    I am having a grand ole time....reorganizing my fabric. I have been dreading doing this, and I am enjoying it! I keep my stash on a book case, and I am regrouping it and refolding it. I am very pleased with my results, have found fabric I forgot I had (imagine that), and am surprised that I dreaded doing this.

    True, I would rather be sewing, but I will be soon. I am about half done. I started off just incorporating the fabric I bought Thursday, but decided it was just time to fix the organization. If I don't like the way it ends up, I can always change it, right??

    Fondling fabric is always fun! My hanging sweater and shoe organizers in my closet are drooping terribly with the weight of all the fabric, they are too full. Need to de-stash soon, as alot of it I will probably not use now-tastes have changed or bought for quilts I don't want to make now! It's sort of like wanting to straighten just one cupboard, and you end up doing all of them!

    Well, I do have to admit that if my stash looks organized, the rest of my sewing room won't...so I may have to organize even more stuff....

    Yeah, I said I wouldn't buy any more fabric until....also. Didn't work so well, but I do like what I bought last...which was Thursday.

    I was having fun today too folding my fabric and using those fabric boards. They look so good on my shelves. I only had a few I had ordered on line previously. Now I need more and can't wait to get them, I just ordered 2 sets from M.I.Late here on the quilting board.

    Good for you! I am one that loves organizing, I probably like it just as much as quilting actually...my fabrics start to talk to me, and I am designing quilts as I organize!
