    Yeah, those two gallon project bags sure do add up quickly, don't they?

    I have three large totes full....

    .....and then there is 10 or so smaller totes that house fabric lines.....

    .....and the regular stash...

    .....and my precuts.....

    .....and my Bonnie Hunter style strips and squares....

    .....and the stuff that hasn't been sorted and put away ....yet...

    .....and three totes of fabric, 2 yards or more, on comic boards....


    Soooo.....can someone please tell me why I am participating in a shop hop this month????
    Because there is a lot of new fabric out there that you DON'T have!

    I am proud of my stash of fabrics and projects. It took me many years to acquire them, along with my own individual sense of quilting style. It makes me happy that when inspiration strikes I already have the right materials on hand. Feeling pastel, check, feeling bright, check, need an emergency baby quilt, check.

    Who is putting this guilt trip on you? Think of all you are doing for the economy Turn that frown upside down and rejoice in your good fortune.

    I've been using the zip lock system for a long time. We should start a club.

    I also have a tub with those zippy bags of projects in various stages.

    Now I have to clean up the table and find a wall LOL......and that's just the beginning of what I have. I have projects in plastic storage boxes too. Then there is the yardage that we won't even discuss.

    A jelly roll here, a layer cake there, here a charm pack, there a fat quarter, everywhere a bunch of projects!
    I do believe it is time for you to brush off your writing skills and work on that 'I QUIT' letter for the office. A girl has got to have time to finish projects. RETIRE!!

    Re: Cleaning my studio and........

    I told DH my room is starting to look like a mix between a mechanic's workshop and a quilting studio. Thanks to M* and Harbor Freight LOL

    I have 3 of those rolling toolbox's, I have one near my cutting table with supplies I use there, one near my quilting frame and the other one I haven't decided what I'll use it for yet.

    I saw these workbenches in the Harbor Freight ad so yesterday we bought two of them, I am using one for my embroidery table and the other will be a design table with my computer and such.


    They may not be "pretty" but they are functional and heavy duty.

    Now THAT sounds like a blast.
    or...or.... Ziploc exchange! Everyone exchanges a Ziploc bag with a project of similar size... hmmmm.... wait... nevermind - I guess the goal is to have fewer bags

    Oh! I had to do a double take, as I first thought you posted pictures of MY projects! I have some projects in bags, and material designated for certain projects in plastic containers. And these are just projects that haven't been started. My UFO grouping is a separate matter! (Thank goodness for the 2015 Finishing Group.)

    And yesterday I started a grouping called "do something with this". The "this" are unused blocks from completed projects. You know, they can make table toppers, pot holders, coasters and so on.

    I have no excuse for getting into any kind of trouble, as I have more than enough to keep me busy.

    I too have that many bags of project as plus all my fabric that isn't bagged together as project. I would guess enough for three lifetimes.

    Shirley, just how big are those drawers??? lol

    I keep some in bags, but they slide all over the place if I have them out. Your DH's idea sounds great. I have pinned some to my design wall, then have to take them down....its a good way to have them nag me to get done. You are right about the holes, though.

    Re: Cleaning my studio and........

    DH gave me a good idea....I asked him if he saw all those bags on my table when he was in my room....of course he did *ha*

    He said I should get some bulldog clips and clip them to the bags and hang them on the pegboard. So I think that's what I'll do

    My first thought...was yeah get those hung up EYE CANDY!!!!

    You two? I keep my "to do" projects in plastic bags, too..... I recently put them all in one spot, and was blown away.... Seriously? I don't need new projects..... But.....it 's so tempting to see what an idea will look like.... You know?

    We're the new bag ladies...
