I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Fabricholic


Tis true - I am a fabricholic!!

I would even go as far to say that I have an uncontrollable fetish.


For every meter of fabric I buy to make something, at least another four types end up in my basket - OK, five.

Oh what to do?


To be honest though, it's not a bad 'holic' to have - is it?

I mean, surrounding oneself with gorgeous fabric with some of the best prints from some of the best designers can't be a bad thing - right?



But 'oh' I do feel bad!

I guess the only thing to do now is start sewing - frantically. But then the flip side of that is running out and having to buy more.


Though with all the tempting patterns out there for me to choose from I could never go short - unless the purse pincher - Mr Boo - tells little old me 'NO!' enough is enough, no more Mrs Boo 'you need help!'


I have my charms though so I doubt that will be happening any day - soon.

Know what I mean girlie's? A bat of the eyelashes and a promise to be a very good girl indeed always works - ahuh!


So for now I will just have to resign myself to the embarrassing truth that I have a habit - it's fabric, but boy it's all looking good.


My name's Nina - thanks for listening! - I'm now bowing my head in disgrace.


I bought all of these fabrics from M is for Make in the sale section - though be quick, they are going fast - I should know I've just bought some more - oops!!

ps. I loved that you all thought Mr Boo took the 'Hardcore Cider' picture from yesterday - I would be lying if I said he didn't - you know him so well! - but he actually (yes really) took all the other 'outside' pictures at the Food Festival because I was too shy - aaaaawwwww!

He did say though once he got the hang of it and became more confident people literally started stepping out of his way so he could take a picture.

A new thought for the future and all us shy snapping folk out there - maybe.
