2. Cheap Fabric (I'm not talking about the nice stuff at bargain prices here, although....beware of #3....
3. Fabric that you don't love, but couldn't pass up the bargain. (My nemesis here = garage sales - how much muslin fabric can you stash, anyway???)
4. Books that have one piece of valuable info, but now you need another bookshelf to house them all (this is what libraries are for!)
5. Sewing Machines that feed a growing case of SMAD* (Reminder: Sewing Machines are large. Buttons are small. Collect buttons instead. Or thimbles. Thimbles are cute.) p.s. ignore the SM group shot in my previous post. Do as I say, not as I do....Besides which, Featherweights are small.....
6. Another Sewing Machine Cabinet. See #5. And #3. (Note: I don't CARE that Singer #42 is the most gorgeous SM cab ever made....you only need ONE. Not three.) :(
7. Late-night, tired sewing. See late night post
8. Running back to the store to get the right color thread. Having obscene amounts of thread is a good thing. Collect thread, not sewing machines.
9. Ruining a nice project with sloppy technique. Just practice the technique first! The time spent practicing is time, money, and sanity saved with a project you'll be happy with!
10. Living too safe a life. Interpret this in any way that fits :)

|Can't get enough of #10!|
*SMAD = Sewing Machine Acquisition Disease/Disorder
What are the "Life is Too Short" lessons you've learned? (or are learning.....or think that maybe someday you would like to learn.....)
