my stash...

Judy L over at Patchwork Times wants us to show our stash, to take pics and then use the fabric and in Jan 2010 take another pic, and at the end of 2010 another pic... hopefully showing how much we have used. The objective is to use our stash...


stash 1
So here goes... this is my shelves in the front sewing studio. I folded all my fabric a couple of years ago when I learned to fold it over the long ruler, that way making it all the same size and it stacks very nicely. In the bins between the shelves is more fabric, mostly FQ's. The small bins on the top shelves are full of small novelty strips for the baby quilts.



stash 2

This is the second shelving unit with my stash in it. This is mostly all backing fabrics and my christmas fabric. This is in the other room near my frame. I have a few tubs with fabric in them but they are spread out- too hard to take a pic of.

Now for the reality check................ My sewing table!
Neo-Man says that a small Portuguese family is living under the pile of fabric in the corner of the table.
the table
That is zip bags with blocks in them... most are projects to finish or baby blocks for love cover quilts. The corner seems to be a catch-all of everything I want to keep out and will use. The bulletin board is where I pin notes and patterns...

Neo-Man has told the firemen he works with that if our house catches fire- just bring a chair- pack a lunch and sit outside and spray water on it... with all the fabric in one main area it will smolder for days.........

I guess is time to organize my table.... and time to get busy sewing.

Since I am finally done canning!!! I put up beets, green beans, corn, tomatoes, applesauce and apple pie filling & peach filling.

later Darlin'
