    I looked at my stash the other day, I think I disappeared from this life for several days, because my dh could not find me to cook his meals. Is it called hoarding or is a stash a pretty name for hoarding it all? Do the quilting police come in to remove some or most of our stash if we are hoarding it. If your fabric does disappear on occasion, I guess the quilting police (we can blame them) already confiscated some of your stash for evidence. OH MY!!!!!!!!!! lol

    I was thinking of going out shopping at a couple of my LQS's today. However I was sitting here in my sewing room loaded with fabric and I thought about the "hoarding" thing. We had a discussion on "hoarding" at a Bible study a couple weeks ago and maybe I am feeling slightly convicted. DH even said that I could go to the LQS's if I wanted, I must be sick.
    It will pass. I am sure.....

    We have been talking about down sizing. I told DH I would love to have a smaller place now that all the kids are grown. He said "Well you would have to stop buying material first." :shock: :shock: Guess we will just stay in this large house :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thank you, I was about to get a huge guilt complex about my fabric. I am a fabric collector with a whole bedroom for my collection.

    Yes, I'm a lucky, lucky girl!!! ;-P

    I prefer to think of it a planning for retirement. When I am older and on a fixed income, look at all the fabric I will already have to keep me busy. I don't think of it as hording at all. My stash is clean and organized.
