Fabric Addiction


Well, I did it again! I bought more fabric. I had a gift card to Joann's and got some great deals. But did I really need to add to my stash? I have collected fabric for over 15 years now... I'm not exactly sure what it is that provokes that NEED to buy fabric. I have so many projects lined up now that I think it would last 2 lifetimes! I just recently read about an acronym on Quilt Talk (yahoo group). The acronym describes this addiction pefectly:

S stash
A acquisition
B beyond
L life
E expectancy

I think they will have to mummify me with my fabric when I die! But seriously, how do you stop???? I don't know if it is the smell of the fabric store or what! I have even thought about opening a quilt shop just so that I can be surrounded by that atmosphere! Is that totally crazy? If you have any advice please share! What do you do to suppress your need to buy fabric?

I am afraid that I have the same affliction :-( Today I did NOT go to the LQS that was having their end of the month sale, because I DON"T need any more fabric! I was good :-)
