No More Strips!
I have FOUR of these tall rolling storage bins. FOUR! And they were all full of fabric. Lots of fabric. In only FOUR days, I managed to empty them all, sort the fabric, press and cut it all into strips. Okay, so I didn't cut it ALL. I ran across some fabrics that were of poor quality - they stick out like a sore thumb, scratchy and thick. These will get donated. I ran across some fabrics that I didn't like enough to cut up. These will get donated. And then there are lots of scraps - cutting waste - also to be donated.
I now have plastic shoe boxes full of strips sorted by color! I discovered I have a love of blue and green - LOTS of these! I need more orange - my favorite color - you can tell I use this color a lot because there's not much of it. I also have a lot of graphic black and white. Now that all this fabric is organized, I can and will really use it! I promise!
However, there is more fabric in the storage unit...
My Kaffee Fassett stash is still there. And some of my more modern fabric is there. I think I remember running out of time to pack and CRAMMING fabric into a cardboard box! Oh dear... I see lots of pressing in my future. But that will happen with time. I may (or may not) grab more fabric from the storage unit this weekend - we'll see....
I hope you have a lovely weekend!!!
