any fabric, new or otherwise.
This doesn't mean that I have done much using up of the stash, however. No real sewing going on lately--I have been wiring up my crafty bouquet instead. I wish I were sewing.
It seems that I have WIPs laying about in all sorts of places, taunting me with the possibility of adding a stitch here or there.
What I have done, and it feels like cheating on the Fabric Diet, is buy notions.

To my credit, I have not abandoned all my old WIPs and UFOs to take up with the latest fling.

The idea is still to use up fabric from my stash--even when it comes time to start a new project.
Linking up with the monthly check-in for Fabriholics Anonymous. Gotta give some love to those deprived of new fabrics...
