Living in reality = DESTASH

My younger sister wrote yesterday about having to pack up her sewing room and move it to her attic.  I'm in denial, but one day soon I will also have to pack up my sewing room and figure out how to make it all fit in a smaller space.  The sad truth is that it won't all fit, but I have been living somewhere between awareness and denial of that fact for the last few months. 

Last night I decided to go through some of my fabric stash and choose some I could part with.  These are all fabrics I really like (or I would not have spent my money on them!) but I just know I can't use every last piece.  I put up some yardage and FQs over at the FabAttic, and--brace yourselves--next week I'll be giving some of it away in a mega giveaway with multiple prizes!

Speaking of giveaways...does anyone know when the next Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway event is going to be?? Did I miss it or have they just not released details yet?

Oh, and in the spirit of giving things away, if you mention the code iRead10 over at FabAttic you will receive 10% off your total purchase price (not including shipping). This will be good through the end of April. (lucky you!)

For the record, the picture above is not of my sister's sewing space or mine. It's a great example of making do with the space that is available--something we will both need to do!

This weekend I will be starting on my other sister's quilt. I actually started last night with cutting but hope to start sewing all the blocks together as well.  I'm putting the Kitchen Windows on hold until this is finished because her graduation and birthday are right around the corner!  What are you doing this weekend?



  1. I love giveaways! :)

    THUNDER festivities are on the calendar for this weekend for us! I hope the rain clears up though.

  2. You are very nice to share your beautiful fabrics.
