Don't you love looking at photos of other people's fabric stashes? Ooh I do.
I missed my studio while I was away for the whole of summer. I missed being around my fabrics and crafty bits.
I had a selection of crochet yarn to keep me company, but I still missed my fabric.
To kick off what I hope will be a creative year, I decided to sort my fabric stash. This old wooden set of filing shelves was previously storing Townmouse t-shirts and bodysuits. That's not nearly as inspiring to look at as sorted and neatly folded fabric.
There's an eclectic mix of fabric here. This stash goes back to the '80s and '90s. As in all things, taste in fabrics has changed somewhat, as has my liking for certain things.
I've even retrieved the bits of my stash that had been relegated to shoe boxes in the garage.
The gathering of fabric from all corners of the house also unearthed other things, like half finished quilt tops that had been long abandoned.
And you know what conclusion I reached after all this ironing and folding and sorting? My fabric stash is not that excessive for someone who has been collecting for 3 decades. Either that or these shelves hold a lot of stuff. What do you think?
