Lately, I've seen quite a few discussions about how having fewer choices -- in our yarn and fabric stashes, at the grocery store, or wherever else -- is supposed to make us happier.
Um....no. I'm not happier when the grocery store limits me to three different kinds of frozen vegetables to choose from. I actually shop at four different grocery stores on a regular basis because I want more choices, not less. (If I've got to do dishes for six people, I'm getting the brand of dish soap that I think works best. Same with a few other things.) Having too many choices is the least of my worries.
I'm the same way with my fabric. No way am I going to go through all of my blacks and pare them down to fewer options. It's black....or blue, pink, brown, whatever... I'm going to use it sooner or later. If I had to pare down my stash to move it into a smaller space, I would. But no way am I cutting down on my options just because someone tells me I'd be happier with fewer of them!
Now if I went up to the sewing room and sorted and got all of my blacks and pinks and browns and greens together.... THAT would probably make me a happier quilter!
