I went through my complete stash and organized it to the max. I also posted some fabrics that I've been holding onto in the event I find something cute to make them into. Unfortunately, I found that my tastes have changed. (They are on PR if you're interested)
Using the stash management method on PR, I cut small swatches of all the fabrics, measured, estimated their content if I didn't know what it was and filed them neatly in a notebook. Then I folded and sorted into plastic tubs based on fabric type- i.e.- knits, silks, coating, lining, etc. Now I'm all ready to go through my patterns and do the same.
I haven't figured out how to sort the patterns so that I remember what I've got. I guess I could make a copy of the detail page with yardages but I'd like to find a better way. If only I could scan. Do you think taking a picture of it and downloading it into a photo album, like my BWOFs, would work? I'll take suggestions.
Also, since learning to fit my body type, I threw away all those UFOs that I knew weren't going to meet with my satisfaction. Well, I donated the fabric. After getting over feeling guilty, it was like Christmas when I found fabric I didn't know I had and it was still in style- yippee.
It's now time to prioritize my sewing. Lance needs some shirts, I have 3 projects to finish, 2 pants that need re-hemmed and a coat to make. Guess that's prioritizing...
I'm also knitting up a storm. Due to a short trip to San Antonio, I think I might finish some of those projects on airplanes and in airports. I'll post pictures of the projects as they progress. BTW, I can't believe it's November.
