S.A.B.L.E. is a new acronym I've just reads in the profile of a quilter. It stands for STASH AMASSED BEYOND LIFE EXPECTANCY. Love it! Will personally apply it every time I open my stash closet. I love making stash quilts, like the one in the picture. But even if I become a full time quilter -- won't happen! -- I cannot use up my amassed stash in my life time ... well, maybe if I live as long as I hope to on my best days, yes, I might. IF -- and it's a very big IF -- I don't add to the stash. But, just as I will add to the books I have that I want to read and can't possibly keep up with all of them -- I WILL continue to amass stash. Alas! But I love those gorgeous colors and designs. Love em.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
