Trouble Letting Go

>I just turned some oak from hurricane Isabel and found that it had spalted. I really like the way this turned out! 10" wide, 2" tall, about 1/2" thick. I wanted it to feel heavy, and it does.

When does the desire to hold on to every single bowl fade away? I find that everytime I turn something I'm so attached that I have to find a new place for it in the house. You know. First cedar bowl, first walnut bowl, first walnut platter, first walnut bowl with _that_ shape...
