    I don't have much of a stash YET. But...IZAquilter I would LOVE to open a closet and see all of those beautiful fabrics that you have stashed.

    Wow, I can remember when my stuff would fit into a rubbermaid container. That was before rubbermaid containers were invented probably! Now I am trying to fit everything into one room!

Bwa ha ha. :shock:
    I love your explaination of the monsters in your closet. Mine has arms and hairy legs too. Sometimes I think I see red beedy eyes staring back at me. Then I just pet them, and they go back to sleep. They are so soft....

    I decided to cut out all of the patterns I have been wanting to make while I am waiting on my renovation to be completed. So now I have about 15 UFO's, cut, bagged and sealed. I got rid of everything that was scraps, FQs etc. If I dont need it for a particular project, I got rid of it!!

    You want me to give inventory of my stash? Well, the closest constructive answer I can give: My stash is pretty darn big. I have all of the above mentioned sizes and all colors. I really don't want to take inventory. Let me live in my dilusionary state of denial as to how much money I actually spent. lol

    Maybe tomorrow I can get in there & move things around to take pics of the shelves I have in there. Like I said, that is vintage fabrics & I think there's 6 shelves (3 on each side of the closet) of the vintage fabric in there. It gets over whelming & it's truely an addiction but I was VERY good on our way home from vacation. I did a quilter's sin, I passed up going to the quilt shops! I was just too tired & I haven't been motivated so I just couldn't make myself stop! So I was VERY good on vacation!
