    stash control

    Trying to downsize the area my stash takes up..I have found three walking "feet", one of two Big Foot free motion darning foot that I know I own..enough brand new machine needles to sew a year, multiple thimbles-including jelly thimbles, seam rippers, 4 rolls blue paint tape....And thread...Lots and Lots of new spools of thread... i have not started into the fabric yet! Going to be a long nonsewing day tomorrow.
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    The best way to downsize the space your stash takes up is to make scrappy quilts. I recently finished a top and figured out that it used 9 yards of material. Doesn't even look like it put a dent in my stash. Almost all of my fabric is in a 6' tall (by 3' wide) cabinet. I really want to go on a spring shop hop, but will most likely not go, as I have plenty of fabric.
    Go forth and sew!

    I found several duplicate rulers when I started organizing -- so I put the dups in my class kit.

    If you find my 2nd pair of reading glasses while you're straightening things up, let me know. I've been looking all over for them.
