Resolutions, we all make them, we all break them. This time I am really trying to keep this one. What am I talking about? the resolution to sew out of my closet. Those of you who have ventured into my closet know what I mean. Sort of like close encounters of the fabric kind. Last summer 2 darling helpers, Hannah Young and Carly Kies, were diligent in organizing my stash. It is now in color coordinated boxes or hanging where I can see it. They even sorted the hanging fabric according to color! SO NOW as I am sewing I must choose fabric from my mini-store No excuses. So far, so good. I have made 3 baby quilts for gifts and 4 pairs of pajamas for granddaughters. What a great feeling! And a fantastic challenge. I had lots of fun finding trims that coordinate with fabric and making it work. There are a few exceptions to my new rule. I can buy notions, such as thread, elastic. But lace and ribbon must come from my stash, for now. I'll let you know how I am doing... Enjoy these photos of my efforts.
