    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.

    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.

    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

    Well....my DH said bulldog clips.....ummm he meant binder clips. I tried both.....the bulldog clips come off the bags, the binder clips work well.

    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 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.

    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!!

    Mine are in tote containers (well some of them, anyways). I think that's a great idea to put them in see thru bags - going to put them on my shopping list. I do have a list of my projects but it seems when I cross one off, a few more have sneaked onto the list in the meantime. I don't know how that happens - there must be a little person somewhere here that buys the fabric and sneaks it onto the list. For a lot of my fabric I do know what I want to use it for but then there is also quite a bit that I just loved the print and it followed me home. Did you know there are a gazillion shades of teal out there? I think I have them all! OH! And a gazillion different polka-dots, too many to count red/whites, and miniature prints. I even have a list that is titled "IN MY LIFETIME". The other list is titled "ARE YOU KIDDING?"

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

    (Hanging my head with you)

    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????
