My favorite thing in this time of the year: cleaning my atelier.


Earlier this year I and J were moving to a bigger house totally out of the blue. We're pleasantly excited yet physically exhausted after this sudden movement. (Yes, here's a not-so-legit excuse why I was not around recently.)

Thanks to the extra room available I was able to move my atelier at home. I am super stocked! However, after taking care of most of my craft materials I encountered this huge mountain stacks of fabrics (and balls of yarns). Thanks to J I was able to organize some of my fabrics in such a neat way (by the way.. I truly love this fabric organizer made out of a crib!) but as you might guess I still have so many rolls of fabrics in the box with sad faces. What about yarns? I couldn't even start yet. I am gonna have to spend good chunks of time organizing those in this summer. Hopefully I can show you some improvement soon.

Isn't it so funny whenever I begin to work on new projects I can't find the right one to use from my stock? I always end up with getting more stuffs. Sweet J. He never gives me the face saying, "Don't you have enough already??" Ah, do I have enough or do I need more? It's only me who keeps adoring such gorgeous human creations and desiring more? Please tell me "No". :)

You are not the only one who keeps buying more stuff for your stash! When we moved a year and a half ago, I went through all my quilting stash and sold about half of it. I only kept the fabrics that brought me joy (or were sentimental.) I also keep buying yarn, even though I have quite the stash of it.

I love the fabric display idea! Cute and functional!

Aww.. thanks Abby!!
I'm seriously considering selling some of my fabrics back. Well,I still love them but if I didn't use them many years already there's a very small chance that I would play with them. Dilemma! I wish I had a huge house that I could put huge inventory as much as I want. Perhaps collecting is my thing. :)

My beloved husband said to me 'when are you going to make/finish something?'

He then said "you don't have to finish but you can never quit" - realizing that I just need the stuff.

I miss him so.
