Telltales of schizocraftia.....




I was up at 7 am last weekend working away on the HST quilt. Calculating the number of inches it will be, carefully cutting the fabric and figuring out how many more tiny squares I require...  I grab the kona white to start cutting it and find myself disappointed as there is only a meter and a quarter.... I'll be shy about  half a meter to have it all cut out. WUH-WAAAh!
So I sit down to plan out how to persuade Big Kahuna to stop by the fabric store amongst our chores today.. This will be no easy task you see... I have promised to behave as we are going on holiday in less than a week and promised a buying freeze until then ... And since I have no patience I want this fabric now...
So I'm sitting... And scheming....
And I look up at my fabric... And I see white!!! I get up and pull it out... But no... Its some cheap poplin I bought from fabric land.
I sit... And scheme...
And ... I see more white!!!!! I jump up and pull open the cabinet doors and waaaaay in the back.. 2 Meters of kona baby!!!
Hells ya.. How the frank did I have all that white and not know? Better yet when did buy this? Fabric squirreling.. Another known symptom of schizocraftia. 
Do you ever find stuff in our drawers you didnt know/remember you had?! 

Sadly this happens more often than I want to admit.
