|1/2-yd cuts of 1800s repro's|
Stash reduction and organization is my spring cleaning focus this year. As I sort and cut and label and stack, I'm getting ready for a garage sale some time in the next month or two. It's going to take that long to sort and cut and label. Fabric will be $4/yard or less.
I'm being relentless and practical. I'm marking duplicate pieces of fabrics, entire cuts that no longer appeal to me, and pieces cut off yardage that I "over bought." I'm paring down big-cut yardage that was destined to be backings. Unfortunately, I'm finding purchases from the past year at others' garage sales. I just couldn't resist, but I don't need all of it! Some of those purchases (with tags still attached) may turn right around and be for sale again.
|larger 1800s cuts and FQs|
So far I've sorted and priced 330 yards of fabric. Nearly 70 of those yards are 1800's fabrics. Long way to go, but it's a good start. A few kits and sets of FQs are thrown in for good measure. Patterns, books, and Valdani thread need to be culled as well.
I've also been donating fabric to Goodwill. The running total is 226 yards donated so far in 2015.
Have a great weekend. My spring cleaning (here and at a daughter's house) will keep me busy, but maybe I'll make another Dear Jane block or two. I haven't forgotten about her. She's patiently waiting.
