    I laughed - while others have said "good for you", what I got out of this was it took 5 years to work thru her stash! Sheesh - it will take me at least that long, too!!!!

    My order of blenders placed on Dec 27 arrived Monday. I will never order fabric online again unless I know the manufacturer's name. Most of the fabrics are okay, but don't have the feel or sheen I like. The one yard with a name on it - Benartex- didn't arrive. I am waiting to hear from the seller.

    I went to an out of town basketball game in a town with a JoAnn's and didn't set foot in the store! That's a start.

    Hmm well mtngrl could fit all my stash on my cutting table to if I put it up to my ironing table stack it really neat, used a stepladder to pile it high enough.oh wait that will not work the ceiling is not high enough I am lost in a sea of fabric.

    My DH is turning his old office into a sewing room for me [ he says I need more room the he does] I can not wait to get organized. Right now my stash is all over the place. I started counting in my head last night while reading this thread how many kits and unfinished projects I have 27 and I am should I missed some. So this year I am going to work on them and try my hardest not to buy more fabric or kits. I have started by taking picture of all the started projects and kits so I can put then in a binder. This way I only have to open it up to see how many I have and what to do next.

    Over Xmas we had friends over and my husband was saying if the house burn down it would cost the most to replace everything in the kitchen. I looked at my friend and we both laugh. He has no clue just how much we quilters have


    Hope you all have a great day

    I caved. I stopped by fabric store tonite and spent $20, but that is all. got a lot for my money though and there is a birthday gift from-it, so maybe I am not too bad. I will try to do better.

    If you need a project to use of your stash check out Stash Buster Scrappy MYSTERY QUILT Mini-train Ride right here on the Board. I jumped aboard the train yesterday - it's not too late to join. This mystery used up 108 four and a half in squares and 60 2.5 by 4.5 rectangles in the first day. I'm only using stash, I promise!!
