SVW/CYS Stash visitors welcome or celebrate your stash

Some time in the early hours of the morning while lying awake I had an idea. Well you do don't you??
You know how we all talk about our stash and hide our stash occasionally when we feel its becoming an embarassment? And you know all these stash busting KAls etc??
The moggie has had an idea. 2007 should be the year of Celebrate your Stash. We ought to have a day for that don't you think? How about the 1st March as Celebrate your stash day? A day to get your stash out from the hiding places.Under the bed, airing cupboard, attics, well you get the picture. A day to say "This is my stash and I am proud of it". A day to remember when you purchased it and where and more importantly why. Bonus points if you purchased it just because:)
Leading on from this ,and yes this does deserve another button I think, We could have a SVW on our blogs. "Stash visitors welcome" A place where like minded folks could come and see someone else's stash when they are on holiday somewhere new. Never mind the ancient monuments and old castles, I am sure I am not alone in drooling at the thought of seeing and fondling someone elses supply of gorgeous yarn. There would of course be the plus point that said visitors may (or may not) bring gifts to add to the stash and then the caretaker of said stash could always perhaps?? point the visitor towards a local yarn shop for souvenirs of their visit.
So what do you think? Fun no?

It's absolutely worth doing, we all love our stashed yarns, don't we? *^v^* I believe last year 1st April was the 'Flash Your Stash' day on many blogs, but I had the impression that people were generally ashamed of what they had accumulated, not proud of it...

Oh, I love my stash but flashed it not too long ago....

Love the idea also good to have the pressure to get it all out and check it over (need to make sure damp or (whisper) moths haven't got to it). But... where did I put it all?
