Unpacking, it ever going to end?

Several hours today was spent walking up and down two flights of stairs carrying box after box of fabric. All of my storage cabinets are packed and unfortunately there is still more boxes of fabric. I think I need to rethink a little bit. Maybe move some of the more obvious winter stuff back into a plastic container. I know that I mentioned yesterday that I have a lot of black stuff but there is also a lot of gray and navy blue. It has been lots of fun seeing fabric that I had forgotten that I had purchased. Amazingly, there has been very little of "What was I thinking when I bought that!". I did purchase the majority of the fabric when I was working in an office and it doesn't really apply to my lifestyle now but I don't know how I can part of all that lovely fabric.

One thing is for sure. I can see an end and I will be sewing again shortly. I'm ready. After handling almost every piece of fabric I own, I already dreaming about what I can do with this piece of fabric or that piece of fabric. I hope I find time to do it. My son was looking through the fabric and asking about some of it. I tried to talk him into learning to sew but he told me that was for girls. Wonder what he's going to do in home ec next year when he has to make a draw string bag? Although, he has agreed to help with a quilt. We'll see how that goes.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Do you have anything like fleece that takes up a lot of room that you can put in bins? Otherwise, I'd just take all of one color, say all your black, and put it in bins and see if that reduces it enough. Glad you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

    I should go sew, now that I think of it. LOL.

  2. Sandra, yes, I'm thinking about removing the fleece, flannel, and corduroy. That still may not be enough.
