Waterhen and Orchard by Pippijoe
This is the fifth day of Mike's lovely Share Your Fabric Stash.
I have been really enjoying looking through everyone's fabric this week. It really does get you thinking about the psychology behind collecting vast quantities of fabrics. I saw a funny article a while back in a sewing magazine that presented the stash as an "emergency stock-pile". You know ... just in case all the stores run out of fabric and you really have to sew!
I don't think I have quite reached this line of argument ... yet. I think more along the lines of ...
- Scarcity - I might never see it again.
- Time management - It'll save me a trip out another time.
- Economy - Its a bargain; I couldn't possibly pass it up
- Art - Its beautiful. I have to have it.
Of course, I'm not really sure about the merits of saying I love your fabric so much that I am afraid to cut into it and instead keep it in a dark cupboard. Its time to start some projects!
