Stash Bustin': I Swear

You know, my fabric and yarn buying have really gotten out of control. It's time to do some stash bustin'. Here's the little pledge I came up with for myself:

I, Alicia of Iron-on Maiden, hereby swear not to buy any more fashion fabric or yarn until at least one of the following occurs:
  • I've made 20 garments.
  • Every damn scrap of the fabric I own fits on my Ikea Varde shelves.
  • I've maxed out my 2012 retirement contributions.
  • Rachel Maddow calls to ask me out on a date.

Obviously, if Rachel calls, I'll have to make something special.

The exceptions: Utility fabrics and notions are fair game, as are knitting needles.

So there it is. Anybody care to join me?


  1. Hmmm...I really probably should do this for monetary reasons, I might have to make mine ten garments though...ooh, or if all my stash fits in the one tub under my table...or if I pay a certain amount on my student loans...Definitely worth thinking about!

  2. Wow! You're on your own, baby!
