I am using comic boards, purchased on eBay (eCrack for me!) for the larger cuts and index cards for fat quarters and less. I have decided to put small scraps into a pile for later whacking with my accuquilt cutter. With some soothing music, I am thoroughly enjoying the process. Unfortunately, life always seems to interrupt my bliss and I find myself running to an eye appointment for my daughter and a doctor appointment for me. I will get back to my folding and my reminiscing! Soon I will try out my new longarm. But I promised myself I had to finish putting things away before I began a new addiction.

Rediscovering old loves and making room for new ones
Last night I started refolding my stash for a more uniform look. My dream, when we built these shelves, was to walk into my sewing studio and see the wall of color and beauty. I had no idea the time it would take to refold everything. This drop in the bucket is only one smallish box. I have at least 15x more to do. My dream is turning into an admission of a serious fabric collecting (hoarding sounds dirty) problem. Today I folded 24 fat quarters from two gorgeous lines that I forgot I had. I wonder what I am going to find as I dive into each box.
