While I should be working on my raw edged flowers and nine patches, I mean after all, they are my June OMG....but noooo instead: SQUIRREL!!! I got back from my retreat all inspired to rearrange my entire studio! (I have no idea why!) I created a larger cutting/quilting area:
Jackson was a great help! NOT! LOL!!Okay, see that big sectional in the background....
well I sold half of it (More...cash for fabric!! LOL!!) and...
... moved my little table and chairs over there (so cozy) :
My mom would call and after the third time of dropping the phone while she was talking, she asked: "What are you doing?" Reply: "Rearranging my fabric!" She laughed reminding me that I do that every summer...in reflection, I guess she's right. But I can't tell ya how rejuvenating it is. So I spent another day rearranging ALL my fabric. Truth be told, I was hoping to go through all my fabric in hopes of reopening my Etsy shop and getting rich selling my fabric stash...LOL!! NOT!...I found myself ooohhh and auughhhh way too much and only ended wishing I had more time to create.
I emptied my entire glass cabinets and here's how I always seem to end up organizing:
I organize my STASH in a RAINBOW spectrum.
My one tip: whether it be my thread or fabric organize them in a rainbow order. I start with green.
|Why haven't I finished this Metro-Rings quilt?? Until then, I 'll enjoy it here.|
Here is my stash revamped:
And now that I'm all reorganized...I got back to creating. I ending up backing my crazy jelly roll race classroom quilt with these pearl rings I found in my stash. I quilted it with a bubble pantograph.
Today I plan to sew a green binding on it and put it in my back-to-school pile.
Last thing I want to do is organize my WIP hand projects as inspired by Karen who blogs at Moose Bay Muses especially as our July will be a busy month filled with travels and family. She made these adorable vinyl bags and though I love their colored zippers, I'm pretty sure mine will be organized into gallon-size ziploc bags, put into a cute basket, of course. Thanks for the inspiration Karen.
So that's what I've been up to this week...no Etsy shop reopened...but never the less, reinspired am I.
