Making Room For My Fabric

ONE IN. ONE OUT.

That is my new rule. So, when I go on a shopping spree and bring in 10 items, ten old things have to go.

Where are these books going? To my local library.

They will sell them at their book sales they have several times a year. I am helping them make a little money and at the same time reducing my tax obligation to Uncle Sam.

Some of the books, I hate to part with. But I don’t have any plans to reread them in the next ten years. (Too busy quilting.) And if I do, I can probably find them all on line. Somewhere. In some form. There are 50 of them. Actually there were just 49. I added one more. I like round numbers. Easier to remember.

So…. off they go… today. Hubby already loaded them in my car.

Now I have to rearrange a few other things and donate a few other things. To free up about 4-5 shelves on my bookcases. It will take me dropping “stuff” in the box and saying Bye-Bye. I know I can do it. 😀

To Make Room For My Fabric.

I want them all nice and neat. Folded and stacked in piles. Color coordinated. I don’t have bolts of fabric. Just yards and Fat Quarters. Lots of FQ’s. And it has gotten to be a chore looking for a particular print or color. I know I have it. I know I didn’t use it. But where is it!!

Time to organize my little Fabric Stash. Then it will be easier for me to create all the craft ideas screaming to get out of my head.

Is your fabric organized? How did you do it? Do tell.
