Taking time to organize the stash

If you've been following these Kronicles of karen, you'll remember my 'space bag' attempt to waterproof my customer quilts and stash in preparation for a hurricane - and the praise that we were spared - well, those bags sat in my studio for well over two weeks before I could even attempt to unpack them...I had several customer quilts that had to be taken care of first...and I knew that it would be a chore to put up all the goodies in these bags!

My solution was to order more Fabric Organizers and take a day off to get my stash in order. I can tell you it was soooo worth the effort! Not only is my fabric nice and neat in the wire Closet Maid drawer system I have under both my ironing station and my cutting stations, (see my studio webshot album for more details) but I now have visions of future quilts dancing around my busy brain.

I'll share with you later the logic behind my organization and the plans that I have, but right now I need to get ready for my guild day -- I'm sooo fortunate to have several area quilt guilds to attend. Today it's Mainland Morning, in Texas City and tonight it's Island Quilters in Galveston.
