Controlled Fabric Buying or an Obsession?
Friends were over the other day as I was ironing some fabric I had just washed. It was a red load. I told them that I thought if I got caught up with washing and ironing my new fabrics I would become familiar with them and wouldn't buy the same fabric again. I really enjoy my stash and don't feel a great need to "use" the fabric. Once they were all ironed and folded I tried to find room in the drawers. They all fit pretty well after some creative folding.
I had just finished telling them how I feel I always have pretty good control over my fabric shopping sprees. They didn't seem to agree and hinted that I was obsessed. We had some good laughs over that. So what do you think? Are we obsessed? I know I have lots of fabric. These four drawers are probably less than half of what I have. But I have seen others with far more.
Yes, I know many of us would like to use our stash more often. That is why I wish for all to Sew Long.
