Oh Kathy, what have you done to me?

Oh Kathy, what have you done to me? You're supposed to be my best friend!  I only made dresses before I met you and now I am so into quilting it's threatening to engulf me. I have 46 boxes of fabric stash and sewing related "stuff", and the worst part is I can't bear to part with any of it so I have to ship it all to California and I have no idea where I am going to put it at the other end as the house we are moving to is too tiny and I won't have a sewing room.

 

I had no idea you had me so addicted LOL

I tried to do a video of all the boxes but Tim has the camera that does video so you'll just have to put up with pictures, or be thankful that's all you get to put up with!

Of course this does not include my regular sewing machine, my serger or "The Beast" my HQ16 quilting machine with its 12 foot frame which sits on 2 six foot tables under a custom made table top (it's nice having a hubby who likes to do woodwork!)


Then of course there is all Jeanette's material stash, her 2 sewing machines…………….. but that's another story.

    Kathy you are too funny! You may not have been with me every time but you sure made me aware of 75% off sales which resulted in so many bolts of fabric they fill more than 2 large suitcases!! I also have to say I have now been in Utah 10 years so I guess I have a bit more of an excuse with 2 more years to collect fabric and stuff. All of the wonderful fabric you have given me over the years has been used and what is left I have had to put in storage, this is just what I REALLY can’t part with.

    It comforts me to know that others feel safe and secure with all that fabric around them. hehehe  You met a very obsessive compulsive shopper when you moved to Utah 8 years ago but of course back then I have more funds to work with.  I promise to leave some of my stash to you and Jeanette when I leave this world so just know that you'll probably be moving 80 boxes of fabric at some point.  At least I didn't go with you to buy it and encourage you, you did that all on your own so congratulations.  Jeanette says that visiting my storage room when I keep all my fabrics is like visiting a candy store.  Guess I'm going to have to find someone else to share my candy with for a while.
