We Have A Winner!The winner is B Greene who really cracked me up with her comment. Her organizational system sounds as fancy as mine is. Here's what she said about her stash.....
"Mine is a wreck! Well, part of it anyway. I have a bin of 5-inch charm squares; a couple of bins of 2.5-inch strips. I also have a bin just for 2.5-inch squares that are soon to become a scrap vomit quilt. But then, I have bins of "good" scraps and "really good" scraps and lesser-quality scraps. I have a bag of strings. There are snippets somehwere and FQs everywhere. Just a wonderful, beautiful mess.
BUT - all my FQ bundles abd precuts are nicely stored and waiting patiently for their time to shine! Thanks for the chance to add this wonderful bundle to the mix!"
Happy August! I can't believe it's already August, can you?! I feel like once we reach August the year is pretty much over....August will fly by because it's the last unofficial month of summer and back to school time....September is just a filler month....and then October is the beginning of the whirlwind of holiday months that will catapult us into the new year. So the year is pretty much over in my book.
Anyway, you may have already read in my last few posts that I've been going through my very disorganized fabric stash during the last couple weeks frantically looking for the right fabrics for my next project - Vintage Valentine. I finally got so sick of the mess and chaos and fabric shoved in 10 different cardboard boxes in every room of the house that I decided to do something really wild.....I've started sorting my stash and organizing it by color all in ONE PLACE! Isn't that a wild idea? I've also realized that my fabric stash isn't quit as vast as I thought it was. I found so many gorgeous fabrics in my stash that are totally my style and my favorite colors but I only have 1/2 yard of them. What's up with that???!!! Why did I do that to myself???!!! So.....my new rule is that if I like a fabric (even if I have no idea what I'm going to do with it!) I'm going to take at least a yard of it.....or better yet two yards....or possibly five if I really, really like it!
Soooo.....as I was doing all of this sorting and organizing I found this bundle of "vintage" Amy Butler fabrics from the Ginger Bliss Collection. This collection is very out of print, very hard to find and very sought after. And I'm going to give this bundle of 10 fat quarters to one of you!
Just leave a comment to be entered to win....I'd love to hear how you organize your fabric stash. I need some ideas on how to get mine all sorted out. Or, I'd love to hear how your stash is as messy as mine used to be. Or what is your dream plan to organize your fabric? Please leave your comment by midnight on Monday, August 13. I'll pick a winner on Tuesday, August 14, 2012.
Good Luck and Happy Sewing,
P.S. Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment on my last post telling me it was o.k. to abandon a project! I thought I was going to be scolded for not finishing what I started - LOL!
