    That is beautiful! You could definitely run a fabric store out of your house!

    Can't wait to see what it looks like with the complete wrapping.

    I do have lots of shelves for my books, too. I'm sure I have more bookcases than pairs of shoes!

    If there was such a job as an "in-home fabric organizer" I would take it!
    I would hire you today, come visit Disney and do my room. I'll go to Lowes right now....the Calvary is on it's way!!!

    They're just a tiny bit shy of 6 inches wide, and they are 4 1/2 inches high.

    Did you cut your fabrics to certain sizes and packed it tight? I have large pieces and am not sure if I should cut them up or leave them large. :)

    I went through this stage when I thought fat quarters were the way to go so I purchased a bunch. But unfortunately I also bought a lot of yards that I cut up into fat quarters. Shoulda left them whole.

    So then I got smart, and the fabrics standing on end are all in the lengths I purchased them.

    Do you sew everyday? How long do you estimate it will take you to use all your stash? I'm asking so that I can estimate how much stash I need since I don't sew everyday (wish I could!!).

    I sew every day in the winter, but now that spring is here and summer is on its way I'll be slowing down quite a bit.

    I think I can (maybe) use my stash with 5 years or so if I keep at the rate I'm going. Well, maybe 10. ;-)

    OMG - if this is what's LEFT, can't imagine what you had before "downsizing" :-o
