Over my Limit on Stash
I'm having my brother and his family stay with us for the first 2 weeks of July. He live 4 states a way and I'm really looking forward to the visit. So I have to clean my sewing room. In case they peek in it I don't want them to think I'm a crazy quilting person lol. My sewing room is a converted 6x8 storage closet. I have a counter top on one 6 foot wall I have my sewing machine on and a dresser on the other wall I use for storage and the top for cutting. I have the shelves for storage. I've been trying to get all of my sewing stuff in the room for a while and was doing really good until last month. Mill End Fabric Store had a really good sale etc. etc. you know how it goes. I have been trying to get all my folded fabric to fit on this shelve. (each stack is about 100 yards) To clean the room (see the floor agine)I had to fill 2 Rubbermaid tubs with fabric. Plus the one I had. So I am three tubs over my limit.
Here are my drawers of precut scraps. I have 2 small ones and 2 nice ones on wheels that fit under the counter. I plan on making some nice labels when I get a chance so ignore the ones I have now.
They also are pretty stuffed full.
I made the strip quilt using these and hardly made a dent. I really need to fabric diet and bust some stash. Guess I have something to keep me busy this winter.
