Why do I do this to myself?
But I needed to clean the closet out because I've got to stash some other stuff in it, as the adult-kids-living-elsewhere can't seem to find space for their stuff and we're about to start some renovation again so It Must Move. So all the accumulated/pulled out fabric had to get corralled and rebinned.
Y'all. This is no way to run a railroad. I can't even think about what I want to do with all that.
I sorted it out and rebinned it...mostly; the silk bin and the printed cotton bin were both full, so I had to figure out something else to do with the overflow. And I did leave a few pieces out because I am determined to turn them into clothes for the closet.
But the truth is that I have had a real come-to-Jesus-moment regarding the fabric stash.
And I have decided that I am adding nothing to the stash for a year. Nothing.
Now, that does not mean I won't buy any fabric at all...but it does mean that anything that I buy has to be sewn up at once. So that allows for emergencies, like a costuming project, but by and large...I'm going to try to use the stash.
I mean, that's why it's there.
So...between now and my birthday in July 2016...I'm going to be shopping the stash.
There. I said it out loud, with witnesses.
