me to get out of the house with my bff (who is supposed to share on this blog btw). When I came home 5 hours later my living room and kitchen were super clean.
I would not have gone a second time but the same sister (who I love dearly) wanted me to drop her off somewhere, near JoAnns, and we had 30 minutes before they closed. I managed to find so many cute fabrics. I did have a coupon.
This morning I decided to make some mini wallet thingys that I saw here and I found I needed a pencil. My sister was kind enough to go with me and, well, there was so much to choose from and the sales were really good. And, since I was sewing something I might need more fabric to sew something else..
Here are the wallet things
  There is one more mushroom one but it is already in my purse holding change, since they are too small to hold much else. I must have miss measured or something. Being new to this I will forgive myself. I do like them and I think my sister likes hers.

Last night I was working on these:
The plan is to get them into my brand spankin new Etsy shop this week. I am planning on putting a lot of other awesome things in there too. In case you could not see the above link this is very blatant advertising I am afraid , here is another one: CraftyFraulein

I have been collecting things to do that cool metal stamping for a few months and thought tonight would be the night. I don't know if you can see the picture well enough, I am a terrible photographer with a not so good camera and crappy lighting, but here it is:
 It is my first initial and my man's first initial. The middle is our anniversary and one side says 'love', the other 'wish'. Wish is kinda our thing.

So, that is my confession. Do any of you have a huge stash of something or buy a ton of one thing even if you don't have a use for it?

My fabric is completely out of conrtol!! I just got 14 BOLTS in the mail the other day. Not at all sure what I'm going to do with it. And I don't even want to do the math - 14 bolts X 15 yards/bolt = rather not know. :) Your wallets are cute! And your very lucky to have a sister to clean your house. Send her this way please! :)
