but I still haven't felt up to sewing or (more dangerous) working at the cutting table.
So I've spent some more time trying to decide how to sort my fabric stash when I move back into the sewing room. (my husband needed to get this bookcase out of his parking space so the move in has sort of started!)
repro blues in the dresser drawer...I think I will continue to keep the reproduction fabrics in the spare bedroom. Holiday and shirt fabrics will stay in their own boxes. The Kaffe fabrics will be kept in the cabinet. Wool will be in a separate cabinet along will the hand embroidery threads.
one of several medium boxes with blue fabrics...Other fabrics will be sorted by color in large or medium containers.
I will have my own "pre-cuts" to include 6-1/2 inch, 3-1/2, 2-1/2 and 2 inch squares. Strips will be in 3-1/2, 3, 2-1/2, 2, and 1-1/2 inch. That is 7 medium size boxes.
This will reduce my storage space...or at least consolidate some of it. The biggest challenge will continue to be the project boxes.
I've cut these in almost half during the last 12 months but there are still too many! I don't want to put them too far away (like the to shelf of the closet) because of the old "out of sight out of mind" saying.
Worse are these baggies containing bits of fabric that I'm not even sure why I thought were important enough to bag up! Most of these are getting reincorporated into the stash...
Then there are these project bags...such a mess! I have one friend who hangs them neatly in a closet. Doesn't work in my smaller closet so I'm going to move these into project boxes...
So much work to do still! Need to go get a cup of tea and think about it...
