Oh gods, the fabric

I forgot I had this much fabric. I'm looking at somewhere between 14-18 18 Quart Sterilite containers of fabric and fabric scraps. This doesn't count the tubs of pillow forms I own. Or any of the other crafty supplies (1 container of trim, embellishment, and threads. 1 of paper crafts stuff. 1 of paint and things. 1 of misc supplies...)

Gumby has no idea what he's getting himself into, as I've managed to keep it all in a closet for the past few years. But when it's that organized/compact I'm not using it, and damn it, I wanna be using it again.

And man, some of this fabric is *ugly* I mean, I know buying lots of fabric out of the 1/2 off bins at the now defunct Fabric Place over the years was an economical way of obtaining this much fabric, but I wouldn't be surprised if a whole 1/3 of my current stash is stuff I will not use in the next 10 years. At some point I will hopefully get good enough in my actual quilting that I will stop needing practice sandwiches made of poly-batting and ugly-fabric.. and then what do I do?

Oh crap. I haven't even thought of the rolls of batting in the corner of the living room.

This moving thing? It is a nightmare. No wonder I've been all anxious over packing for the past few weeks...
