I haven't had any real stitching time at work this month, especially with the upcoming record review for which I have been busy preparing. So, tonight I decided to pick up Blessings Be Thine and work on it at home for a while. Here is my update... seems like forever since I have stitched on this one.
Q. Do you have an organizational system for your fabric? If so, what is it? If not, what do you store your fabric in?...and...How do people store their fabric, especially those small but potentially usable pieces? Do they sort by count? How do they label it or otherwise know what each piece is?
I don't really have any kind of amazing organizational system for my fabrics. I keep them in these Rubbermaid storage units that Mike keeps bringing home for me from WalMart. The first low cabinet you see is packed with hand dyed fabrics... and the taller one has drawers that also contain fabrics that I know are slated for specific projects...
The bottom two drawers of this smaller unit contain fabrics as well. The bottom drawer is full of hand dyed fabrics that are 36 and 40 ct only. The drawer above it is full of 32 and 28 ct hand dyed fabrics that are larger cuts and do not fit anywhere else in my storage units...
And this little Rubbermaid container is full of my standard fabrics. Most are labeled but some aren't - it can be a real adventure. Smaller pieces are in there too!
Morning Glory: Heavenly Blue. I noticed this morning glory blooming out in a pot with nasturtiums before I went to work this morning. This is the first morning glory I have seen bloom this year. I have seen plenty of closed buds in the evening though. It was still a bit overcast when I left early this morning, but I did grab the camera for this shot. It may be the only morning glory I see this year as fall is approaching.
