This is a little story of how a little project turns into a big one. Oh wait … have I told this one before? That is like the story of my life.
The story goes (this time!) that I was going to work on some Christmas gifts. The ones for some of our nieces and nephews. The process was going to be simple. I just needed some fabric from my “stash” and I could start.
Turns out …
This is my stash. And, this is the pile “after” I began sorting … there are actually a couple other piles behind me. Yikes.
The one good thing about this unnecessary amount of fabric is that I don’t pay full price for a piece of fabric. I love good fabric on clearance or second-hand. Mostly, I hold out on buying any until it is like a buck or two a yard. So it could be worse … even though it is horrible how much I have. Just sayin’.
So, instead of just “finding some” fabric for my project like I thought, that would take a few minutes, I had to search and search for colors that matched, and a large enough piece. I decided part way in that it would be easier to just sort it all and organize it. Which is how the little project turned into a big one.
It took hours … but I finished it.
the “scraps” … I have big plans for little squares to make my favorite patchwork quilts … someday!
Now, my sweet husband is going to help me make the craft room which has become the dump all room and is barely workable, into a workable space. Heck, I might even be able to do crafts in there! Whoo-hoo!
I love making Christmas gifts … I really really do! Even when a little project turns into a big one.
