We’ve had a cool, damp, summer… much to my pleasure. But it’s no good for stored fabrics, even fabrics stored properly in cedar chests. This weekend we’re having a Santa Ana – aka desert weather – and I’m using the hot and try to air out my fabric stash and my fabric chests.
I thought y’all would get a kick out of this, or at least a laugh or three.
And I found a few things that I’d forgotten I had! (The white is a scrap of silk left from having my wedding gown made – I think I might have just enough to make a corset someday. Yes, that’s real silk, not the silk-poly you can get now).
I don’t have a problem. Why does everyone say I have a problem? 😉
ETA: This became inventorying and neatly re-stashing, including *three bags* full of scraps (some quite large) headed to ASG next month. I can now shut all my fabric drawers properly, and have inspiration for my next makes.
ETA2: Quite a lot of the bulk of stash is large cuts of wool from my mom’s occasional treks to the PNW, where she always hooks a girl up by stopping by the Pendleton Wool Mill outlet. I also have a few very nice things that I’ve made over the years stashed to be remade (long wool skirt) or given to grandkids.
