Have you ever started a project and then felt like you're trying to eat an elephant? Oh my goodness! This sewing room re-do is feeling just like that!
I folded and put all of the fabric away in my new shelves, and wound up with another whole tub of fat-quarter-sized pieces (found amongst the drawers and drawers of fabrics) which I folded and sorted into color families. The sewing room is looking pretty good...however...
I waded into the guest bedroom where I'd parked all of the contents of the sewing room (pre-redo), and began sorting through things and finding places for what I wanted to keep. (Remember this picture?)
In the guest room closet I found another big box of fabric. And another big drawer full of fabric (still in the armoire in my room). And sizeable pieces of every type of stabilizer, interfacing, batting and fleece known to man. And an enormous box of scraps of every size and description.
I SHOULD be grateful for such a bounty of sewing, quilting and beading supplies. And I am, really. But just like a kid who has eaten too much candy, I've reached the point of diminishing returns. Too much stuff.
So...even more boxes will be filled with items to share with local sewing groups.
Now, I'm off to take another bite out of that elephant, hoping it hasn't grown another leg.
Gratefully (and somewhat embarrassed),
