    I hate to admit this, but last night I cleaned up my stash and I enjoyed doing it. I fondled, touched, sighed, rubbed and just played with all the pretty fabrics that I had forgotten that I owned! I found plenty of blues and whites to use in the star swap. I found lots of stuff that I hope will help me in the IRR. And I found 2 UFO's that belong in the UFO challenge that I posted...so now I have to do them :oops:

    All my stuff was jammed under and beside a bed...now its in these nice towers and I can actually find it!! I also found that I really need to make a scrap quilt :oops: :lol:

    I have drawers filled with beautiful colors!

    Great stach. Nice job with the organizing. That is what I need to do. I have a long 3 drawer cabinet with fat quarters and then some. Need to take it all out and fix them like you did. My closet is color coded and have kept it that way for quite awhile now. Makes like so much easier! But then of course you know what you have and know that you really don't need any more fabric. But with organization you have to much more room to buy more........

    I love to get my fabric down off the shelf and just go through it and fondle it and refold it and touch it. Sometimes I have forgotten I have certain fabrics and it is like getting something new all over again! Great job organizing. I like your drawer system.
