Because you asked!

I mentioned taking a few photos of the fabric drawers, and because First Born asked to see, I felt it necessary to do so *smile*. I am also still very much thrilled by looking down into perfectly organized drawers and seeing exactly what I have, fabric -wise! Doing all this re-organization also has made me realize I NEED to go on a fabric diet. "Yes, a fabric diet is definitely needed", I told myself that as I folded, refolded, cut odd sized fabric pieces into useables- putting the rest into the scrap bin container. Naturally, no sooner did I tell myself this would be a good thing than I walked into work yesterday to find the newest Jo Morton collection had arrived. I tried hard not to look and kept remembering the following mental pictures:

1. The stuffed fat quarter drawer #1




2. Stuffed FQ drawer #2

3. First drawer of half -yard cuts:


4. Second drawer of half-yard cuts:


What I'm not showing you is the drawer of straight quarter of a yard cuts (not too many- not a measurement I'm fond of!) and third yard cuts. Both share one larger drawer, and there is room for more- IF I liked those cuts! I go for the bigger is better school of thought! I'm also NOT showing you the 2 full drawers of one-yard cuts...just imagine the above photos and think more of the same!

So the organization is complete, I'm happy...and I am promising myself no more fabric until I use up (most of) what I own! There! I've said it. Now I have to stay honest and stick to it. Wow..a resolution and it's not even the New Year .

You have a beautiful stash though, nonetheless. I too am on a fabric diet.

Meredith said...

Wow that is tidy. Mine is all in 1 place in 1 closet. Lol. That is why I just spent a year on no buy.

Oh, how pretty!! Mine is not nearly so organized. At least I have is separated by color, and folded, but yours looks fantastic!!!

I use drawers to organize my fabric too - although some of the drawers have to be used for my clothes. Yours looks so neat and organized - wonderful! Mine aren't quite as neat anymore, but with the drawers closed, you wouldn't know!

Wonderful organization, and such pretty colors. But I think you're not quite done filling out your stash. You're a little low on yellows. I give you permission to go shopping!

ForestJane said...

Wow, so organized!

I'll even pay for postage if you want to find a new home for some lol

Great colors and prints in your stash! Ease to reach, it seems. Mine are in plastic bins - and in ziplocs for current projects.

Thanks for sharing!
