You know what I realised today about this swap and fabric hoarding in general... while I was talking to my boyfriend... well I realised, that fabric hoarding means you gather all this nifty fabric, and that's fine because you use a lot of fabric and there will always be projects in the future that needs fabric. But almost every time you DO get into a project, you will still buy specific fabrics - sometimes because you don't have exactly the right kind at home, but a lot of times it's that you can't use the fancy fabric because another project may come up in the future which would be more worthy. (i.e. you can't just use fabric, that's silly)
And so the fabric remains unused in our storages, waiting for the perfect project. (until we reluctantly let go of them in this swap, only for the promise of other things to hoard which are even more worthy Grin )

If only I'd studied psycology instead of computeristics, I'd write my thesis on hoarding. Smiley You'd all be my test subjects! Mwuhahaha...

I sort of get what you are saying. I do this with yarn a lot. I buy it because it is pretty. Then when I need yarn for a project, I can't use anything in my stash because it is either the wrong color or I don't have enought of it or whatever. Why do I have this need for more and more yarn and fabric Huh Why?

YES! Some fabric is just too great for whatever you think of, and you don't want to use it or mess it up! It stinks sometimes.. Tongue

You've pretty much described my yarn and fabric stash Tongue  About a month ago, I tried to organize my craft room and was appalled to realize that:

1.  My yarn stash just about rivals my fabric stash (and I just picked up knitting last summer...)
2.  I found yarn and fabric that I never knew I had Tongue
3.  I needed to buy more plastic totes to hold the yarn and fabric that was being neglected (i.e. left in their original shopping bags with receipts and all)
4.  I only had 2 knitting WIP and 1 sewing WIP projects, which led me to wonder why oh why am I building this stash?!??

2.  I found yarn and fabric that I never knew I had Tongue

When I started talking to my boyfriend about this topic, I'd just found a scrap from a fabric which I know I have not used nor given away... and I can't find it. It's LOST in my stash. I tried going through every place I can imagine having put it. And it's not like I live in such a big appartment, or would even have had it travel to the bedroom or the kitchen or the bathroom (which makes up more than 1/2 of the entire space avalible)
It was this lovely little FQ. I'm thinking a predator half-yard fabric ate it...

*nods*  Which is why this swap is a good thing - I've swapped for fabrics that i already had a project in mind for, meaning that I get to reduce my stash, and have the right fabric at home Cheesy
