Is it a stash? Or is it a collection?

I recently discovered that I have quite a large fabric stash that I can't seem to cut into. The fabrics are just so pretty that the thought of cutting them makes me sad. In talking with my fellow quilting friends I learned that not only is this ok, but it is actually very, very normal. Who knew??? So now I am in the process of sorting through my stash. I have two categories: 1. My stash - which I fully intend to use... someday and 2. My new fabric "collection" -which I probably won't use because either A) they are too pretty to be cut into or B) I bought them on a whim because they are so pretty, but really I have no use for them.

Another good thing came from going through my stash. I found these beautiful Garden Party charm packs and I know exactly what I am going to do with them. I will show you soon!

With my new found knowledge of the difference between a collection and a stash I can keep purchasing guilt free! I just hope my husband understands the obvious need for both a stash and a collection!
