My Studio DeStash...

I have more sewing and crafting supplies that I can possible use in my lifetime...
and I just really need to do something about it!

I can just imagine our daughters, as they sort through my belongings some day...
"why did mom have so much stuff?" they will ask.

Well, I have been creating all of my life.
I started sewing with the sewing machine when I was 10.
That's over 45 years of purchasing fabric and notions!

Not to mention, I worked at Northwest Fabrics from 1978 to 1985.
And, when they had a sale...they. had. a. sale!

Some of you remember a year and a half ago,
I moved my mom from her little townhouse to the assisted living center.
Her sewing supplies are here now too.

She had many things in here drawers that were
"too pretty to use"
Like this...
"too pretty to use"

So I organized...measured...took photos...
and listed the laces and ribbons in my

(I had to tell Lucy that Etsy does not have a category to list cats.)

So, if you are needing some lace, or ribbon, or beads, or patterns,

The next box to tackle involves tapes, braids, and rick rack...

Have a Creative Week, everyone.

Take care,
~Natalie

Everything is so pretty! I wish I were working on a sewing project so I would have an excuse to add some to my collection!

Oh my goodness, girl! That is quite a stash! But I know what you mean... I worked at Hobby Lobby for 19 years and I think I hit every sale and clearance. I am in the process of de-stashing too. It's quite a chore! Your pieces are very pretty, I'm sure they will sell quick. Lucy's so cute, lol!

Have a fantastic week~

Wow Natalie! Are you sure you can't use that? Pretty stash of laces. I'll rack my brain to see if I can come up with some woodcrafts to use them on. There's got to be something :-)
I've got a few staging photos with cats in them too... lol.
