ONE MORE SLEEP!! I leave for the quilting retreat tomorrow at Sunset Retreat! I am soooo excited! This is pretty much the only “cool” thing I’ll be doing to celebrate my birthday(at least until the fall when I can have a party), so you better believe I am going to enjoy every single moment and get as much out of it as I can!
Of course leaving for 4 days and making sure that I have more than enough projects to keep me busy is a big deal of its own. I have 2 for sure projects I want to accomplish over the weekend and then 2 others that I’d like to work on/get started on… these are also scrap busting projects.
As evidenced by the 6 bins over flowing with fabric… I really do need to do some major stashbusting! I’ve declared August my fabric stash busting month! I am hoping to get 4, yes FOUR quilt tops done this month 😀 A girl can dream right?
This was my view after I can home from VBS last night. I had planned on watching some friends play baseball after I got changed and rested a bit, but I got sucked into the vortex that is the disaster in my living room.
By the time that I was ready to go to bed I had sorted all the bins, folded all my yardage, decided what category the scraps fell into and had things semi organized! Go me! When I get back next week I’m going to iron fold all my scrap bits and get them their own little bin to live in. I love my scraps! But I am thinking of possibly having a destash sale on instagram… we’ll see 🙂
Right before I was ready to go to bed, I checked in the spare room/ craft room for any other fabric I had missed… I discovered this instead…
Looks like some sort of rodent decided that my vintage polyester fabrics would make a nice storage unit. Fortunately I am not attached to any of these fabrics and just trashed them. But I am a little worried about what I’ll find as I do a little more organizing and tidying before I leave! And even more worried about what I’ll find when I come back from being gone for 4 days! Oy Vey!
