Well I finally won (as I usually do) and got Corey to let me add another bookshelf to our upstairs. I have been wanting a small bookshelf to put my fabric stash on. Up until now, it has been in a large Tupperware bin and it has been difficult for me to keep up with what I have. Now if you know me well, then you know that I have a problem with buying fabric and an even larger problem with not using it. I have sewn very little since I learned to sew. At least I'm honest? In my defense I am one busy girl but I really have a lot of things I'd like to make for our babies as well as our friends who are expecting. I thought this would be a good step in the right direction and it has encouraged me to not buy anymore fabric until I start using what I have! It was like Christmas unpacking it all and organizing it.
That brings me to my next point - I decided to organize it for now into color families as best I could. I'm curious if you have a fabric stash as to how you organize it. I haven't decided if I want to use baskets or not at this point so I just folded it all and put it on the shelf. I tried to explain to Corey that this is a common topic among the world of sewers (if that's a word)! I also noticed that my blue stash is triple that of my pink stash - what does that say about me!? :)
