What Was I Thinking?

So, after all these attempts to re-use old fabric and be a greener mama, a whole slew of fabric arrived this week. And, by slew I mean slew. It comes from and I WAY overestimated the yardage I needed. AND, I way overestimated my abilities! I just got started and didn't stop once I got on-line.
It started with wanting to make curtains that accomodate the air conditioners that hang in our bedroom windows (Kieran's idea, mind you). But, then I thought about all the other rooms with half-broken curtains and just kept going. Now, I have fabric for curtains in all three bedrooms and the kitchen and stuff to make pillows to match curtains in the office. It all seemed like such a good idea until it arrived. I'm in way over my head.

This isn't even all of it! There is a sage green yet to come. Like I mentioned I think I mostly overestimated my necessary yardage so I will have alot left over. I will need Beth's tote bag tutorial to make up for my mistakes. The other things is, it's so darn expensive when you buy too much upholstery fabric. Silly rookie. And, because it is all so daunting I feel a bit frozen and afraid to start. Argh. Wish me luck.
