    I keep a lot of mine in my [unheated] section of Hubby's shop, where it's cold, so much of what I buy in the winter [that I don't use right away] doesn't get "put away" until spring. The inside fabric would say "When are you going to make something with me?" or "When will I meet the others?"
    andt the outside fabric would say "Hey, I'm cold" . . . which is why I buy fabric in the winter. Cuz I don't want to "shop my stash" in the cold.

    Mine would say, "Hey, she found us again. Maybe this time she'll use us in a quilt and not just stuff us into storage."

    I am just recently getting back into quilting after several years away (knitting took over) and have been rediscovering all my fabric - and UFO projects LOL.

    Don't mind being folded, refolded, touched or admired and you keep supplying new friends for me. So what's the hurry? I may go out of style, but by the time you "do" get to me, I'll probably be back in!

    Mine probably says "stop stroking me and dreaming and just cut me up why don't you, you know you want to!"

    When I look at my fabric, [and I just did] I hear it saying "Nooooo. Don't cut me up! I'm too pretty!"

    Now, it probably isn't saying that, but that is what I hear.

    I will put on my witch hat, cackle, and say "I'm going to cut you, my pretty!"
    and the ugly ones will just snicker cuz they think they have nothing to worry about. They just don't know the ugly ones get cut first, and into the smallest pieces.

    "Hey, us Fat quarters have been in storage for years and you bought four new ones last week! And you've already started a table runner with the new ones!" "What up with that?

    I cut it twice and it was still too short!
