Today, I’m showing you work in progress. I am not going to show you the inside of the house where this came from. I’ve done that before and, frankly, I’m tired of embarrassing myself. I’ll show you the new sewing area when it’s done — it could be months from now — no, I’m not kidding. This is all fabric that I’ve taken out of my bedroom that I plan to put into storage. I do plan to give some of the fabric that’s downstairs (yes, there is more fabric in my house!) to my friend Connie for a project she’s working on. Whatever she can’t use for her project, I’ll ask her to pass on to our mutual friend Joan for her Project Linus quilts. They are both so sweet and generous and they do a lot of community service work.
Connie is actually making quilts for each member of her son’s high school graduating class. Now, you may think that she’ll never get this done (even though they live in a rural area and her son’s graduating class if fairly small compared to city schools) but I beg to differ. I know she will because she’s done it twice before — for her two older children!
I’ve covered the boxes with an old sheet. I’ll drive my car as close to the deck as I can and load her up, then take all of this over to the trailer. Then I’ll get the fabric from downstairs. (I think I start storing the Christmas stuff back over there again too. This house is just too small!) I need more of these Rubbermaid boxes to be able to finish getting all of this stuff from upstairs. Yes, it’s that overflowing with my creative stockpiles. I have a lot of stuff in bags right now and that just won’t work for storage.
At least a start has been made and just maybe I can see a small glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
