    And there is a fine line between stash building and hoarding.

    I thnk it becomes hording when you can't push yourself to cut your fabric. I don't have that problem and love when I can use what I have!

    So I'm no where near hording on fabric - now vintage sewing machine . . . that may be hoarding - don't use them but can't part with them. The other day I walked out to my car at work - and there was a case on the ground next to my front door. Really nice little National machine. Hmmm- it's still in the back of my car.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I like to call it Fabric Collection. Everyone has collections...mine just happens to be fabric. I just rotate the collection pieces a lot. Lol... Oh well. Who cares? We are doing what we love and surrounding ourselves with beauty as we do it. See? Nice visual... Lol...

    Same with vintage sewing machines. Some people collect dolls or art work or whatever...they serve no purpose then to just sit there and be admired and loved by the collector. I don't collect sewing machines but I can certainly see having this collection.

    So I worked on GTSB today but it's not going like I want it! The flower block I made is a tad too large, meaning the point of one petal will be cut off......or I have to rip it and make a new petal. I made some pinwheel blocks, all too small so I just sewed a small border around them to make them to size
    That's what I noticed more often with Kingwell patterns. You really need to sew a scant 1/4" seam otherwise all blocks end up too small.

    But, on a positive note, section 2 is also finished. I'm not very sure about one block though......I'll leave it for now and wait till the whole top is finished. Maybe it can stay in the top.

    Yes, Anael...scant stitching helps with her blocks. I'm sure it's fine. If you recall, I had to sew a mini border around the berry basket after trimming to finished size instead of unfinished. No one even notices it so anything you do will just be absorbed into the design. GTSB is forgiving that way.. Just keep going and if you replace blocks later after all done, oh well...

    Wannabee.....9P are boring to me after awhile...lol...so, you go, girl.....

    I'm putting on the border of snail trail quilt top. It turned out so pretty, I think. Mi'll share when done. However, I was sick of working on it today and decided to play. I had this WH pattern for awhile and decided to make it. Bucket list to do a color wheel for my sewing room...checked that off. Going to quilt and bind tomorrow.. It's 18".

    Love your color wheel. Is it paper pieced? 9 patches are boring. Ask me how I know. Almost done with them. Thankfully.
