Yes, I think that I can officially be called a 'Fabric Hoarder'. I have spent the day folding fabric that I have purchased over the past month or so.
There was another stack that was on top of my sewing cabinet. Couldn't piece anything since this was in the way.
So, I have wasted most of this day folding all of this so that I can put it on it's respective color shelf.
See the shelves? After I put up what I could according to color, all of the fabric that you see on the longarm table was still left. I just had to stuff it in where I could get it.
Hoarding fabric? Yep, I really believe that is what I am doing. See the shelving unit on the left of this picture? The two shelves in the middle with the cream/brown/orange/blacks and grays have fabric stacked 2 deep. I haven't seen what is on the back row for at least 6 months. I have also started doing a lot of scrap quilts and for those I use chopped up fat quarters from here:
Then there are the bolts of regular fabric and a few of the wide backs that I keep for customer quilts:
Then there are the other bolts of college fabrics and wide backs that I keep under the dining room table in the red wagon:
One box contains my Baltimore blocks that I have not touched in 5 years. Then there are the Dear Jane blocks that have not seen daylight in 2 years. Of course there are the Block of the Months that I have not even opened. MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, just when I thought I had confessed to all............................. I spotted this stack on a chair in the corner of the dining room:
Woe is Me. I will NEVER use all of this fabric, but, I just have such a hard time giving it away. I have given bolts and large numbers of yardage to the various guilds that I belong to, but, I still have more that I should have. I am not saying that I feel guilty about my stash, but, if I were to die tomorrow, what a mess this would be. What can I say, I just LOVE fabric!!
Soooooooooooo if all of this makes me a 'Fabric Hoarder', so be it.
Do you hoard fabric? Fun isn't it?
