Given Enough Fabric I Could Rule the World

Organizing my fabric stash is almost as fun as sewing with it.  I am always looking for better ways to store my fat quarters.  I use these most often when making baby quilts and since I make a lot of those, I like having the fabric handy.

I love to up-cycle, so when one of our sons left this CD rack when he moved out, I grabbed it.

Of course this wouldn’t hold them all, so I found a couple racks at an estate sale and placed them behind the door. This just makes me smile!! The shoe rack hanging on the door is for all my scraps.

Found this at another estate sale and
it is perfect for all my gingham fabric.Room 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then there is my closet…for all my yardage.  I am a lucky gal!

Can I Buy a Vowel?

scrabble 2

I bought an old Scrabble game at an estate sale for $5. It sat on the kitchen table and over the course a week I just started playing with words. I put CREATIVITY in the center and then added words that reflected my hobbies and loves. I had a $5 square frame from a previous week’s yard sale trip. Prefect fit and looks super cool hanging near my sewing area.
