My Stash Exposed
This is how Molli Sparkles rocks a stash. First of all it’s fuchsia and second of all it sparkles like an Edward Cullen. But, I have a feeling that’s not what Sarah of Sarah Quilts had in mind when she asked me to show off my stash. I bet she wanted me to show off my fabric stash. Mmm, okay.
I know this is gonna surprise a lot of you who think I’m a total fabric hoarder, but my fabric stash is contained in only three Ikea Samla boxes. In Australia, they’re $9.99 each for the 78x56x18 cm size (excluding the lid, which is $5). I bought this size with grand intentions of keeping them under the bed, and then quickly realized after pulling them out all of two times that, that was never gonna happen! So now they just sit on the floor in the second bedroom.
Many a nights, I’ll walk by them and get quiltspiration. Mr. Sparkles will often catch me just staring down and will have to snap me out of my reverie. It’s hypnotising!
They are slightly organised, but it could always be better right? The first contains mostly fat quarters, or half yards of fabric I’m consistently using. The second contains yardage, collections, and the batiks. By the way, I’m gonna blow your batikin’ mind tomorrow for TGIFF, so you can go turn that nose up at batiks somewhere else! MolliSparkles.com is a batik friendly zone; we accept fabrics of all shapes, sizes, colours, backgrounds, foregrounds, makes, and models.
The third box I call the Glitter Sorting Zone. If you can’t find it anywhere else, it’s probably in here. When I need a quick clean up–WHOOSH–into the Glitter Sorting Zone it goes. Have you ever tried sorting glitter? Good luck.
And that my friends, is my stash. Pretty simple, eh? Thanks Sarah for inviting me to link up to your “You Show Me Yours, I’ll Show You Mine” linky party. Y’all know I’m always happy to show my bits!
