I have been cutting into my Denyse Schmidt fabric
stash collection in a big way recently. For one thing, it’s getting kinda out of hand. Never thought I’d say that!
And I keep thinking that I’m saving those fabrics for a ‘special project’ but when is that project going to come along? How will I know which project is special enough to cut into my precious DS fabrics?
So I decided that this project is that special project. It is special exactly because I am using these fabrics. I made the project special, I’m not going to sit around waiting for some divine signal of project-specialness.
Thinking about this made me think of this post about ‘spending out‘ from Gretchen Rubin. It’s kinda sad to hoard these fabrics and never use them. We should use the ‘good stuff’, right?
