    That is funny. When we went to AZ for 5 months last winter. I had the underbed storage FULL and when I got ready to quilt. Guess what? I didn't have the fabric that I needed so had to go buy more anyway. Go figure...

    I don't put my projects in grocery bags. It's the cheapest plastic there is and paper bags are just as bad if not worse.

    I call mine ladies in waiting and they're in Art Bins. There are 7 in the bins.

    Depends on if your counting the PIGS I got in my freezer. I have Pig Chops, Pig Bacon, Pig Sausage, Pig ham.
    Now as for the PIGS of sewing...I have one or two sort of. I have 1/4 triangles cut for I'm not sure. I think mainly because I saw how to sew 2 fabrics together and sew all the way around it and then cut it into 4 pieces and I wanted to try it.
    Then I have a bento box that I do not like the colors of but I do have one huge block of it done. I put it away for a later day. But thats all I got.

    My PIBs are "projects in baggies".

    But it's that FARTs I'm giggling over; it is WAY too appropriate for the group I run with, gotta share it with them!

    I used to sell S.E.X. at my shop. Yep, in sealed, plain, brown paper bags for $5. Very popular, some customers just could not get enough, it was like gambling to them!

    I save those clear zipper bags that sheets on pillowcases or that stuff comes in and I use those or baggies so I can see what is in there, what the pigs look like. Cute

    It all depends on how you define a pig. I have two huge bins of completed tops just waiting to be quilted. Then I have many (more then a dozen) sets of completed blocks waiting to be stitched into a top. I keep these in separate boxes with the pattern and any extra material for sashing.I also have some boxes with just a few completed blocks. As for the total number, I've never really counted but I bet I wouldn't be far off 100 if I included every single one that has anything cut or stitched. This didn't happen overnight. I have now been sewing for almost 50 years which seems impossible for me to believe.

    I have 2 that I can think of..... a very small, potholder project, and my bargello quilt that I purchased fabric for and it keeps getting side tracked with other things. I'm not going to start these however till I finished my UFO's that I promised to do.

    My PIGS like to play hide and seek. I know I have a litter of them but they've all scattered and I have to round them up again. LOL

    I have PIPB's "projects in pizza boxes". I put some acid free tissue paper inside the box, the project and top it with another piece of acid free tissue. The boxes usually cost anywhere from 25 - 50- cents at our local pizza place. Don't use if they have been used for pizza, as there is usually a bit of yuck from the pizzas soaked into the boxes.
