Neat shelves, favorite mottle......

Yesterday I carried the batiks that I had finished cutting upstairs in my effort to clean up the basement.  This is what the pink, red, and purple shelves look like now that they have been neatly stacked again.  This does not keep me from using the fabrics.  I just take the whole stack off the shelf and go through it when I want a piece of that color and then it goes back neatly stacked again.  This is one of the few things I have control of at this point and it is very therapeutic.  I love going through the stacks and revisiting old friends.
Two of the shelves that I didn't pull fabrics from for the kits were the multicolors.  Today I took down the fabrics off one shelf and went through them.  This is one of my favorite mottled fabrics that was on it.  I neatly stacked them as I went through them so one more shelf is done.  The rest of the day was errands and cleaning.

That multi-colour fabric - I was convinced it was a photo of your garden, until I read the words alongside! I can't imagine cutting it up, but I'm sure you will make something spectacular with it.

I love the multi colors like that one.
They add so much excitement to a project.

I wish I could be that neat. I was just thinking I need to do something different with my stash. Maybe this next week the Cleaning Tornado is coming to visit again. Chris

what size of fabric is that that you have folded so neatly in flat folds.

I don't blame you - that mottled is gorgeous! And the neatly stacked, oh, so organized fabrics are a joy to behold - a still life artwork.

"Revisiting old friends" -- I know just what you mean. I have some favorites that I take out, ponder what I could make from them -- and put them back! Many times when I shop my stash I find just what I need for the project at hand.

Wow I wish I was this neat! Your stacks are such a uniform size. What measurements do you cut your fabric to?

Hmm, is "shelf envy" possible? ;-)
Organization is grand!

Ah, Fabric therapy...sure to sooth and calm.

The mottled print resembles your little colorwash quilts.

Oh, it must be wonderful to work in your sewing area. Such glorious colour jumping off every shelf!
Looking at your shelves really makes me want to get rid of some books and take over a bookcase for fabric! Much easier to see what you have than having it in containers.
