"Hurry up and take the durn photo - - I'm gettin' the heck out of here."
So far - I've taken one box of fabric over to my mom's (who's having a yard sale tomorrow...if you're local, it's on 10 Weldon Ave) so she can get rid of it, and took a tote bag full of fabric over to my sister-in-law. (Sandra - if you don't want it, throw it out! It's not coming back here!!!) I just had Itty Bitty put another box full in the car.
But I'm taking a bit of a break right now now. I still have 2 washtubs, 2 rubbermaid totes, 2 grocery bags, and 2 stacks of fabric to go through. The decision making process is getting more difficult now, because some stuff is harder to part with now that I've thinned it out a bit. Furthermore, I don't know how I'm going to store what I keep to increase my chances of actually USING it.
I have made up some kits in the past - a big ziplock bag containing the pattern and all of the pre-cut pieces. I wonder if I should cut up some fabric into useable form and make more kits (I sure have a lot of patterns that I want to try!) -- but I'm worried about the time it would take, and if that would inspire me to actually SEW, because I haven't yet. But then, maybe I could offer the kits to other guild members to make quilts that we donate to the local chemo unit? What to do......
I feel terrible that I've horded all of this STUFF, overburdened and a little nauseated. Someone else could be enjoying it, and I'm sure there are many, many better ways I could have spent my money. I feel like I've gone to a very dark guilty-quilty place!!!
