I Added about 15 Yards to My Fabric Stash Today

Then I decided to try to get it somewhat organized. I hauled up two heavy bins and folded & stacked by color. Most of what I had I didn't even remember buying.

I sure do envy those of you with sewing studios loaded with pull out see-through drawers. I've seen a few on the net that made me drool onto my keyboard. It's nearly impossible to organize your stash without dozens of those drawers.

Mine is now neatly stacked in see through bins. It does not really work very well because the bins are too deep and the middle fabrics get lost. But it's about the best I will probably ever have.

I also spent a lot of time rotary cutting fabric into strips so it's more manageable when I need it. I even cut up some old clothing that I have had boxed for that purpose for years.

My once empty clean dining room is now full of fabric, an ironing board, boxes, etc. Quilting is a very messy hobby!

Ia anyone going out tonight to celebrate?

I will be sleeping long before the ball falls. I have to be at work tomorrow morning at 6:45 a.m.


  1. You've been busy! We're staying in tonite!
    Happy New Year!

  2. Wow-I hope looking through all that fabric has gotten you in the mood to do lots more quilting.
    Staying home is our speed. I bought some snacks for later, but the guys ate up a storm at dinner. (I made them a big spaghetti and meatball din din).
    Happy New Year!!

  3. I slept the new year in, too! All the better for getting up and going on a project today. There must be something cleaning and straightening bug going around. I spent last week organizing my stash.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Happy New Year to you and yours, dear Zoey!
