I. AM. SICK. Sick, Sick, Sick. I mean, yes, I have the stomach crud (I've lost 3 pounds in 4 days), but I mean I'm sick in the brain. I have this crazy need (yes, it's a need) to hoard lots and lots of fabric. What's the problem with this? Nothing (other than I need another couple of jobs to pay for it) except that I'm such an inexperienced quilter that I don't do anything with the fabric! I'm too afraid of cutting it wrong or not having enough for a project later on when I can't get my hands on anymore of the print that I need. I'm sad, I know. But it's all so pretty! I just want it! I just need to be a better quilter first. And more money :)

Let me put it to you this way, since I don't have pictures taken, listen to the stash that I have (and won't touch): Quilt Minnesota fabric by Moda, The Ghastlies fabric by Alexander Henry, The Quilter's Kitchen fabric by Red Rooster, plus a huge bag of fat quarters of Christmas fabric purchased at the Quilt Sampler in Tulsa to make my mom a Christmas tree/ Santa quilt that is too adorable for words, and enough fabric to make a log cabin quilt.

See, I need help. Good thing I'm signed up for a couple of classes next month. Maybe they can sympathize with me and straighten me out! Is anyone else out there as fabric crazy as I am? We should start Fabric Stasher's Anonymous!

I'm with you! I would totally have to join your Fabric Stasher's Anonymous group. I have lots of old fabric I never use including fabric I bought in England to make a skirt out of five years ago!
