Thank you! And Just a Peek at My Stash

First up I want to thank my sweet friend, Carol, for thinking of my on my birthday.  She sent me this great magazine (with a pattern in it that I adore), this great bag collection pattern (you know I am such a bag lady these days), some nice magnetic snaps (I have already used one), and a flying geese ruler (how handy is that?).  Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Carol. 



Secondly, I want to thank my sewing pal, Judy, for these sweet table toppers. I just love them both!





Kelly asked us to post how we store our stash.  Sorry to say, this isn't verying exciting over here.  I share my little sewing room with a guest room that is frequently used.  There are no pretty displays.  It is just crammed in where it fits.  On the top shelf of this closet, these plastic tubs hold my fabrics.  I have florals, children, and holidays up there. 


Here is my box of patterns. 

Here is my shelf that houses books and magazines. 


Not too thrilling, but its functional.

It is a beautiful day here (the first day in many that we haven't had rain).  It was perfect for soccer.  I hope you are having a great Saturday whereever you are.  Come back tomorrow for a bit of a garage sale.  Kelly had a fun idea to sell/swap our patterns and fabrics.  I will have several pattern books, patterns, and fabrics up for sale tomorrow.
