Don’t they look pretty? I cracked up at Krommama’s response to me posting this picture on Flickr.
“it’s like a buffet! i’ll have a scoop of each please!”
Only sewing junkies have this type of response to bits of fabric. Sometimes I sit and stare. I even go so far as to hesitate actually using certain fabrics, because, GASP…than it will be gone! Silly I know.
I’ve joined the Cottage Quilting Bee and thought that using scraps would be fun. So I started sorting out the wee bits and those are going to this crafty lady. This is the left stash.
Now that I have the fabric all sorted out, I have to sort out what I want everyone to quilt. The way I work, this will surely give my brain something fun to think about when I should be sleeping.
I’m thinking monochromatic. For now I’ll enjoy the view.
When my boyfriend asks me what I’m gonna do with the fabrics I buy I tell him… “nothing. it’s enough to just treasure them!”. So I know how you feel 🙂

Very pretty! I love her response 🙂
thanks for the link! i find it hard sometimes to use fabric that i love. like i’m mourning it or something. but if i’m using it for someone in our home. then i think “i’ll get to see it everyday instead of it being stuck in my fabric bin”.
Oh I am SO the exact same way thinking “but if I use it … it will be gone!!!” I’m crazy that way!
Thanks for the link and yes the look pretty!

Why are we all like that??? We should start a group on flickr for people who are afraid to use their fabrics because then it would be gone!!! It would be so funny.
