If I were, I'd have to report in the 80 yards I brought home from Dallas. But since I'm not I can feel guilt free for my shopping spree (grin).
Seriously. I am a stash buster in theory. Last year I came up with this little formula for purchasing new fabric...only backings, borders or backgrounds were approved purchases as I have been working through my stash and UFO's. Well, I added another "B" -- bolts! But they are backgrounds, borders and backings!! I promise!
I'd discovered a hole in my fabric -- that of not having backgrounds that would work with my brightly colored stash of fat quarters and other various yardage. So I just had to go shopping! If you are a fellow quilter you can certainly understand ...
Can't you just imagine a new quilt with that fabulous green as a background? Or better yet, third from the top, that magenta that is just calling out to be introduced to some of my wild prints. Of course I had to add some purples (#'s 5 and 6 in the stack) and since I'm always saying my stash doesn't include lights I was thrilled to find the white background with purple sprays on it, sorta a tone on tone with purple on white. Yummy!
Now if I can just find room for them in the studio (grin) better yet, if I can just find time to piece! It may be awhile, with almost a week off from quilting I've got to get busy and catch up! Ah, but the day will come and I'll be really really glad I'm not really a stash buster. Maybe that should be the name of a new nail polish -- instead of the one I'm wearing "I'm not really a waitress" -- hum...wonder if it could change colors sorta like the mood rings of old....anyone know the number to the patent office (grin).
