V's sight , I realized that I too was looking forward to a shipment of fabric that I purchased online. Except, my expectation was for a totally different reason. I did not have any plans for it, and am therefore extremely comfortable/okay with using it for random play.
What do you mean Encyclopedia, you all ask. Well, see the pic above. That fabric is secreted away in its own bag in a special place because I love it sooo much, and purchased it for a mariners quilt that I plan to do, one day...soon I hope.. Instead of just using it, since I don't know when the Mariners quilt will get started, i go off and find other fabric that I don't really care about. Preferably sale fabric because it is justifiable in my mind to be used for unstructured play.
I have sooo much fabric that I purchased from various shops that did not have a purpose, but because it was the "Good Stuff" I am not playing with it. Now, as I am writing this, I realize that it is just fabric and I should not have any attachments to random lengths (yards, 1/2 yards, quarter yards, etc)...
Isn't the whole point of this is to enjoy and create with wonderful tools. So why do I feel this unnecessary attachment and as such am not making use of a wonderful fabric stash...I simply don't know.
My question to you all...Is it just me? How do I break this spell?
