When I moved into my sewing room after the remodel early this year (above) everything was in perfect order. I love that. But it is hard to use fabric and pull from your stash all the time while keeping it perfect unless you spend lots of time refolding and reorganizing. I do my best to keep it in order but I prefer to sew rather than make sure all the ends of my fabric are exactly lined up. So fast forward to my sewing room today - see below.
This is my semi-organized stash. I have tried all kinds of organization methods over the years and this is my latest one. I just fold and shelf. I don't separate color or type. It is too hard to clean up and put away if I put all the same things together. This way it is a blend of color and styles and I've come to be enjoy looking through fabric when I need a certain color because I end up finding things I forgot about! So that is some of my stash.
So what does your stash look like?
There are some fun things going on around the blogs. Erin is having her first giveaway. Go see her and tell her I sent you. She's a great girl. Jane (another wonderful girl) is having a fat quarter sale for Christmas fabric. What a deal - $1.00 each! Jane and her friend Elaine already sent me their Christmas Cottage Blocks and they are super cute. All those of you that wanted to participate in our exchange but couldn't, go check out Jane's fat quarters. Anyone not in the exchange can send me their cottage pictures too and I'll show them on my blog. And speaking of cottages go see Patty's blog called My Home Made Life. She has the cutest cottage made with Japanese fabric. You've got to see it. It is so darling. And she has some pretty fabulous vintage quilts on the clothes line too. Good work Patty!
And does anyone remember when I told you to go enter Sarah Smith fabulous prize drawing??? That was back in early September. Did you go and enter?? Well I did. And I won 2nd prize!!! Yipee. Go to Sarah Smith blog (scroll down a little) and see what I won. I love their products. I won 4 gifts. I cannot wait to get them. I think I recognize some of the names of other winners. Melissa J. and Polly is that you??? I sure hope so.
So where are your stash pics?
