For the last year, I have been purchasing storage cabinets (and assembling them, what a job!) for my stash. I have fabric everywhere before the organizing began. I had filled a credenza, two closets, countless plastic tubs and bin with fabric that I've collected for 20 years. I've sorted through most of it and gave away fabric that I felt that I wouldn't use and what was left needed a new home. Here are pictures of the six cabinets that I've filled and not shown, is one more cabinet for future acquisitions. (I like to plan for future purchases!) I had more white/cream/yellow/gold and green than I thought I had. These filled two cabinets. The blue and reds share a cabinet. The pink/peach/orange and purples share a cabinet. The browns and black/grey and large florals and homespuns/plaids and Thimbleberries fabrics share a cabinet. The conversation prints/kid prints and fabric panels and all the backing fabric share a cabinet. The seventh cabinet is empty, but I'm not worried that it won't be filled eventually. This was a big job, but really glad that it's done. My plan; since I have current project boxes (UFOs) in the upstairs sewing room, is to finish those before planning any new projects. I know, simpler said, than done.
I am a Pastor's wife of 38 years; mother of two grown and married children, quilting for over 40 years, Longarm quilter for 14 years, domestic sewing machine collector (don't ask me how many sewing machines I have!) I love woodworking (building cabinets and bookcases), I like to read mysteries and watch "chick" flicks. I love all types of music except Blue Grass, but my favorites are Contemporary Christian and oldies-Rock'n Roll.
