Illustration Friday ~ Hoard



Edith was known to HOARD fabric and notions of every variety.

"I really must get this problem under control," she thought, as the salesclerk measured out yardage.

I didn't think I hoarded until I saw this.
One can hoard fabric to the point of an extra room, more bins, more shelves, more, more and more...
...and to the point of no possible time for all of it.
What a mind and eye opener! Great lesson!
Beautifully done... and so innocent... hm!

My friends and I hoard yarn.

I used to hoard books but am learning to let go.

Now, I have to work on my yarn addiction.

Very funny, as always, Nancy! I did a sewing theme, too, about a friend who hoarded quilting squares - she'll never live long enough to use them all!

Candace Trew Camling said...

I hoard that type of stuff too... and don't sew very much! I just like to touch of scooping up a handful of colorful buttons and plush snippets of fabric. Hmm... I'm just like Edith!

You never know when you might want to throw a quick quilt together, eh?

There are definitely worse things to hoard, if you ask me Edith is an ok lady, hee hee.

Another cool fairy!

hoarding fabric is a good hoard :) I love fabric and so does my dog rat, he loves to roll on it and drape himself in it lol I think he is in touch with his feminine side! Love this piece :)
