stash (stsh) Slang
tr.v. stashedstash·ingstash·es
To hide or store away in a secret place.
n.  1. A secret place where something is hidden or stored.
     2. Something that has been hidden or stored.

The something in this case is fabric.

It's not MY fabric though.  It's been stashed by Flossyblossy.  Fortunately since she is at work all day I can sneak up and snip bits off and hopefully she'll never notice.  

Why is this good?  Most first time quilters are probably a bit unsure about fabric and don't know what to choose or what is even available.  They'll also have a limited budget.  I have the advantage of raiding the stash of an experienced quilter!  Yea!  

So, now that I am about to start choosing fabric for my 9 patch I'm a bit spoilt for choice!

Oh, and did I mention scraps?  Bags and bags and bags of them?


  1. uh-oh. I can sense trouble brewing!

  2. Yikes! I fear you maybe dicing with death!

  3. Would it be prudent to take stuff from the back of her stash so she won't notice? Like eating the back of an Easter egg and leaving the front intact?!

  4. The good thing is that she hardly looks through her stash anymore. She's like a magpie so it's only the new, shiny fabric that she's interested in!

  5. Leave the fabric or the cat gets it!

  6. Oh tense drama unfolds - haha!
