Lately, I’ve been thinking about my stash a lot. I’m not the only one. I’ve seen a lot of blogger’s take the Fabriholic’s Pledge. As near as I can figure it, Jess started the FAA with her post here.
Jess posted a photo of her, ahem, stash as evidence that she needs to go on a fabric “diet.” Oh boy, I would love to have my stash fit in one bookshelf!
In fact, I’d love to have my stash fit in one picture!!
And let’s not even get started on the laces, ribbons, and beads!
I was tempted to take the pledge to not purchase any new fabric this year, but then Reality raised it’s charming little head and, er, laughed at me! We all know there’s no way I can NOT buy fabric for six months. But, I do need to get a handle on this problem.
So, I’m thinking of doing an experiment. Let’s see how long I can go without buying any fabric, and just shop my stash for whatever projects I do this year. Of course, I’m thinking of excuses already . . . Block-of-the-Month kits shouldn’t count . . . I have to order the Hoffman Challenge fabric . . . and so on. Maybe the experiment should also include how creative my excuses can be!
What do you think? Is there any hope for me? Maybe we can set up a pool and take bets!
P.S. Full Disclosure: I had this post ready a couple days ago, but remembered I needed a backing for a quilt. Soooo, this post got held until after I bought fabric!
