Bless Our Home

One of my favorite patterns to stitch up, this Bless Our Home finished piece has gone through many varieties during the years. I've changed the color of just about every part -- including the house itself, and I've finally settled on this latest version.

Fabric Stash: Before and After

So I guess I didn't realize just how much fabric I had until the day I decided enough was enough and I'd have to somehow organize and inventory my stash. During the holiday season I had gotten into the habit of grabbing and throwing fabric into piles which makes me insane when it comes to finishing time. I knew I had to do something. Yikes! 

I'm not going to post photos of what my "before" looked like because I'm too mortified, but -- this is what my fabric stash looks like now. Well, at least the majority of it. I have two more bins not shown in these photos.

I have tried many different solutions to my fabric situation, including hanging shoe racks, storage cubes, you name it. But my problem was always keeping my fabric organized. I wanted a place (preferably mobile) that I can see all of my fabrics at one time, but that didn't require a lot of effort putting the fabric back in place once I had used it. I'm pretty happy with the results.

I found these Artbin Super Satchel Cases at Joann's and thought they'd be perfect because of the separate compartments. The compartments are just the right size for fat quarters, and give you the opportunity to sort by color and/or pattern. They retail for $39.99 but I had a super-duper coupon that got them down to $16.99 which I was thrilled about. They're also available at Amazon (of course).

Happy Bark Mitzvah!

I have received many unique and creative requests over the years --  many of them leaving me asking myself, "Why didn't I think of that?!" but I have to say, I don't believe I've ever had a request for a custom greeting card that was quite as clever as this one!

Something tells me the recipient of this card is one spoiled dog!

On a separate but related note, my blog friend, Karen, has recently started a blog called Sending Paw Prints. If you are a card-maker, please visit her site and help if you can!

Sending Pawprints Mission
Sending Paw Prints supports our furry friends by collecting blank thank you pet themed handmade cards and donating them to animal shelters and rescue groups for them to write thank you messages to foster parents, donors and volunteers.

Animal shelters and rescue groups send hundreds of thank you cards to foster parents, donors and volunteers each month. Sending Paw Prints mission is to donate enough blank thank you pet themed handmade cards to animal shelters and rescue groups so they no longer need to purchase them and are able to send a heartfelt thank you message with a personal handcrafted card.
