And this also happened last weekend:
A fellow Good Mews volunteer and former quilter gave me a bin filled with fabrics (the clear bin, to be exact – there’s more fabric in there). I’ll talk about “triaging” fabric donations in my next podcast, but this is my first pass at sorting through things. There’s lots of fun cat fabric to use to make nap mats, and also lots of fun novelty prints and some tonals. It’s helping to fill in that purple/pink hole in my stash, and more blues and greens, too. I went through and picked out some fabrics to make pillowcases with for ConKerr, too:
This is fabric for 13 pillowcases. I can probably eek out some more after I find good coordinates for it.
This intake is making me re-think my fabric organization and I’m coming to realize that I need to devote some time this weekend to finishing the cutting table I was supposed to for Christmas (yes, last Christmas, and it’s now August and the pieces are still in the basement) so I can re-arrange my storage. So I think I’ll be taking another slight detour from focusing on sewing fabric to focusing on organizing fabric.
