Today I made a bag using two nice fat quarters I had and almost a half yard of fabric I didn't really like (for the lining). When I was finished and only had some small scraps left over, I felt so.. sad  Embarrassed
I also have a stash problem with my cross-stitch supplies.. I have so many patterns and kits and DMC thread and pretty linen fabrics I could stitch until I'm 90.. but I just can't give them away or sell them! I feel so stupid.. since I haven't x-stitched in a year or so. Soon I'll have to move out and I have no idea where I'm going to put all this stuff!!!!!!   Roll Eyes

A bit off topic, but I was thinking about the gallery idea that was thrown around earlier. It seems that a lot of us have the habit of buying (or receiving) beautiful fabric that we have grand plans for which never actually happen. A gallery would totally help motivate me to actually create something out of the fabric I receive.  Thoughts?

I would love to see a gallery of things made from beautiful (or ugly) fabrics.  Now here's the question.  Who's gonna be the first person to make something with their fabric instead of hoarding them?!?  I doubt it'll be me Wink
