A tabloid headline, for sure! Right? Actually, it’s just that I have finally realized that deep down, I don’t like using up any of my fabric because I’m in love with color and never want to be completely done with any piece of fabric. If I cut it up, sew it up, use it up, then it’s gone and I don’t get to admire it anymore. So…what do I do?
I was piecing a quilt back today and I almost put a beautiful piece of fabric back on the shelf rather than cut into it! I contemplated buying more fabric rather than using up that piece. And it’s a quilt that I’m keeping for myself. How silly of me! That’s how I became a fabric hoarder.
I’m on a mission to do better. I’ve bought fat quarters or small yardage for years, trying to reduce my stash. That only means I end up buying more ’cause I never have a big piece when I need it!
My goal is to use enough fabric to completely empty 2 shelves of the stash…because I just bought all that wool and I need the space, badly!
This hoarder has a problem…I’m also determined to work on solving it!
