Yes, me too; I love it.

Ha, ha, true that! Your DH does great work. You are going to do great things in that organized room . Congrats on finishing it. So jealous
May I borrow your organizational skills...LOL. Beautifully done by you and hubby both.
Just discovered I qualify for FABLE (Fabric Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy)
Nice job organizing. I could park in that parking spot.
I should probably toss out at least a fourth of my stash, but I don't. I keep going back to it to do my strip piecing. It doesn't matter if they are ugly; they can be used in "mug rugs", pot holders, hot pads, etc. The list goes on.
Strip piecing is very forgiving. Another thing you can use that fabric for is a foundation for your strip piecing. Every now and then, I take out a stack from my stash and spend time cutting into different size squares for later use. I may never use it all, but it's ready for someone else to finish. At least I hope so. Love your bookcase and organization.
Ditto. There is someone out there like me that would take your ugly fabric. Contact a guild, they are always in need of fabric for community pro
jects. Remember, " your junk is someone elses treasure".
Great bookcase and great husband!
If you have something that you don't need or want, list it on FreeCycle, give it to a Thrift Shop or a Quilt Guild. Our guild make quilts for the homeless, for those burned out of their homes, for kids in the hospital, for kids in children's homes. Each child, at a home run by the Lutheran church, is able to pick his or her own quilt when they arrive and it is theirs to keep forever. Sometimes it is the only thing that they have ever had that they could call their own. We make belly pillows for a local hospital for those who have had surgery. None of these recipients care what the fabric looks like, only that they have been given something made with love. I try to give or donate anything I can to keep it out of the landfills. BTW, you have a talented husband. The bookcase is really nice.
