I am in fabric overload! It is such a shame that this quilter did not use up her lovely stash. BUT I am sure that our guild will put this all to use that would make her very happy. We do a pillow case drive for Christmas and a quilt drive and placemats for Meals on Wheels for Easter and a lot of these I am sure will be seen in these projects benefiting the communities.
I have had to press and fold each piece as this was all crammed into bins, totes, and drawers. Very time consuming but it looks so much more exciting all neat and ready for happy hands to pet and chose.
There were a lot of blues - my daughter even took a huge tote full of blues and aquas. Everything is broken down by color, low volumns, whites, beiges, solids, novelties, and textures (example: flannel and wool). So I have a lot more totes scattered around the house - this is just one table full.
I have a few guild members coming in to do a little early 'selection' as this won't be presented (along with more magazines and books - yes on one of my tables as well) until our November meeting as our October meeting is a guest speaker and we want to give the full meeting to her. I, also, need this purged a little as I have 5 large garbage bags of fabric yet to go thru and I need room.
Of course I had help. Moe's love for boxes led him to the one for tossing the scraps - bits too small for a nice little bundle to work with. These will be my takes from this whole project. I like to be challenged with tiny bits.
Bella chose the chair near by. Occassionally I saw an eyelid flicker for a peek to see what I was doing. And yes, she if FAT!
There are some new buttons on the side bar and I hope to get to a few of them - I need a break and some fun. Carole always shares some fabulous projects, recipes, card making and stitching during October. She has a row-a-long quilt this year and I really want to make one.
