    Wink When people keep adding to your stash!!!!!

    I'm going along great, then my BF says,,, "here i'm not going to use this, just going to throw it out"... now that's not gonna happen with fabric in my lifetime... so i take it back to my "room" that one can hardly turn around in... and dig for the smallest pieces of colors that "go with"... I would NEVER pick this "hot pink and blue",, ... found the blue plaid narrow strip, yellow gingham small pice... and rectangle of green, a little hot pink... i "ripped" the flanned pice , off center... appliqued the free hand cut flowers(not the best, but i forge on).. put in on the frame and had fun.. i found a small ginham check for the back.. and made a bag to hold it all(no pic)... i am so PROUD.. and it's all used up!!!

    That turned out soooo cute. I know what you mean about fabric being tossed. I cringe when I think of all the clothing that was tossed out over the years.

    Happy day

    I was so worried about not having a stash, and now fabric keeps on flowing in! I love it, but I have a tiny house with three growing children and now a growing fabric pile. Hehe.

    Love your flowers! Very cute.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one to add to my stash. But I have a New Years resolution, that I won't buy anymore fabrics, unless I really have to.
    Your quilt is adorable. It sort of gave me an idea to make a quilt for our bed, with some appliqué on it. Have to think that over.

    Thanks for sharing
