You see, I have a lot of fabric. And when I work on a project I just have this habit of pulling out more and more fabric and spreading it all around so I can see what I have to choose from. And then I push it all aside and put it in piles here and there.
There is actually a full size pool table behind this stack of bins and bolts. You can see how big my problem is?
So Big K got home and said I need to just move it all out of there, organize it and box it up, paint, put up some new shelving and then put it all back in. But then she kept saying "How did this happen?"
And I am not making this up: I started stuttering every time I tried to explain. Now I have never had a stutter in my life and at my age I consider this a frightening new development. One that I really should do something about.
Then she went in the laundry room and announced "You have more fabric in here too you know!"
Yes, I do know. There is a whole wall of fabric in there and she knows it because she does her laundry in there every week and I think she was just trying to rub it in. Or maybe she thinks it's funny to hear me stutter.
Now I know that this looks like a scene from "Hoarders" but believe me, most days you can walk straight through my house without running into a bit of clutter, my bed is made every day, the laundry is folded and put away and the dishes are washed almost every single night. I even tidy up my outdoor room almost every day. It's just this fabric thing.
So I signed up for the September Stash Buster Challenge at The T-Shirt Diaries. She even had a little tutorial for how to organize your fabric. I thought it was really nice but in my case I think investing in a lot more plastic bins is going to be more practical. So if I finish clearing this out tomorrow and bust out the paint I should be all reorganized and ready to go by September. Right?
Or if I move it all aside for now I could get that beach bag made and deal with it later? Maybe I can learn to live with a stutter. Right?
