    Finally got my stash back!

    Dh finally got my fabric stash out of storage yesterday! It had been in storage for a year. I can't wait to go through it again! And dh was nice enough to take it all up to the 3rd floor room for me. He filled a 16 foot trailer with totes 3 high! That did include the rest of my Christmas decorations, 2 totes of his hand tools and a generator though so it wasn't all fabric! I feel like a kid in the candy aisle today!

    Good for you mm! I'm sure it will be tempting to oogle all your fabrics and NOT start a new project!
    Go forth and sew!

    I'm happy for you! Last year we put our house on the market & lots of our 'stuff' went into storage. I kept my sewing room but gave up my stamping craft room. After NOT selling the house we brought it all home and I know just how you feel! Enjoy!!!

    Wow. I wouldn't be able to go a year without my stash. It will all seem like new fabric since I'm sure you will have forgotten some of the fabrics. Have fun sorting through it all.

    How fun for you and it will be like Christmas. I need to go through mine again - peraps this winter. Always a good thing because then I see things I should finish or things I don't need or want any more, too.

    How wonderful that you have it out of storage and the DH took it all upstairs for you too

    I felt the same way when we moved. I sorted everything out and found things I had forgotten I had and also found fabrics that I loved when I bought them and still love now and am thankful to have. Very exciting!
