    I asked DH if he could build me a shelving unit that I could put my stash in. I gave him the dimensions, and he did a great job! After I filled it with my stash, I called him in to see, and told him that was all my fabric, and (this is why I love him...) he said, you don't have enough!!!

    Look how organized you are! It's sure nice that your husband can do those things, and it looks like he did a really good job, too. How long will it be before he needs to build a second one? :lol:

    Thanks SulaBug - I had all my fabric in plastic containers. It's so nice to be able to see what I have!

    PS Will you admit to a teensy bit of premeditation in getting DH to make it too big for your stash? LOL Sneaky!

    He did a great job on that. And what a dear he is to suggest you need more fabric. How long is it going to take you to get to the fabric store.
