Love your stash
Digging around for projects and fabrics has me thinking. I sometimes feels guilty about having so much fabric and so many unfinished projects. I have tried very hard not to hang on to things that don't give me joy. I have been reading a lot about simplifying and the idea that sticks with me is this: When you look at your things (anything from clothing, to fabric, to dishes) ask yourself, does this bring me joy? If the answer is yes, keep it. No, it needs to go away. Ask, if I didn't already down this, would I buy it again? This is a good one because so often I don't want to get rid of something because I have attached a financial value to it. But would I buy it again? If the answer is no, it also needs to go.
I have spent some time lately decluttering my craft stuff (that is how I found the star quilt, complete with backing and binding!). I want the things I keep to be the things I love. Do you love your stash?
