My thoughts have always been that someone with a neat stash really never sews but just collects fabric. My friend, Elaine, has proven that I am wrong. These photos were taken with my cell phone, with her permission. The fabrics look more dull and washed out in these photos than they are but look how neat and orderly this stash is.
There’s something not right about these pictures.
- It’s just too neat. I know she sews. I see quilts she makes. She makes a lot of quilts. Maybe there’s a secret room somewhere in her house where she sews and she merely pretends this is her sewing room. Think that’s possible?? I maybe should have explored more.
- There’s no lime green fabric in this stash and I’m almost sure there was no purple fabric. Is it possible to quilt without lime green or purple? I’ll have to think about that some more.
Her stash looked so organized in real life but these pictures look even more organized than I remember and it was just a day or so ago that I saw the stash in real life. I’m suddenly feeling like I shouldn’t go downstairs and look at my stash for fear I’ll realize how totally unorganized I really am.
Maybe I need a friend whose sewing room looks worse than mine. Then I wouldn’t feel so bad. But . . there’s probably no one whose sewing room looks worse than mine. Do I really care? Not too much! 🙂 But, if I woke up tomorrow morning and found my stash this organized, I’d be really happy!
