what to do with out of print and hard to find fabrics that you adore?

One of my all time favourite fabrics is the Bohemian print from Moda's Urban Chicks 1974 collection. When i first started making clothes i made a few dresses in this fabric for sale but then i got a bit stingy with it. Ever since it's just been sitting in my 'do not use for anything' stash - until now. I decided to make a new doona cover for Freya's bed. That way I can look at it every day and it has cleared some space on my fabric shelves. Isn't it the best? My lovely friend who made the last lampshade for Freya just recovered it in this coordinating fabric from the collection. I still have a fair bit and i have a few ideas of what i can make with it. Given my track record it will take a lot of time before i get to it :)
