why i can't keep up w/ this blog...

between mothering this little thing... and this slightly bigger one...

i have been not only buying fabric as i mentioned in a previous post, but finally getting some order to my stash. i researched ways to organize fabric stashes online and then headed off to the comic book store to get the cardboard pieces that you back them with if you are a comic book collector( very interesting folk- i might add). i folded each piece of fabric around the boards making mini bolts and am sorting them in drawers. now i can see all that i have and get to it so easily! (ps- i have a drawer devoted to bird fabric ;-)


and one of the fun things i have made w/ some of said fabric is a little bag for knitting. it is lined w/ silky material so that the yarn slides off the ball easily but doesn't roll out of your lap. it has been so nice to have my yarn and needles for the sweater i'm knitting in one little bag that i can carry with me-- i can knit while keeping an eye on e!



the pretty green one is for my sweet cousin who knit baby booties for a... and the lovely pinkish knitted bit is a preview of the sweater i'm knitting for the little lady.

Great fabrics and organizing idea! My fabric is all stackedin drawers and it does make it difficult to know what you have. Is this some fabric you ordered from fabric.com?

oh Jane...I love your love for pretty fabric! I also have a little stash but have absolutely no idea what I have due to the mass confusion that is the wad in a bottom drawer. It's terrible! So thanks for the storage idea! Also, you're oh so crafty...love the knitting bag!

I'm so glad you posted about the fabric sale the other day. I bought some!

I love the fabric organization idea. I've never seen that one!

jane, where do you buy your cute fabric? Online or in a store. I never see Amy Butler fabric in stores around here. But I do live in Huntsville :)

Oh. My. Goodness. Anna is growing so fast- my oh my- how time flies. I can't believe how much she has grown since we were in Sea Island.

Those bags are adorable! You should sell them on ETSY too!
