A stash finds a home
Thank you for all your thoughts about my recent muslin journey. I put on my reality glasses and now see that my fit was not great at all. The girls definitely need more room and length. I have also decided that the hip area in the back needs more room too. I haven’t tried another muslin yet, but have been thinking hard and furiously about it as well as researching all my fit books.
In more exciting sewing news, my stash has found a home. I always had a closet for my stash, but no shelving put up.
A couple of days ago we had the cabinet maker over and he graciously put up my Elfa shelving units for me as a housewarming gift.
Yeah!!! Now here’s all my fabric, nicely folded and organized on my shelves.
As I was unpacking though, I realized that I have a huge scrap pile. I just stuffed them all in a box and will store them on the floor of the closet for now. Most pieces are too large to justify trashing. I could use them for a variety of things, like facings, etc. so I will keep them for just such “emergencies”.
Even though I hate moving with the packing and unpacking, one benefit is fondling all my fabric. It was so nice to see each and every piece. There are a few of the what was I thinking sort, but I’m ok with that. There’s always a learning curve to everything, especially fabric buying.
Happy sewing and stashing!
