An extra room has been magically added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it ,it disappears. How do you use it?
I desperately need a sewing room, I was planning to convert one of the rooms upstairs into a sewing room, but could not, why, it’s a long story I rather not write it here.
Since I have an additional room added magically, I’ll use it as my sewing room. The catch is the problem, the restriction of only three items are allowed in it, is a serious problem.
A sewing room needs a sewing machine, this is one item, I need a chair to sit on, it’s number two item. Number three I need a table to put my sewing accessories,like,material,spools of thread , patterns. I think these are the three items I will add on.
I will start sewing the blouse and petticoat fabrics I bought in the winter. I am so thrilled now I can wear my new sari, which I could not because I didn’t have the matching blouse and petticoat!

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?
