Yep, that's it. I have been "stashbusting" since the first of the year. I have only purchased about 6 fat quarters , 2 charm packs and 4 yards of fabric this year. You know, fabric for larger pieces, boarders and unifying fabrics. The photo shows a 73 quart tote and a cube of overflow. The shoe box container has some fabrics and necessities for quilting.
Am I attached to my fabric? Yes. I like fabrics similar to how people like looking a photographs. I am making block exchage blocks of scraps, not new fabrics, and I am finding that I might have a harder time giving away the blocks than in the past when I bought fabric for a specific themed exchange.
I have enough fabric for several quilts and with the economy I don't NEED to buy. Yeah! But it is amazing how fast the fabrics start to stack up. I may not be able to buy alot over the next year but that doesn't matter, I have plenty.
Which reminds me... I have a nice little house I can afford to heat, 2 cars that work so far, food in the cupboard, decent health, family and friends that I have great relationships with.... I am going to not watch or read news for the rest of the week, I am not going to check my 401K and I am going to dwell on the positives of the abundace of what I really have. Even IF I don't have a room dedicated to my fabric stash.
