Trash and Treasures

After looking at my stash closet for weeks and dreaming of organizing it, I took the plunge. First you have to trash the place before you can get organized and find the lost treasures!

I am being ruthless. If I am NEVER going to use it, I will donate it or turn it into a charity quilt. There are some fabrics in there that I did not buy but have had for decades. Time to use or toss it, etc.

All the stuff on the sofa (bottom right) was on the upper shelf of the closet. The closet is only 8 feet long. How did I manage to get that much stuff up there. My husband helped me get it down.....he was not amused! Ha Ha.

This is where I am heading. I will let you know when I arrive!

Those 4 little piles are the equivalent of 6 sweater tubs of fabric yardage. I am using my 6 x 13 inch ruler to wrap the fabric.

There is at least a half sweater tub of fat quarters already. Saving those for another day.

I did make another wallet the other night, unfortunately i put the magnetic snap on the wrong side of the flap. Geez, I thought I was so clever working on it after midnight!
