Illusion, By The Bolt

Everyday Witch Tarot ~ 7 of Cups

Illusion. If we have something new will it make us...thinner richer taller? If I purchase new fabric it will surely make my quilts prettier, more interesting, show winners, right?

All that said to say, I quit buying fabric in 2001. In the last few years I've started to run out of some colors. 18 years on the wagon and when I enter a store I'm immediately gripped by the gotta have it, the drug adrenaline, the sick feeling of want. So no judging other quilters, I understand. But I'm betting if I hadn't quit buying in 2001, in all areas of my life, I wouldn't be out here enjoying my three month holiday and beautiful little house on wheels. I'm glad I made the choice but I despair of ever not having that sick want. Because I'm sure my quilts would be better, prettier, show winners, if I just had all new fabric.
7 of Cups, incarnate.

  2. Not a sick want, just a want. It's only sick if you can't stop buying. :)
