Much like Quilt Harvest Judy L's Show Your Stash Challenge was just the catalyst I needed to bring this neglected journal out of hibernation. I have been meaning to do this for about six months now but life kept getting in the way. Given that I can't remember what I had for dinner last night remembering the last nine months is impossible but major highlights include Christmas, changing jobs, getting a promotion within 4 weeks of the new job, moving Jasper's office into town and three 14 hour car trips to the WAY north to see my sister.
Mentioned in the summary above Jasper's office moving into town has had a direct impact on my stash making this challenge very good timing. As mentioned here; the kitchen table has been my only place to sew and the stash has been in bins in the basement (it has grown to twice as many bins since that picture was taken). What was Jasper's office will hopefully one day be the Master Bedroom but some foundation issues need be addressed (hopefully next summer) which is holding up the move of the bathroom and thus the finishing of the Master Bedroom. In the meantime that room was empty, with empty shelves begging for use so the bins got emptied and plan was formulated to make temporary sewing table. The plan is to build the supports and table on the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend and between now and then clean up the shelves. As I unpacked the totes, I put the fabric into general colour groupings but there is still a lot of work to do.
