    Ok, I hope I don't get blacklisted - but can you ever have too much fabric? and too many patterns? I have so much fabric and so many ideas - I don't know where to start - its like I can't keep on track - I keep changing my mind. I guess its really a good thing - just wondered if I am the only one.

    I feel that same way... and keep adding to the problem! I think I may have to go on a "fabric and pattern" diet until I get some things made out of what I have purchased...

    Sounds like you are too stressed out. Stress is not good! So send me some of that fabric to make you life stress free!

    Nope I was just thinking about that this morning. I was looking through things and did not know where to start. I am not all the way there but I could see that could happen. I am pretty much done with patterns unless it is a new technique or an applique. With fabrics I am focussing on yardage as I have a good supply of FQ I really want to use. I need backing and border fabric. something that helps me is kitting up fabrics and patterns. Basically going through my stash and making my own kit. I put it, fabric, pattern and all in those clear zippered bags that new sheets come in. Then when the time comes I want to make soemthing I have it at my finger tips and I can chose.

    The first step is realizing you have a problem.....the second step is finding out your friends have the same problem!!!

    I think it is possible to have too much.

    When it is difficult to concentrate, when you can't make decisions, when it's impossible to find what you need, when you have no space to cut or sew without moving stuff-- then it's time to say ENOUGH.

    I'm trying to be more impulsive, but so far it requires a lot of planning.

    I agree 100%. If the thought of going to girl cave stressed me out I would have to say ENOUGH! So far all I hear is my little Bernina calling "Let's Play!".

    I don't think I have too much fabric or patterns, I just have TOO many ideas running around in my head. I just will not live long enough to do them all!

    We are all going to die happy. I have started so many projects. I have lined them up. I have covered my cutting table with totes. I have stuck them back out of site. I have carried them around with the intention of working on them while away from home and then carried them back home. It's no use. Hello, my name is gigi10 and I am an addict.
