Stash Rehash [Thursday Think Tank]

Thursday Think Tank
I've been reconsidering my stash.  I am starting to rethink how I have it organized...  The more I ponder the more I want to spend a whole day in my sewing room ripping things apart and reorganizing!

For guidance, I have revisited Jeni's Art of Choosing.  Last year when I followed along I couldn't bring myself to break up some of my most precious collections...

But now I am reconsidering and I think that the time has come to break up some of my collections.  Well, some of them.  Also, instead of keeping everything in drawers or bins I am going to display at least my collection that is kept in color order.  I think SEEING the fabric may help me make my choices a little easier.  Plus, who can resist the lust over seeing all that glorious fabric beautifully laid out?  I'm thinking of doing something like this...

Hmmm how awesome if I could find the time to do this and show you photos...ah there is motivation!

Good luck with the reorganising - I expect we'll see the fruits of your labour next week?!!

Reorganising is a tough job! I eventually need to get round to doing the same thing! My fabric is just all put together with no organisation what so ever! I think I'll go by colour....once the fabric I ordered arrives =D

I'm in the reorganizing process right now, Becca, and I'm using comic book boards which is working really well!

Oh, if only you could see my stash. Not pretty! :(

Snoodles said...

My stash is a mess....I truly need to do that kind of organizing!

Oh my, I need to do the same so badly. I've bought the coolest IKEA CD shelf that is perfect for FQs. I just didnt wanna set it up, before moving all my other furniture.
