I have been collecting fabrics for as long as I can remember and one thing that some might say is "don't give her anymore fabric"
I belong to a quilting guild and we trade fabrics once in awhile. One of our members brought a stack of upholstery to one of our trades and no one wanted them. Of course I said "I will take them" you can't let good fabric like that go to waste, right.
I looked at the fabric for a couple of weeks and decided to make some tote bags with it. The next meeting I bought the bags for "show and tell" Well everyone loved the bags and several of the ladies asked me if I wanted some of the fabric that they had cleaned out of their stash. I said yes! Because I am thinking that if they are anything like me they probably was getting rid of one or two pieces at the most. Well they told me to open my trunk and they filled it with bags of fabric. I thought "Oh My, what will Bobby say"
Well I kept all the fabric, I am still making bags and whatever else I can think of. Who can say no to fabric? I sure couldn't.
I used to worry that I won't use up all my fabric before I die. But then I started thinking about how happy I am to have such beautiful fabric to work with. I think I will just continue to create beautiful items and not worry about what someone else will do with it after I am gone.
What a mess!
Now I do know every single piece of fabric I own.
