Have you checked out Rae Ann's other blog, Stash Manicure yet???
Well you should! Get on over there! Check it out!
Just click on the button up there in my blog's upper right hand corner!
So many ideas to bust that stash out!
It is a good resource for ideas for quits/sewing period.
Different folks contribute their ideas, ways and means, etc.

I have made very good progress in trimming up my stash in the last year.
Doing up my 'new' sewing room was the catalyst for me. It is small!
Truly had to make some tough calls on holding on to 'stuff' !
So I passed a lot on to others to use to create.
I also sewed up many a small infant and toddler quilt for donations.
Made pillow cases, aprons, purses and totes.
I have also been cutting ...squares of different sizes, strips of different widths.
My thinking is I will use them up more quickly this way.
I am using Bonnie Hunter's idea also..look at the fabric only as color not the print!

I do mostly smaller projects now.
I think I can make better progress using what I have now that I can see most of it...;-)
Out of site out of mind is very true for me!!

I use the closet...( more in since this pic was taken)!!

...also the cabinets/baskets behind sewing area is fabric filled.

Okay must confess I do have two large tubs still in the hall linen closet...BUT...they are clear and easy for me to pull out! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Now I must give a big THANK YOU Shout Out to Rae Ann!
I have been lucky to be picked for her first

I borrowed her pic of my gift!!!
