    Imagine my surprise!

    After reading about everyone's plans for organization and reading all the posts, I've decided that I need to get myself together. A couple of days ago I started the ruler folding of my fabrics. I've completed the blues and started in on the purples. Well, imagine my surprise when I discovered that I don't have very much purple! Is it because I love it and use it a lot? Is it because I haven't found too many purples that I just HAD to have? Are most of my purples in UFO bags that need to be done? No matter what the reason may be, now I feel the need to go out and buy purple!! (I'll try to control myself, though). I hope to be able to post before and after pictures once I figure out the attaching picture thing. I followed the instructions but it keeps telling me it failed. Technology is not my friend...

    I found I had a lot of blue and green in my stash. I do like those colours so I must pick those up most often. I hope to see your pictures once you get them loaded. I can only post pics I have taken with my Ipad.

    I have pink and blue in quite an abundance in my stash. I like making blue/white quilts in general, and pink baby ones in particular. Please post pics! I love before and afters of fabric folded!

    I bounce from one color to another and from brights to civil war, batiks to 30's. I think I need a room for each!

    This is my second post. I got that bug of wanting my fabric to be nice and neat. I started folding on boards. Then I cleaned out some filing cabnets, It looks so nice. Then I open another tote. Now I need another cabinet. I found out that I like pinks and blues with soft flowers. I have been reading this broad since July and have loved looking at everyones work. It is nice to see everyone taking care of others needs. I really enjoy how you joke with each other, just like a family. Thank you for the entertainment and great works of art.

    A follow-up to my original post. Almost no purple, but TONs of red. That makes sense, it's my favorite color, but why is it I can never find a red I like when I'm looking for one? I'm hoping to get my oranges and yellows organized today - who knows WHAT I'll find when I do that!

    While folding I discovered have darks and med but very few lights. Such a delima..shop now or later or both.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Wow.. we are experiencing the same problem. I was working on a baby quilt using up scraps and had incorporated, peach, blue, pink green and yellow. It needed a light purple to ginish up the needed blocks. None in the scrap box, none in the yardage...finally found a FQ that I almost missed. I need more purple. I find I gravitate to the dark colors and need to buy some more pastels in general

    Michelle, technology is not my friend either. That's why I still have my halloween picture as my avatar from 2011'. I have no clue how to change it. If you'd like, we can be non-tech savy friends together!

    Just browsing my stash, I don't have much purple either. The color I have the most of is light blue. Good luck with organizing your fabrics and sewing studio!
    Go forth and sew!
