    You realize, I hope, that once you start down this path, you will never be the same...suddenly, every piece of fabric becomes a way to build your stash.....the "new" clothes you see hanging in the stores, the forays into the local thrift stores to see if you can add something to your stash, the sudden screech of your tires to stop at a garage sale.."maybe they will have something I can add to my stash"

    You reach a point where you no longer have any ideas in mind for a piece a fabric you purchase...you just like it and want to add it to the "stash"!!

    Or you decide you don't own enough solids, enough blues, enough reds, etc.......and on into infinity!!!

    ok, you've been warned...now, go get some more!!!!

    Maybe they should have a reality show called 'Fabric Hoarders'. And I can't say anything because I was at my mom's last night - she dabbles in quilting but really doesn't like it - sent me home with a bag of scraps, ends and yards which I spent an hour cackling over and sorting and categorizing by color and smoothing and patting and saying to my husband '.....and this color will be PERFECT for this project....' at which point he was firmly convinced that I had really lost my mind......

    I remember that design. It would be beautiful in blues.

    We all have our vices! This is one of mine. When I enter a fabric store it is like a trip to Disneyland. I start off on the small rides, like Dumbo the flying Elephant, progress to the Matterhorn for the plunge, take a ride on Mr. Toad's Wild ride, then end up here on QB for "It's a small World". :lol:

    So good to see your post, was wondering what you have been up to. I'm sure with your artistic flare the blue quilt will be sensational. But seriously...only $35...My husband would love it if I would say...only $35 today! This stash building is inciduous stuff, pretty soon you'll have a piece of fabric that's "just too pretty to cut" and then you are truly doomed to stash building! Doomed in a good way! LOL

    I see exactly where the problem is. When BF, SO, or DH/DW "takes" a quilter to the LQS, he/she is supposed to pay. That's like asking you out to dinner then making you pay for your own meal. Do you want us to have a talk with him dear? Smilessssssssssss.....

    I didn't bring that much spending cash on me...and before the quilt shop we had hit a Best Buy to look at music. Soooooooooooo.

    Well, he did pay for the gas for the 2 hour drive up here and the hotel room for the 2 days he was up here. That alone was over $100.

    Oh my goodness!!! You really make me look awful :oops: A quilt shop was going out of business and I bought fabric for $2.67/yard. When I left, my credit card had an additional $2,000 on it and my car was stuffed. I do believe that I have all the material I will need for my quilting life :thumbup:
