The Clean Up Has Begun

Well, I have finally started the great undertaking of colorizing my fabric in my quilt room.  No easy task.  I have a large collection of fabric and there are just so many ways to go with the color, do I separate polka dots, stripes, homespuns, novelty, civil war.  Well, I keep going round and round with it.  I decided to separate the homespuns and the Japanese novelty prints, everything else gets thrown into a color.  I took a couple pictures when I started last week, I had already started pulling fabric off the shelf.



100_1656I had started the reds in this picture as you can see and below is one shelf of my finished homespuns, although I am finding more mixed in.  I thought I had more of these.


I have worked probably about a total of 3 days.  I had a friend helping me Saturday night (Thank you Jan!!!!), that was nice.  So here is what I have so far.

As you can see, blues, reds, greens, blacks, browns and lights have all found there homes.  The floor is covered in fabric still and I have not gone through the shelf on the left.

I have not been sewing or crafting at all really.  Just trying to clean up.  I can’t believe I have so many reds, I knew the blues would take up some room, since they are my favorite.

I am off now, maybe this will get others motivate to start cleaning. Then again, maybe everyone will see just how crazy I am for doing it.

Funny, you should say that, one of Natalie's friends said "Let's go to your house, I have some money, we can get some fabric," I thought it was cute, but then realized how rediculous I am.
