Must...get...sewing...and...knitting...before...an...explosion...occurs!

I have a confession to make: my fabric stash is out of control. Hehe, as I tried to type that sentence my little finger hit caps lock, making the confession seem even worse: MY FABRIC STASH IS OUT OF CONTROL!

Caps or no caps though, it is. I'm actually having trouble closing the buffet door (what - don't you all keep your stash in a buffet?), so the time has come to take a vow.

Trust me - it's going to hurt me much more than you. I think I'm going to have to stop buying fabric... and... gulp...yarn... until I have worked - nay, slogged - my way through the stash. So if anybody had any plans to go fabric/yarn shopping with me, give me a call sometime in, oh, 2048. I should be through it by then.

  3. There's no such thing as an out of control stash, it's just a stash requiring refolding and squashing!

    I am so with you on this one; just spent a week cleaning up the house for the SIL to come to stay, and I quickly realised how OUT OF CONTROL my fabric stash is!!!
    And that is one beautiful photograph of your gorgeous daughter.

  10. Mine, too. All my neatly-labeled drawers are stuffed full and there's a big pile on the GROUND below them! Aack!
    Good thing April is Stash Bust Month and there are so many great wardrobe refashion and not-buying-new-things challenges out there for inspiration... good luck!
