|AFTER--much more organized|
My guild will benefit as I will hold a private sale for them in early August. I've done this twice before and they have loved it--great prices for them and I get rid of some of this excess. The guest bed is piled high with the cast-offs. What doesn't sell gets donated to our guild challenge in October. If I have time I plan to tackle the 400+ books I've accumulated, some I haven't opened in 10 years--guess I don't really need those titles.
There is still more work to do. A bunch of "fabric groupings" I thought I would one day make into a quilt need to be "deconstructed"--broken up so the fabrics can be returned to the closet with like colors. As it is, I have at least 15 "project" bags with ongoing quilts that I really want to finish.
It was fun and tiring and I'm glad this part is over. Tomorrow we "retreat" together for sewing, basting, fun and fellowship. Quilting friends are the best!
Here are some more of the string swap blocks I've completed. The last 2 will be done tomorrow so I can move on to other things:
|Jane--bright, scrappy, my favorite colors|
|Katherine--Halloween, no Halloween fabrics|
