So, rather than be productive today (where's the fun in that?!), I decided it was clean-the-studio-out day! My fabric storage is out of control, and messy too.
I have a vicious habit of hoarding absolutely everything - just look at this piece that has fussy-cut hexies cut from it, This was used on Bouquet Royale. Do you really think I will use the rest of the fabric?!
I went through every stack of fabric, pulling out those that I know I won't use. I applied that "cleaning the closet" rule we all hear. If you haven't worn it in 12 months, toss it. Mine was more like "if you don't think you'll use it in 5 years, maybe toss it". The toss table got much fuller than this.
The upshot of my cleaning (I have fabric coming to start a new quilt...gotta make room!), is that I get to have a little sale. I have some gadgets, some fabric, and some partially constructed goodies that really just need a new home. Please email email@example.com if there is anything you'd like. I will combine shipping if possible if you want more than one item. Paypal if possible.
You all probably know I am a template junkie. I cleaned out 4 that I don't use often enough.
