Fabric hoarder!

February 28, 2011

Is there a show about hoarding fabric on A&E or a show where friends & family have an intervention about how your hobby has gotten out of control??? Well I’m going to tell you right now. . . I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM!!! (Denial is the first stage right?)

So one of the main steps in the StashPact11 is to organize your stash. . and I kind of organized it in January. . .

Stash 2011.01.12

I think I half ass’d it so I went to Costco and grabbed these awesome bins and started folding per Jen’s tutorials from In Color Order. Oh the dining room table filled up fast, at one point I told my husband that if I ever say I need more fabric that he should just tie my ankle to the toilet.

Folding

Into the bins they went. . .

And I realized that my stash is weak in Purples, Yellow, and Orange.

Yellow, Orange, Purple

And I have a lot of charms. . . . 5×5 squares of fabric. I think I’m going to make single girls out of them. . . something has to be done. I have to tackle organizing my scraps into colors next. Bleh! Organizing is a pain but worth it in the end.

    You really do have tons of fabric wow that’s impressive. At least you never have to wait to start a project until you buy some new fabric lol.

    My stash was weak in purples too… and oranges… and somehow I managed to make that justify a $57 Fabric.com purchase last week! I am bound and determined to get back on that wagon this month and stay there! I have no excuses now. Back to following the rules! 🙂

    And I’ll get your pyrex out on Thursday … maybe find you some extra oranges/purples as well. 🙂

    It sure is pretty to look at all of it folded up like that. I always have mixed feelings looking at my stash. Part of me loves it & loves just looking at it, but another part of me cant believe I have so many projects to do. Good job on tackling your stash.

    you’re going to make single girls? I’m not sure what that means… it sounds exciting, though.
