Sunday Stash Report September 19th 2010

Still no sewing around here, but some progress to report.  My new sewing room is ready to be occupied by my stash!.  New carpet, freshly painted walls and a beautiful base molding done by hubby.  The room is little, just 12' x 12' but it 's all mine!.

I've been trying to get all the stash out of the various closets and hiding places, Oh boy! It doesn't seem like a lot until you put it all together.  I decided garment sewing is not for me (you couldn't tell by the amount of non-quilting fabric I had) and gave most of the fabric  away.  I was so happy to see two 30 gallon bags, a boxfull and even a couple of bolts leave my house.  Mostly flannels, knits, sheers and other "I don't know what it is or why I bought it" fabric.
I'm sure there will be more fabric leaving my house, this is so liberating.  It lightens my mood, the burden of having too much and it will be easier and faster to organize my new sewing room.  I've also decided not to include this lot in my stash report, it seems to me I bought maybe half of it at least a couple of years ago and beyond, but I'm sure the other half  was given to me.  Just the fact that this much left my house is in my book a winning situation.
I am not taking an hour or so (until the stores open, I have storage units to buy) to browse other quilting blogs over at Judy's  patchworktimes.com   and see what other's have been up to this week.

Depending on how you set it up, a 12 by 12 area can be just perfect. I have a feeling that you will make it just that...PERFECT for you! Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

Personally, I would have counted all of that out! It would have looked great... but I can see why you didn't. Just think how happy you are going to make other people.
