Patti really started something with the reorganisation of her sewing room. Hanne has been hard at work too, and yesterday I let some moths out of my purse and purchased two closets for my sewing room.
I've never really had a good sort out in my stash before, and I'm now realising that I have some 'stash issues'. It will become painfully clear when I explain a few things ...
On the top of the closet are some of my scrap boxes - they won't stay there, they're just giving me some room to work in, and the ones in the closet most likely won't stay there either. There are two large blue tubs in front of the closet - they're full of fat quarters and unsorted scraps.
The top shelf in the closet is my Thimbleberries yardage and the white for my DJ and some osnaburg. Yes - that's all of my Thimbleberries yardage!?! But the worst of it is yet to come .... the second shelf is ALL my other yardage! All of it! I really thought I had a lot more - this is a worrying sign.
I actually thought I had a LOT of fabric, but it turns out it's actually mostly fat quarters, skinny quarters and smaller. Which leads me to my question - does anyone have tips for a good way to fold fat and skinny quarters neatly for in the closet? Any tips would be appreciated.
I'm clearly needing some stash enhancement, I will struggle to find borders/sashes and any other coordinates in this lot. This is really unexpected! It's also looking like I'll be scrap quilting for a good long while - there is a lot of small stuff to get thru!
I still have a whole other closet to use, and some of my books and magazines are going in that one too. We're having a big room re-shuffle and clean out - it wouldn't be a stretch to say that the sewing room/study is the most cluttered (and most used) room in the house. Gosh, I'm worn out thinking about it ... makes me really appreciate how hard Patti worked in her sewing room!
