The end result of all of this is total inertia. I don't want to use fabric I like on anything in case either (a) I ruin it; (b) I make something I love that I then stop being able to wear because of weight changes, thus introducing more waste; or (c) I make something and then discover the Mythical Perfect Pattern that I could better have used that fabric for. The potential of the pattern and the fabric starts to get more heavily weighted than actually using it in my head, and then I just don't do anything at all.

I have five days left before I head down to my parent's house for the holidays, although my sewing time today is spoken for, in that I am mid-way through an iPad case for myself that I want to finish. So the question is, cut out this top or not? Argh.
