My confession...a desperate fabricaholic!

As many of you know I am in the midst of a home renovation project, which requires facing all the things that are filling my home! I keep trying to get rid of unnecessary CLUTTER!

However...ahem... I have become aware of a small or maybe....ummm... large problem? shhh. don't tell anyone let's keep it between you and me.

I seem to have an obsession with fabric, linens and the like. I have been faced with a somewhat large collection of items I am accumulating. First there is my weakness for cozy cottage bedding, quilts and sheets. Not to mention my love of retro inspired aprons, tea towels and hot pads in my kitchen. If that isn't enough....then there is my stack of vintage reproduction tablecloths I adore! I could go on, but this is getting embarrassing! Can you see me blushing? Needless to say I see no hope for me!

Here is my official confession:

Hi... "I am Denise...The Cottage Chick and I am a fabrictextileclothaholic.

The biggest problem is that I am like any other addict. I am gonna tell you I will stop, but as soon as the next wonderful quilt, or plushy pillow strikes my fancy, I will be right back at it. Oops! That probably was the wrong thing to say, huh?

I guess I am now supposed to look within myself and try to figure out the deeper reason lying hidden within me, as to why I have this "obsession". I can't seem to come up with anything other then, I LIKE IT? Oh wait, I LOVE IT! I love surrounding myself with things that inspire me and make me feel happy. I am rejuvenated by color, texture, feel and pattern. All of which is in fabrics!

Whew... so glad I got that off my chest!

I hope you still like me and can accept me as your cottage chick friend! Just keeping it honest you know. What about you? Do you have a pension for something that just seems to call your name?


  1. Yes, I can! Fabric! Lots and lots of fabric that I want to sew into quilts, table runners, place mats, tote bags, and the like. :) You're not alone my Friend! :)

  2. Accept you? Heck I am right along side of you:) I love them too. Gorgeousness, even when it is just folded. It makes me happy,doesn't cost a fortune, and makes my house er barn a home:) Have fun collecting.
