I do like things in their place but I have been guilty of just shoving bits and pieces of fabric I had been using in a bag to put away properly later. Well today later finally came. I tipped the bag out and sorted it and pressed the fabric and stacked it and put it away. I also added to the stack by going through a couple of other fabric boxes. I still have a suitcase full of fabric which needs sorting but I've had enough for today. Thank you!
By a quilter's standard, I do not have a huge stash of fabric but believe me, it is more than enough. I feel guilty that it languishes in the cupboard when it should be used. I signed up for The Splendid Sampler (along with thousands of others) and I intend to sew from the fabric I have. I think a lot of people are using this stitch-along as a stash buster.
I'm glad to say I also discarded a few items to the donation pile. Some embroidered squares and a felt piece with biblical scenes on it. I was given these items because people just tend to give me stuff but it's time they moved on.
I also unearthed these blocks from swaps I was in quite some time ago. I just can't get motivated by them. When I look at them here I do like the log cabin blocks but perhaps not enough to make more blocks for an actual quilt. I'll think of something one day.
Now I have to cook. It's humid and I don't want to be in the kitchen but I am on a budget. Iceland is expensive I have discovered so every cent saved is welcome. Vegetarian shepherd's pie tonight. As I am vegetarian and a shepherd I guess every pie I make is just that. In reality, I am just emptying the crisper and putting mashed potato on top.
