Thinking ahead . . .

I saw this on Facebook this weekend and it really made me laugh. Someone else had left a comment asking if anyone had gotten to her stash before the family put it all in the trash.

Way too much truth in this for a lot of us. I don't think I could live long enough to use up my fabric stash. But I am sure enjoying it now and I guess that is OK. It's my only real vice, and it's pretty harmless.

Although my daughters are worried about the task of cleaning out my sewing room when that day comes. Hopefully that is 30 years down the road.

  3. this gave me a chuckle first and then reality set in....quilters SHOULD be immortal, or have a much longer life span at any rate....

  4. Having had to clean out my mom's stash of 50+ years, 5 of which she worked at a quilt shop, I know what a difficult task it is to get rid of the fabric. Even being a quilter, I couldn't and didn't want to take it all. We donated 7 massive black bags of fabric to her quilt guild, pitched a lot to the dump, and I took 5+ totes. It's a huge undertaking, which is why I try to limit my purchases and sew with what I have.

  5. Plus... all the UFO's I've felt the need to finish has been another road block. I just couldn't let them all go to the dump. Each year I do a few more, to the point that I have probably less than 10 now.
