    A quote from Sue Hausmann:
    “Most people call their fabric “stashes” or “stash,” but I call it my collection because collections are supposed to be enjoyed,” she said. “And you don’t have to do anything with your collection. You don’t know stamp collectors who lick stamps and put them on envelopes. You don’t know spoon collectors who stir coffee with their spoons. Rarely do I find a pattern worthy of something in the collection. Usually, if I want to sew, I have to go buy new fabric.”
    My daughter saw this on a craft blog she frequents and thought I would enjoy this. I think it is a darn good theory or explanation for why we do what we do with fabric.
    Maybe this will be my new motto!

    I have often told friends and family that I collect fabric and only use it for a project if absolutely necessary.

    I'll call mine a collection. Or maybe my retirement "fund".
