Wow, I really enjoyed reading all of your comments on the last blog post. It seems that many of you are kindred spirits! One common theme that coursed through a lot of the comments is that we have a LOT of stash! Of course, many of you probably have a better plan in mind than I do for that stash!
I did a random drawing for a box of miscellaneous cuts of fabric, including a lot of neutrals, and the winner of that drawing is:
Vivian of Bronx Quilter blog. Vivian said her heart really belongs to scrappy, so I hope she'll find these fabrics useful.
Vivian, please email me so that I can arrange shipment of your package.
And then I did something I don't often do, and that is to select two other winners because they mentioned a specific type of fabric that I want to reduce in my stash .... batiks.
Nini - said she buys batiks by the armload because she loves them so much.
Marilyn - said she loves batiks.
If both Nini and Marilyn will email me their postal addresses, I'll get their packages off to them. These two packages may take a wee bit longer as I have to pull out the batiks. I think I can get to them without having to have someone help me, but it might have to wait until I get a strong back over here. I'll keep you posted on the status of your shipment.
I was talking to Darlene this week and mentioned that it is the "color wall" fabrics that I mostly want to reduce. I will probably have another blog post about that soon where I ask you the color that you like/need the most in your stash. Stay tuned!
Thank you to everyone for commenting. I think I'm beginning to get a grip on what I need to do to tame the beast. I surely don't want to have to move all of this when I retire, but I want to keep enough so that I will have plenty to work with for a few years. What a conundrum!!
