What a couple of weeks! Again, no stash usage to report, I'm still working on getting the stash organized and confined to the new sewing room.
( It's a little slow going as we officially moved to the new facility at work and the commute now takes an additional 3 hours of my time). I keep finding boxes and bags with more fabric! sometimes duplicate cuts of the same fabric, I must of really liked it ;-).
The positive side? I'm figuring out what colors I have excess of, what colors need to be replenished and most importantly what fabric I no longer love or want. This is very liberating, even the magazine stash is getting an overhaul. I've kept every issue of three different quilting magazines from as early as 2004, I think I want to keep 2 previous years and current issues (2008, 2009 and 2010), then I would be removing the oldest issue as soon as a new one comes in the mail, seems like a good plan to keep the magazine stash fresh and fitting in their new allotted space. I've also been trying to decide on a theme or color scheme, I want to make covers for (3) sewing machines and the serger, a table mat for each, a couple of thread catchers, valances for the window and seat covers or cushion for two chairs. But why restrict myself to a color or theme? I'll work in an assembly line and make a set for each holiday! After all, I have enough fabric. LOL.
Sounds like a good plan, It will help change the no stash used tune I've been singing for a while now.
For now, I'm taking an hour or so to browse other quilting blogs over at Judy's patchworktimes.com and see what other's have been up to this week.
