Stash or no stash? Do you struggle with simplifying your life, yet still want to hoard a stash of fabric, of yarn, of wool, samplers? Or do you find it best to go along and only acquire whatever you need for a particular project?
I am the first to say that I have struggled with this whole fabric stash idea for a looooooooooooong time. I have amassed a LOT of fabric....though not as much as SOME of you out there in blogland! Seeing other quilters' sewing rooms has given me pause...made me feel okay with mine. However, in my ongoing quest to simplify, etc, I admit that I struggle with whether to get rid of the fabric stash and just purchase fabric for each specific quilt, or keep the stash.
Let me say, that I love scrap quilts, and so always justified the stash that way. But as I go along....I feel like a lot of my scrap quilts are all looking the same...or at least have the same look/feel to them...and why wouldn't they???? It's all the SAME STASH! LOL Do you see the dilema? On the other hand, I love having it there so that when inspiration strikes....I can go downstairs and play and pull fabrics on a whim.
So to purge the stash or not? Or maybe just thin it out and add new? What is the answer? Or just select and purchase for each individual quilt, which would definitely insure different looks in quilts.
Your thoughts and comments please???
