Show Your Stash

Judy has good ideas. She wants to clean up and use her stash, so is posting pictures now, and again in January, to see if anyone can see progress. Publicly saying she is going to do something helps her (and me) keep on track, so I'm joining in. Here is my stash. I reduced it a lot in the past 2 months by sending lots of it away. I gave 52 yards of solids to a reader who wanted it, then made up 6 IBOLs. I didn't measure, but I would guess I put between 8-15 yards of fabric in each box I sent, so I now have some empty spots in my closet. I am going to get some of the stuff up from under my table into the closet so I will see it. If I see it, I am more likely to use it. So, here is my "before" picture. I guess you also have to count the fabric on the table, I'm using it, but not all of it, so it's part of the stash too.

Thanks again, Judy, for the nudge.

Hope this little exercise helps us all with stash control. Yours looks pretty good to me.

Goodness!!!! You have a lot of stash! Mine is smaller, but I still would like to use it up.....I'd love to get out of getting fabric just cuz I like it, and only get what I need for the project. A friend does that and she's SO ORGANIZED. Of course, that kind of kills inspiration....that last-minute thing you want to make, and you just happen to have THE perfect fabric.
I'm getting closer to playing with the solids Mary, that book I got will help....I'm so wanting to start with those!!!

You've got a great start on getting organized and busting stash. Good luck!

Hi Mary, I came over from Judy's to take a look at your stash. I live in Arkansas but my husband and I are in Estes Park, Colorado right now camping. We leave on Tuesday heading back home. Maybe then I can work on my stash a bit. Maybe. blessings, marlene

Nice stash. Good for you on creating the IBOLs! So generous.

I'm really impressed by your generosity in giving away so much fabric and making the IBOL pieces!

You are very generous and that is just wonderful. I really hope to make some things in 2010 that will be given away!

I like the way you have your stash organized or started being organized. I have joined Judy's challenge too and hope to reduce and organize my stash in 2010.
