I have a terrible habit of buying fabrics. Every time I visit one of these fabric stores,I instantly think of buying a piece or pieces to make an outfit for myself. I cannot qualify to be a seamstress, I am not even passionate about sewing,still I have a tremendous desire to buy.
I bought two pieces a few years ago to make a dress for myself,it didn’t happen.I am thinking of having a proper place to do the job. So far I am not sure which room in the house will be perfect. As I could not decide,the pieces of fabric are lying folded hoping to take some kind of useful shape for me.
Couple of days ago I went to the fabric store with my daughter.She was looking for a pattern and material for a ‘Halloween’ costume. I looked around,saw some beautiful material for a Saree. While deciding which one will be perfect, I could hear a voice telling me,’Ranu you have new ones you haven’t yet worn,what makes you think you will wear this one’.I listened to the voice and stopped looking. Will I hear the voice again ,when I am itching to buy? I sincerely doubt.
The only way to break this habit is never to go to the fabric store,this is what I think.What do you think?
