I have been enjoying all of the show & tell links! You all are some pretty spectacular participants!
Sara at My Sewing Room showed us a fun Halloween wall hanging in progress...
With my finish of the Halloween quilt for my customer it was time for a photo shoot! With the autumn colors ramping up I took full advantage of our maple trees "showing their true colors."
The backing is pieced... thanks to the fact that the local walmart has reduced their fabric selection and carries mostly pre-cut lengths of fabric, especially seasonal fabrics such as Halloween... so I made the best of the situation and chose some fun fabrics...
Which means that it was time to turn my attention to some improv mug rugs/hand-sewn hello postcards.
The request was to have a Fishers Peak scene with a cross... I added a flower to one and a bird to the other... along with a scripture quote.
During my search for "the perfect fabrics" to be used in these hand-sewn hello mug rugs, I realized just how much of a mess I have in my fabric closet!
I'd share a picture, but I am embarrassed to show right now... I'll be sure to include one for a before and after comparison though.
What sort of sorting/storage system do you have for your stash?
How often do you reorganize?
Do you put everything away (in its proper place) when you are done?
Or are you more like me... toss in a pile wherever it might fit, and call it good?
Leave a comment... I want to hear your tips!
