This is totally me:
“. . . do not stop buying fabric – it is a part of the collecting process. Don’t put your new acquisitions away or hide them from a disapproving family. You bought them to enjoy, so do just that, even if that means just stroking them occasionally.”
- from Stash-Buster Quilts by Lynne Edwards
(She goes on to mention that you need to start mixing them with other fabrics and cut them up and use them, since that is what you bought them for.)
I'm trying to work on taming my scraps. It's a slow start right now, but I'm working on it. I'm hoping to drag out the big blue bin this weekend (after cleaning and some actual sewing, I promise!).
