I've been unpacking and sorting fabric all day. And adding lots more to the guild box too. I think there are 2 or maybe 3 more boxes to unpack and sort and them I'll be thru with that task. Then it's on to finding a place for everything else that needs to go in my sewing room. No pictures until I finish but here's a teaser.
This is what I found when I turned around from the table where I was sorting and folding to add another stack the the cabinet. At least she picked the cream/beige/tans to curl her mostly white self on and not the stack of black on the shelf above.
And to clarify something from my previous post. I have not been washing and ironing all this stuff right now! I did that over the coarse of several months after I brought it home with me 3 years ago. But I have been doing a quick measure of what I'm giving away as I fold it to fit neatly in the box. Just because I'm curious to see the total of what goes out when I'm done. And okay so I'm also a bit anal. :-) BTW, the count's getting pretty close to 200 yds now!
Right now I can barely hold my head up at times so ironing is definately not something I'm doing this weekend! I've gotten into a pretty good routine. Get a box from shop, take a nap, unpack a box, take a nap, sort and fold fabric, take a nap, put fabric in cabinet, take a nap. Repeat above for 9 boxes . Now if I could just quit coughing! I coughed so much one time this afternoon I pulled something in my back. Good thing I have a prescription for muscle relaxers on hand! After one of those and another nap my back just twinges every once in a while if I turn wrong.
Okay now, somebody needs to 'fess up! I want to know which one of you has been sneaking into our shop and adding fabric to my boxes. It's only been about a month since I packed this stuff up and I swear I unpacked fabric today that I'VE NEVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! Lots of fat quarters I don't ever remember buying. A 2 yd. cut and a 5-1/2 yd. cut of the SAME pretty floral. And I have no clue where they came from! And with them also 5 yds. of a tiny floral on cream that will make a great background to go with the other. And half yard cuts of 6 different batiks. What's with that? I NEVER buy 1/2 a yd of anything. I either get a FQ or I get at least a yd. The words, "I'll take 1/2 yd. of each, please." are just not one's you'll ever hear from me. So where did they come from? You think my FQs have been breeding in the boxes and maybe the 1/2 yds are ones that haven't "hatched" yet?
