Then a couple of weeks ago Kelbysews had the brilliant but terrifying idea to have a quilt a long where we actually use the fabric that we have been hoarding for years. GASP! A little traumatizing, but I thought, "Hey! I should do that!"
So I got to work swapping some of my less precious fabric for some of the Mendocino prints that I didn't have. One of the swaps I did was with Amanda. She swapped me 2 very generous cuts for one of my fabric buckets. So I decided to practice cutting into some other prints from the horde to make her bucket and also to prepare me for cutting into the Mendocino.
I was able to finish the bucket without too much anxiety. But now that it's time for to cut into Menodcino I can feel the panic rising. It is sitting on my cutting table ready to go. But mostly I just keep moving it around, and petting it, and taking photos of it.
Maybe today will be the day that I work up the nerve to do it! It's just fabric, right?
