My red dilemma

I'm not sure if it is a good dilemma or a bad one. Here is my over sized bin of reds.And the top view.
I was only able to find 3 more reds that were darker and looked good with the rest.
BUT, what fun I had looking through the reds. I came home tired from working all day at the store and this immediately energized me. Try to tell me having a stash is not a good thing!

What fun to play in the reds...batiks at that! The color way looks good to me.

I agree. Playing with a bin of fabric is like a kid playing with a bin of toys. Fun!

Sue said...

Lucky you! I love reds. It's always so rich and invigorating. It gives energy and stimulates the appetite

Jackie said...

The reds that you do have are gorgeous. I am sure that you will have no problem finding more should you need them.

That's not a dilemma, that's a bonanza!

Jean said...

What fun....fondling fabric is always a bonus. I think they look nice fanned out on a coffee table for decoration too!

Not many quilters would argue that a stash is not a good thing! The reds are delicious.

Red is my absolute FAVORITE color!I'm planning to re-orgainize my fabrics this week-end while the hubby is away...I'm excited just thinking about pouring through them......ahhhhh. It's better than a good hot cup of coffee...and that's pretty good!!! LOL

Julia said...

That much red would energize me for sure. Lovely!

The red bin looks like great fun -- and a great way to get energized!

I'm a strong believer in color therapy. And with a big bin of gorgeous reds, I'd be grinning for days!!

A healthy stash is great for in house shopping! I've got the same problem but mine are with the blues :-) Yours looks so lovely.

We painted the walls of our living room red. Everyone said it is daring. We have never been fed up.

What fun! I love playing in my stash bins!

Sharon said...

I can relate, my last blog post was about red fabric...it has sent me into rehab!

belinda said...

Yep....my stash is the best therapy I have come across....as well as the MOST exspensive!!

Lynda said...

But they're all beautifully folded and stacked - not like my jumble sale of scraps!

My red collection looks so similar to yours. Vrry few lights and for me even less mediums.
I do have more deep darks though.

YOUR STASH is unbelievable ! But I know how many years you have been collecting it too.

And the thing is your collection seems to be timeless where most of us tend to buy what's 'in' at the time.

What a great collection of reds, Wanda! Red is a neutral, don't you know... at least in my planet. It goes with everything!
Do I sense a Christmas set of blocks with your previously cut green strips?
