kathy's fabric stash

For tomorrow:

1) finish quilt  - all I have to do is stitch the binding on. 1/2 by machine, 1/2 by hand - it's going to rain for a million years tomorrow (it's one of those mysteries of time things) so I should be able to watch a movie (2 movies) and get it done.

2) finish Jane Eyre - so I can talk about it in terms other than "I need to finish this book!" or "It's so good!" or "Everyone is whackadoodle!" 

3) laundry - Party in the USA, y'all! 


photo at top is of my friend Blondie's fabric stash a couple of years ago. Since then, she's moved her sewing studio into the master bedroom and herself into the guest room.  But look how organized! If I did that it wouldn't last more than a week - but I find it inspiring nevertheless. I need a little more order so I can get a little more creative. That sounds counterintuitive, but it makes perfect sense to my current state of mind.

  1. That fabric stash made me say Whoa in tones of awe! It's true. I'm not sure I could ever aspire to that kind of organization. Plus I'd worry about the edges fading, wouldn't you?

    So gorgeous!

    Your plans sound terrific! I have plans to sew baby Ryan's quilt strips together, if the machine behaves, which it might not. Come on, machine!

  2. I know! It made me say Whoa in tones of awe too!

    I don't think edge fading is an issue because The Stash is in a constant state of use. Things come down, are considered get used or refolded and returned. If something did fade, I'm sure she would find a way to make it a feature - she's always bleaching or overdying or whatever. She's amazing. My aspirations for fabric organization are much more modest - I'd like to be able to get to it without having to move a bunch of bags filled with half-done projects.

    Yay for baby Ryan's quilt! What does it look like? I hope your machine gets its act together. Get it together, machine!

  3. I would like to have ANYTHING in my life this organized, let alone my non-existent fabric stash!

  4. Would love to see some of Blondy's current works, sigh. I admire her stash so much! Lovely lovely.
