Show us your stash!


WOW, this is a great idea! Yes, Judy has done it again, come up with another brainstorm! Visit her blog: Patchwork Times, to see what it's all about and then join us.

This is a picture of what I refer to as the IKEA Towers. I stacked these so high that I had to go out and buy a ladder to access the top drawers! The opening you see is the entrance to my cave quilt room! Those boxes above the door opening are pizza boxes that were purchased at Gordon Food Service and I store BOM's and smaller projects in them along with the pattern, magazine or book from which it came. If you double click on the photo to make it larger, at the top right to the right of the pink/orange striped bag, you can see the clear plastic doggie bag containers where I have organized squares of fabric ranging from 1.5 inches to 6 inches. They come in real handy when I am working on a scrap quilt! and there is more fabric out in the garage that I can't move in until I use some of this up!

I am thinking that looks pretty good! Fabric always looks good!Ü

I am trying to figure out how to fit 8 dressers into my new room.Eck. It isnt going so well. I am wondering if I can just kick a kid out.

I came over from Judy's. I can't post a picture of my stash right now because we're on vacation but maybe I'll be brave when I get home and take a picture. Maybe. :) Enjoyed the visit. blessings, marlene

The Ikea Towers is the perfect name. Your stash certainly does live in a penthouse suite. If it keeps growing you can either put in an elevator or get one of those sliding library ladders ;_

Nice stash. I hadn't thought about using the space over my door. Hmm...

Wow! Your stash (and organization) is amazing! I really want to see into your cave, too - I'll keep reading back to see if it appears. ;-)

The Ikea towers are cool! I might have to borrow that idea for another crafting area of the home! Great stash!

I love the IKEA towers you are using. I joined Judy's challenge too and hope to reduce my stash and get it organized for 2010.
