    My DH has to fix my recliner today. It's broken & has been held up by boxes of my stash & I had bags under there too, to keep my bird from nesting under there & attacking my feet. This morning I had to empty the area to give him room to work. I kept pulling bag after bag out & filled a 30 gallon trash bag with the various bags. He asked me what was in all those bags...oops!! I guess I'd been keeping most of it under wraps all this time as I use it. :-)

    We live in a motorhome FT, so no chance of that. We really don't have much room. It's like living in a hallway. Ours is an older model and no pull outs. Maybe someday though! :-)

    I've been busted also. Decided everything was coming out of bins and into a closet so that I could see everything at once.

    Didn't realize at the time that dh could see the same thing! :shock: Oh well, damage is done, but it looks great and now the question I keep getting is don't you have enough fabric!

    Oh please, never enough! Where are my coupons? :wink:

    Hehe if you "get more stash", fold it up and "stash it in your dresser drawer, and just hang up all of your clothes. For your undies and bras, just stuff them all into a pillow case and use it as a pillow. Then you have lots of room for your stash. LOL

    Yikes - I'm having a horrible vision of this bag accidentally being tossed. Please make sure it's well marked. ;-)

    My sister's motor home had a bed that pulled up from the bottom to store whatever under it. More on the line of an old fashioned Murphy bed, except hers stayed down almost all the time.

    That is how our motorhome is. We don't live in it full time, but my hubby would like to be able to someday. I just don't know how I would put quilt frames in there. My quilt frames are the grace EZ so they do fold up easily. Guess if we do it, I will quilt outside. LOL

    No. It broke & kept trying to throw me out, so in desperation I used the box and bags to keep it stable until DH could fix it. He did an awesome job on it today! :-)

    That would work if the bras didn't have wires! Ouch if they did!

    How about layering your bigger pieces of fabric on top of the mattress under the sheets? This would make the bed commfy and allow for more space for the smaller pieces.

    Necessity is the Mother of Invention!

    I sometimes have to put extra fabric in pillowcases and use them as extra pillows,on my bed, for show, but never ever use them as pillows.Not hiding fabric but just need a place to store untill I get around to using it
