I'm already on my second cup of coffee, laundry has been started and it's snowing outside. Other than the snow, it's a pretty typical Sunday morning in March. I hope to spend what's supposed to be a pretty snowy afternoon up in the sewing room. Recent weekends have been taken up with Drama Teen's volleyball tournaments, so not much stitching has been going on the last three weeks.
I'm engaged in an ongoing struggle to get my stash organized.
Tweaks here and there have made some big improvements in making my stash more accessible. The hope is once I can see what's in the stash, it will get used. Those efforts paid some dividends this last week. I have a stash of Hollywood and Vine by Three Sisters for Moda that I fell in love with a while ago. (More than 8 years ago by my estimates, some places on eBay call it "vintage").
The right-most fabric on the bottom is Paris Flea Market (no idea if this is from the same time frame or if it just got put with the rest). This stash wasn't pressed and folded, but it was out on the shelves where I could see it. So when I came across a pattern while recycling my quilting magazines, I knew the absolute perfect fabrics for the project were in my stash. None of this "vintage" stash is in this week's report, but I'm sure it will be making it's debut there soon.
