    Not are really huge problem but a problem just the same. My fabric stash is in real danger.

    My 12 yo daughter has been bit by the quilting bug and is actually using fabric from my stash. She actually made me cut up some of my prettys so she could make bags. She started sewing in August and now asks only a weekly basis to go to LQS or just goes down and picks which ones she wants to use for her current bag project. :shock:

    How does a house deal with 2 fabricholics? I'm not sure my budget will like it, I know its not the end of the world but she wants me to cut my fabric.

    Seriously, her bags are great and she is going to be starting her first lap quilt today.

    She is so pretty and who could resist that proud smile!! She did a very nice job on the bag. I wish my DD's would take an interest in sewing. It would give me an excuse to have an even bigger stash. LOL!!

    All of the above - but I'd say you and your stash are in trouble. :)

    Yep, your stash is in the same amount of danger in your house as my peanut butter cookies are in mine. If you really, really like a particular fabric, I say hide it....

    I do love that she sits in there with me and enjoys this wonderful craft and I will most likely just use this excuse to have a bigger stash. Yesterday she was at LQS and watched the LA'r do her thing for about 15 minutes and then stated as we were paying for our fabric that she knew what she was asking Santa for this year, both the cashier and I started laughing. She is focused on a quilting machine.

    Yep, I think I'm in trouble, but its the good kind.
