My son flew in late Wednesday night from Oregon for his friends' wedding. It's been a whirlwind visit. He left today - and tomorrow's his birthday ... safe trip, sweetie! In between talking with him when he was in between his activities, I've been attacking the stash! I have "special" fabrics for friends, boxes of fabric for our guild's cuddle quilt project. And clothes I was going to rip for the fabric for the Goodwill! Someone else will find them and do something with them - other than stick them in a box and keep them in the dark for years!
We had a S&B yesterday - it was supposed to be a simple afternoon of stitching. But it was one of those days that quilting wasn't working out! I tried to fit the border on birds of a Feather; I ripped it out last night! I think I've been attacking the sewing room to avoid more of the border. That project's definitely in "time out!"
I've also been ironing wadded up muslin fabric to cut postcard backs and foundations for string blocks. [5 yards of cut squares!]I don't have the totals yet for all this activity - I'm still in the middle of it - but there's a lot of stash heading out.
At the end of this year - I'd like to have stash that I love. If I don't love it - out it goes. Of course, I'm participating in the "No Buy" challenge in Stashbusters so nothing is coming in either!
2008 - the year Doni got a handle on the creeping stash problem!
Always in our hearts
