Inverse Stash Busting

For many of you stash busting seems to be a regular activity. There are some of you who only allow themselves to buy new fabric once they have completed a project from the stash. Others have vowed not to buy any new fabric for a certain period. Even others only thrift and don’t buy.
I certainly have done all of the above – just not this year… Instead I have firmly committed to what I call inverse stash busting:

Isn’t this just paradise condensed into one pile!

I think that my stash needs to get bigger rather than smaller so that I have enough choice if the fancy takes me. Otherwise I might have to go out and buy fabric especially and that would deprive me of an opportunity to stash bust. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? 😉

Ok, I agree I might have exaggerated just a little, especially since I have omitted from the pictures all autumn fabrics I bought recently – I figured since we are still not even sure whether spring has arrived, the autumn fabrics can wait outside the lime light for a little while…

Am I alone in such naughtiness? Do you ever go on a buying spree like this?

    I think I like your terminology better than “splurge” or “fabric binge”! I’ll borrow it the next time I expand the “mommy’s fabric store”, as I called the fabric storage room today while looking for a suitable something for my youngest to work with.
