Soon I will reach my 100th post!
A VERY special day for me!
On that day I want to post photos of My Second Happy Place. Photos of what I see every time I open the door and turn on the light in my "Fabric Stash Room".
Photos of my STASH.
I have been collecting my stash for years and years and years.
It was all part of my "retirement plan".
I am a certified fabricaholic and the staff at the local quilt shop would often tease me that I only worked to support my "habit". They were right - I bought fabric and I "saved" it.
Now that I am retired - I'm having a lot of fun "using" it.
And I LOVE FABRIC!
My sister rewrote a quote for me once -
Fabric is God's way of saying - "Sorry for all the sh!t!!"
A couple of years ago – it became obvious that my Fabric Stash was getting the best of me –
and that it needed Management. Serious Management.
My various projects were spilling out from my sewing room onto the dining room table and surrounding areas. I had fabric in the house - in the garage - and even some in storage!!
I needed more "room" - or fewer projects - yeah, right!
I searched the internet and found this wonderful video – by Marilyn Bohn –
REDUCE CLUTTER BY ORGANIZING YOUR FABRICS
Marilyn had some really good ideas – but it just wasn’t my style.
It would need some modification – to suit me and my style.
I needed to accommodate –
- · fabric specific to a certain project - in a bin
- · yardage over 2 yds - folded flat -
- · yardage - 1/2 yard to 2 yards -
- · fat quarters
- · scraps
So I thought about it – a LOT –
and since any "guests" who visit us usually stay at one of the nearby hotels -
we decided to convert the spare room into a "fabric storage/project planning room".
I LOVE to play with my fabric - it's good therapy and cheaper than a shrink!!
Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew –
