Here’s your prompt:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fab.” Use it as a word or find a word beginning with “fab.” As always, use any way you’d like. Have fun!
Here’s the rules from Linda Hill:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!

Over my adult lifetime I have accumulated tons of fabric. When I was a teen and young adult I sewed a lot. When I was in a manic phase I would turn out outfit after outfit. Between all the short shorts and micro mini skirts and the little tops for summer, they took up such little pieces of fabric and I could make outfits to last a month or more and not wear the same thing twice. I also had fancier fabrics that I made suits from. A jacket with matching pants and skirt. I had to lengthen my mini skirts though because I started a job and they considered them too short for business.
Once the kids came along I tried to sew, but who has time with 2 kids under 2 years of age. Then I lost interest. I carried boxes of fabric around from move to move and kept on buying it even though I wasn’t sewing anymore.
I was going to start quilting so I starting buying more and more smaller pieces of fabric and remnants were perfect for that. Problem is I never made a single quilt.
One day I said forget it, I am not going to sew again and I offered all the fabric on www.freecycle.org and it went fast too.
So as fate would have it, now I have that feeling that I want to sew again. I am not going to start accumulating fabric though. I know better, I hope! When I am manic I get grandiose feelings and it is bad news if I decide to act on them usually. I have to remind myself that I am not really wanting to sew again, the feeling will pass.
