    What the heck is wrong with me?

    For Christmas my DH gave me a pantry cupboard to store my fabrics, I spent about a week wrapping my stash on boards and organizing it-it looks great when I open the doors and I love that but noticed I was missing some needed coordinating fabrics and found some fabrics that I forgot I had. I spent a few $$ picking up some solids and now I have plenty of fabrics to work with. My intention is to use up a lot of my stash. I have made 2 stash quilts, nothing big tho. And now for the entire month of Feb. I just made small projects and just seem to be making more.

    Why oh why am I not making those stash quilts I am prepared to make?

    When you find the answer to your dilemma, let me know!!! I haven't organized in ages, and I still can't figure out how to get started on using up my stash..

      You mean we're supposed to actually use our stash?!

        Because some fabric is evil
        Even when you have a neat little list for things to do and items to make, it will grab you and not let you go...

        How do I know this?

          I think we can all blame it on the weather. I found that I was quite satisfied doing a bunch of mug rugs, doing some embroidery work and actually wasted some time searching for something I just KNEW I had. (Finally found it after the NEED was gone.)

          it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

              I'm trying. I really am. It just seems like the more I cut into my stash the less it looks like it's been used. What's up with that???

                Lately I've been great at pulling out fabrics but then I haven't really done much with them. I was on a mug mat kick now that it's over I've got a mess of fabric in my sewing room that needs to be cleaned up and put away, sigh........

                  Please lie down on the couch. Comfortable? "Now tell me, why do YOU think you are not making those stash quilts", (Sylvia asks in her best therapist voice).

                      I just made two stash quilts and it doesn't even look like I touched
                      my stash. They are just not as exciting to me.

                          Of course it doesn't help that I keep adding to the stash before I actually do something with what is there already! After all, that clearance fabric at Hobby Lobby might NOT be there tomorrow (yeah, right...)...

                            Well, it gives me a sense of accomplishment (I am not usually very neatly organized) when I open those cabinet doors and I see all that fabric so neatly arranged-----it looks so pretty!
