    Lost treasures....

    I'm cleaning my sewing room and WOW....what treasures I'm finding. I have fabric that I had forgotten about and now it's like I have all this new fabric. I have bags and boxes of stuff that I haven't even opened. I found: buttons, fabric, pin cushions, strippers and there are still boxes to open. Six complete quilt tops that need quilted, several half completed projects and projects that I haven't even started working on yet. So I guess I need to start buying batting, that seems to be all that's missing.

    Hey Shirley - I have that to look forward to. DH has been making me a new quilting room and once he is done and I go downstairs to organize what's there - I have a feeling I will find lots of projects I had forgotten about but excited to get to making. We will have to see a photo of your new area, you know. lol! We all thrive on photos!

    Hugs,

    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

        I went through all my fabrics after Christmas and found so many things. I started making up some really quick non-quilt items and it felt so good to get some stash used and projects made that had been stored away. Enjoy your finds and have fun completing them all.

          Oooops...I found some packages that I need to send out. They are Pay It Forward from last year. I was going to mail them the last week of the month. I forgot about them - with all that happened that week. Will be getting them in the mail soon.

            Well, I, for one, am greatly relieved!

                          Sounds like fun! Glad you explained that stripper thing! Let us know how you like using them.

                          As I moved things around to paint my sewing room, I kept finding things too. I can't wait to get my fabric organized so that I know what I have.
