I have stacks of fabric. Stacks and stacks. And I always seem to be obtaining more before I use up all I have on hand. So the stacks continue to grow. In my defense I do work better when creating if I have plenty of fabric to create with. So I have to get a bit creative with fabric storage. And I do have to go through and get rid of some now and then.
I recently went through my fabric stash and ruthlessly created a discard pile. Then I stuffed the discarded stuff into some plastic bags and stashed it away to await my spring garage sale. I did the same thing with my ribbon stash.
The fabric in the ‘keep’ stacks was organized in a rather quick fashion and some of it found a new home on these shelves in my sewing room. I liked the way these shelves looked with decor on them but I’m fast running out of fabric storage room so the decor had to find another storage spot. Honestly, I’m not sure where all of it ended up – some of it may end up in the discard pile and find itself in the spring garage sale too.
I rather enjoy looking at these stacks of fabric. It makes me want to get busy and create some fun stuff. One of these days I will pull up my ‘Stuff I’d Like To Make’ Pinterest board and peruse it for some fun ideas to create.
My sewing machine and serger go to the shop tomorrow for some R&R – that would be oiling and service in machine talk. Maybe I can get a couple of painting projects done while they are gone! Oh yes, and a little hand-stitched monogramming project I’ve been slowly working on!
Hope your weekend was wonderful and you are headed into a joyful and productive week!
