    Overheard in the shop today...

    "Oh, dear, where'll I put all this new fabric?"

    "I don't know... put it somewhere 'up' ."

    "But we're out of 'up' "!

    How about putting it "under" if you are out of "up".

    How about "in?"

    Canning pot, turkey roaster (only needs temporarily be moved in November)..... Clean buckets (who needs to mop anyway!)

    In the book Stash Envy there is an article about all different ways to store stash and hide it from DH at the same time. lol

    The other day, my grown DD was staring in amazement at my spare bedroom....the boxes of fabric, etc. have grown to overwhelm the room (well, there is still walking room around the bed). And I'm trying to reorganize my sewing room so the spare bed was piled with various boxes of "essential" stuff. I told her that this was the stuff that I used on a regular basis and asked her if she had any ideas about storing it. Her comment? "Mom, you got way too much stuff!" :lol:

    I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of room. Most of my stash is at my Sister's house. You should see the look on her face when I show up with more fabric :lol: I think she needs to buy a bigger place for my stash! :twisted:

    I keep re-arranging my cabinets. I put it in the garage in rubbermaid and am also now stacking it on top of the rolling drawers that I have my FQ's in.

    OMG!!!! I guess I need to be hosewhipped!!! I wish I had known about this board 3 months ago when we moved into our new house. I threw out 4 large stretchy garbage bags full of scraps!! I'm sorry...really!!! Had I known I would have saved them to give away....but I also did not think I would ever use them before I take that Quilted Highway to Heaven!!! But I promise from now on I will advertise before tossing!!!

    I no longer have a spare bedroom. When I retired I got rid of the bed and turned it into my "studio". I did put a sofa hide-a-bed in there for when the grands stayed overnight. They are now grown and I would have to clean out the room to have a place to make out the bed. So, if I have overnight guests they get sent to the camper. It is perfectly comfortable and everyone has their space

    Just remember, it's bad Feng Shui to put tools and hard things under the bed. It will disrupt your sleep - but fabric would actually help you sleep better. lol

    Many years ago, when I was into a lot more crafts than now --- now it's tilted toward quilting, but same idea, my husband died........ A friend of hers asked if I was going to move into a condo now. My daughter's respons: You have to understand my mother.....when we left home, she bought a bigger house rather than downsizing...just to hold her "stuff". LOL LOL yeah I need a bigger house. Trying to talk DH into a bigger shop rather than a boat..........don't think I'll win this one.

    I hear that all the time from my children. None of them sew, so they don't know squat about having "too much."
