Definition of "Stash"

OK.  I need your help.  I need you to tell me what YOUR definition of fabric "stash" is. 

This is what it means to me:  I buy fabric for a certain quilt that I have in mind.  So that fabric isn't in my "stash," it's just in limbo until I can get to making the quilt it's intended to be used for.  I consider "stash" to be the fabric that is left over when my quilt is done -- fabric you probably couldn't make an entire quilt out of, but it would certainly look great in something "scrappy." 

Does this make sense?  Am I wrong?  What do you think "stash" means?


Progress in My Quilt Room

Whew!  What a day!  Today I decided to tackle my quilt room and get everything organized.  Because I'm so new to quilting it really wasn't that bad (I don't have a very big "stash"), but I don't want it to get out of control!  :o)  I also needed to get my WIPs out where I could see them.  Wow, have I got a LOT!  I guess I have a problem with starting one quilt and then, before it's finished, I see something else I want to make and I put the other quilt away, etc.!  Now that they're out in plain sight I think that will motivate me to finish them and get them off my shelf and wrapped around someone's shoulders!  Maybe I can then justify buying more fabric to fill the "empty" spot on my shelf!  That will also help me build my "stash"!!!  :o)

Anyway, I've still got a little more arranging and re-arranging to do so the beginning of next week I should be ready to post some pictures of my new and improved space!  I'll also show you a picture of the early Valentine's Day present my husband gave me to help with my organization!  I LOVE IT!!!  :o)

See you next week!!!

Hugs!!! :o)
