In case you missed my Facebook status...
I discovered a name for my syndrome: SABLE (Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy).
This was part of the editor's note in the June '09 issue of Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. I picked it up from the library this week. I must say that I have SABLE in at least three crafts: sewing, scrapbooking and knitting. Right now the only stash that gets used in the sewing one, although I'm very slowly knitting a shawl. At this rate it'll be done by the end of winter or maybe next winter.
I just thought of another, cross-stitching. There's enough embroidery thread in this house to outlast both Amy & I. :)
