O, friend, take consolation, for you have done a good thing! You've made me feel a little better about my OWN WISPs!

Impressive organizing, Nicole. I can't wait to see what you bring back from the retreat!

Lisa D.

Your closet looks very organized indeed. I hope it helps you get a handle on your UFOs. I for one would be happy to relieve you of your burdens... ;-)

Way to go Nicole! When our power went out for 3 days (yes three days) after Christmas, I had daylight and that was it. I pulled out all my fabric and crafts and organized everything. It still is organized and has helped me to actually plow through some projects. Interesting about finding Wuthering Heights...that is my most favorite fabric in years...and I searched all over the internet to try to build that stash. While doing so I found Craft Apple's blog http://craftapple.wordpress.com/?s=
wuthering+heights
and that was one of the first blogs I had seen. From there somehow I found sisters' choice. So, wuthering heights holds special significance! Enjoy all your "new" beauties!

Beth Dasecke

oh my goodness can I just say I have serious "stash envy" here wow you have some beautiful fabric
have fun and I cant wait to see what you get done
hugs Beth

Toni

I can imagine the feeling of accomplishment you are going through right now! GOOD FOR YOU!!! Now to keep focus and plan lots of fun on your retreat!

Karen Lee

I love what you've done here. Amazing. I would love to do something like this before that Rigid Quilter shows up here again someday.

But this didn't do me a hill of beans of good. Now I want some Fat Quarter Bundles I forgot about that were cool. Shoot...

Shopping again? ACK!

I love you, you inspire me but I think...well I have to go check my B of A account.

I often wonder what the percentage of actual finished projects is from all the quilt fabric purchased. It certainly is no where near 100%. We're all guilty of it. I long ago stopped buying fat quarters at those "fabulous fat quarter sales-get 25 for $25!" We're all guilty of what you are going through and could for sure form FA (Fabric Anonymous) groups all over the country. "Hi, my name is Jean." "Hi, Jean." "I buy fabric." "So what, so do we!" LOL

Have a great time at retreat. San Damiano sounds great. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished projects.

Cara

Congrats on getting organized. I think I have some deep seeded issue about organization. I try every few months, if it works (which is rarely) it only lasts a few weeks.
Good luck on the UFOs. I'm sure you will enjoy doing them with friendly support.
Can't wait to see your lovely work.

Beth

Good job! Look at how nicely organized and labeled all your ufo's are! You'll get some done, I'm sure you will.

pam

Wow, how nice and tidy that looks. You know me, can't say the same around here. It is nice to let go of stuff, that's for sure.

Have fun at the retreat! Can't wait to hear all about it.

Patsy

I am envious about your Wuthering Heights stash. I fell in love with it and now I can't find any except bits and pieces. I want to make sweatshirt jackets for my two DGDs and one for me, too!

Floss

I agree, when you know you are never going to finish it, pass it on to someone else. I have a couple that are getting close to that point.

Cindy

Good job, you want to come organize mine now. Let me know what you want to get rid of, could be interested. LOL

Congratulations for re-discovering the riches you had forgotten about... and may the process inspire you to create wonderful things (whether it is finishing something you've already started or wandering off and making something new with the fabulous fabrics in your newly organized stash).

Enjoy the fleeting sense of control that being organized offers (even if it's only for a little while) ~ and above all, have fun at the retreat!

I am seriously worried, as you are aware I have only just started quilting and I already have 2 half started tops, does this mean half started quilt tops breed in cupboards? I haven't got a big enough cupboard!!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

It doesn't seem saw bad to have lots of unfinished projects when you have them all organized so neatly. Great job, Nicole.

Mary Wood

WOW everything is so neat and tidy you have done a good job Nicole wish I was going to the retreat With you I will be waiting to see what you bring back with you have a safe journey.
Hugs Mary.

Perry

I am sure your retreat mates will love the bounty you are taking with you. Actually, you surely have more stash than what you are showing, right? lol...this is only for show, right? lol...if you need some more to replace what you are "giving away", holler, I can help you out some I think.
