    I probably have as many as I have fabric.
    Really have no clue.
    I'm trying to get them all organized into a book, but have failed miserably.

    Never counted, but just off the top of my head I would say enough to keep busy until I am around 900 or maybe 950 yrs old :roll:

    I have a lot of books, more in a storage unit. I also have a large folder on my computer full of patterns. I should really get them organized, at least by piecing method, and burn to disks.

    4 jackets full. I just bought a scanner and am in the process of scanning in the pictures of the ones I like then printing 15 at a time on one sheet of paper. That way I just have a few pages to look at for something to quilt and I wrote the mag, date and page # by each picture.
    Still have no idea how to use the scanner for other things and they dont give step by step instructions on how to use it.

    One tall 3-shelves of fabrics and two large plastic storages boxes of
    quilting and sewing miscellaneous. Too much for a very small area :!:

    I have 5 large storage bins full of patterns. I used to get the patterns from the big stores when they got the new ones in. They would just throw them away, so I asked for them. LOL I will never use them all in this lifetime. But I like to share, so I usually give some away.

    Let's not even get me started on the books, magazines, and printouts. LOL
    I have 4 rooms of books, and mags. I have 8 large binders full of printouts, and still printing. LOL

    Thank you, Grandma Cindy. I bought a charm pack and made that table runner... there were enough to make two table runners!! The other one just has the five inch blocks sewn together - a bit smaller than this one.

    I recently purchased a 250GB external harddrive!! Its PERFECT for stashing online patterns!!!

    I have lost count of all the patterns, books, magazines I have. I will never get to do all the things I want to do. But hey I strive!! And I know I won't stop downloading and buying more patterns!! hey you never know!!! As my mother loves to threaten me with (as she smilles that evil grin), I plan to live to at least 120 years old!! LOL ahhh but I love her!!! She is a quilter too!

    I like your view!!! hmmm I'm 36 years old now.. I have a long time til I retire.. so I have lots of time to keep adding to the pattern and fabric stash.. Once retirement come, I probably won't have as much money, so by having a room full of stash I'll be prepared!! LOL
