Wow, ya know I have some fabric. I kept most of it in totes since the move here and only new fabric went into the cabinets. I still have one of those plastic three drawers full of crazy quilt fabric.. brocades, velvets, and the like. I also pulled all the bolts out of the closet where before I couldn’t get to them. The window has a seat but since I can’t get to it that is the new home for all the bolts of fabric. Lolita (my Doxie) may argue when I take that quilt down as she likes to sit there and stare out the window looking for cats.I put the quilt up for winter.. and it’s getting warm now.
Which brings me to my question of the day… How much is too much fabric? Is there such a thing? DH was in here putting the shelves up when I was unearthing my stash and putting it in the cabinets. He has now seen all three cabinets full plus all the bolts. Can I rationally tell him I need more?
Until now I thought of those women with fifty pairs of shoes as extreme, obsessed even. I’m starting to think maybe they aren’t… I got a catalog yesterday of new fabric lines and man, I really want some of them. There are some designers that I could just put in a standing order for their new lines each year. And then there are the sales.. those just kill me! I really have a hard time resisting a sale.
I don’t think I’ve crossed over from building a stash to hoarding. Though it may be time for my twin quilt challenge. How many twin quilts can you make without buying any fabric… last time I made seven including backing fabric.. I might be able to make more than that now…
