Red face Tamed my fabric stash......

Well, I thought I had a lot of fabric until I put it all on comic book boards. Of course none of my flannel is wrapped on these boards, I was afraid it would take too much room with all that nap. The rolling drawer unit to the right has fat quarters in the top drawers and a few large odd shaped scraps in the bottom two drawers. I see a LQS visit in my near future to add more to my collection.

I really need to get into the sewing room, but can't until the quilt inspector has finished her nap on my lap. She really helps me feed my addiction to The Quilting Board............that's my story & I'm sticking to it!

Looks great but we will have to wait for the quilt inspector's decision!!! It is good to know that I am not the only person whose movements are hampered by a sleeping pet.

I do have one question............how do you mark your individual fabric pieces for yardage amount? As you can see in the picture, the little return address labels are not sticking very well.

The quilt inspector is a bit upset about this new arrangement in the shelving unit. See that lower right cube of homespuns & quilting books? It used to have a few pieces of nice soft flannel laying in it & she claimed it as her very own napping area......now she has chosen a new spot on a folded up comforter in the master bedroom closet.

Oh, I do love looking at this and having instant access to my stash. I used to have it stored in 2 plastic totes, it was a real pain whenever I had to look for a certain fabric. I had to drag the tote out of the closet after rearranging all the other totes sitting on top of it, it always somehow found it's way to the bottom of the stack.......lol

Here is a picture of the quilt inspector warming her belly in front of the fireplace.
