Okay, well, we once again have fleas. sigh. Been a couple years so it's time for the exterminator to come and treat the house for us...double sigh.
This means every closet must have an empty floor. For most of our closets this isn't a big deal....except "mine". The closet in Sugars' room is where ALL of my sewing stuff is stored. And, given my rush to get projects finished in April and May and my inability to lift things the last 3 weeks the remnants of those projects did not get put away properly.
So I took this morning of solitude in the house and did some organizing and clearing out of my fabric closet.

The after pictures:
Stephanie, look closely at that tub on top...
Those bigger tubs that are left in the closet are heavy and will have to be moved by Mr. Wonderful later
Now, I've been made fun of for keeping every scrap of fabric.
Turns out I have a friend who is making a quilt (or two?) out of selvages!! So as I sorted I pulled out a pile of stuff to send to her.
and a bit to send off to another blogger friend
I'm getting in the giving away fabric mood!
At the end of June I will be traveling to Shreveport to pick up 15 boxes of fabric that I have inherited from my Grandmother! Ain't no way all THAT will fit in this closet so I will keep what I like and send the rest to someone else's house! If you want to be on the list to receive some fabric email me your address!! I might post pictures and have a "raffle" once it gets here....we'll see. For now I need a nap!
