I was a t the fabric store a couple weeks ago and was talking to the cutting table lady and said something about my stash (which currently is 2 but rubbermaid tubs FILLED pluss 3 drawers) and she looks down her damn nose at me and says "you must be a beginner!" I wanted to shove her scissors up her nose! I mean come on! fabric superiority complex much??

sorry. had to share my stash story (which 90% of the people i hang out with would assume its a different kinda of "stash" lol)


Eek.  What's her problem?!?  There's no need to be uppity about things!  Heck, if I worked at a fabric store, it wouldn't come as a surprise if I had an amazing fabric stash (what with employee discounts and all!).  Hmm...there's a thought! Wink

Oy...we're in trouble.  Not only do we have serious issues with hoarding fabrics, we also have a fabric pimp who is capitalizing on our addictions *grin*  Meet me in the back alley, PinkMafia!  I might have to get me more fabric to curb my addiction till the swap begins!!!


hahahaha

hhmmm...  I wonder how much the air fair would cost for me to come over an check out  PinkMafia's fabric stash?  *knowing that my credit card can't afford that kind of hit*   I love the Japanese prints that she finds.

Well maybe buying fabric I love by the bolt is hoarding. Grin I think I'm in denial. And to think, I'm trying to come up with an excuse to go shopping at Alexander Henry's site! I;ve always thought pimps were kewl!

Yes...as soon as you finish the project...you get to go out and fill that void with more fabrics Wink 

I've tried telling myself the same thing - I'm not allowed to buy more fabric unless I use some of my existing stash.  It just never works! Tongue

Just when I thought I was going to take a break from swapping, I find this one  Grin

I inherited a ton of fabric from my aunt a few years ago and her daughter-in-law just gave me more last month so you'd think I'd have enough  Roll Eyes

Thing is, some of it I won't use because it's not my color or a design I like but maybe someone else will.  It's going to be fun to see what my partner wants!
