Do you know, this swap has totally inspired me to start using up some of my favourite fabrics in my stash.
I was going through them all going, 'no, I simply CAN'T offer this on my list, I love it too much and I want it all' (LOL) but then I got to thinking if I love it so much why have I not used ANY of it in the 4-8 years I have had it! It just seemed so stupid, so I added some (some
) to my list to share and the others I have actually started to use which is very amazing!
Why collect it to have it folded in a cupboard when it could be surrounding you every day as cushions or pin-cushions or oven-mits or whatever else you can think of
, that was pretty much what I was thinking about when I went through my fabric stash
I hoard my fabrics, and I really need to start more sewing projects. There a couple of fabrics that I absolutely adore, and I think they might very well end up as pictures on my bare walls. Yep, I'm gonna stretch them over a wood frame. That way, I'll get to see them all the time!
I also knit, and my yarn stash is getting a little out of control too
