St Patricks Day Fabric???

Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I don't "do" green. I don't wear green (or yellow). I'm a pink, purple, blue type of gal. But I was scanning fabrics online last week and this green fabric called my name. Maybe it was just the Spring colors and we've been through such a dull grey/brown winter and my mind has been begging for some Spring colors. Maybe my mind was thinking ahead towards St Patricks Day (but I suspect not as I was so focused on the GS campout that I couldn't have told you that St Patricks Day was even this week).

Anyway, the fabric arrived on Saturday before we left on the GS campout and all I had time to do was bring it inside and leave it UNOPENED on the kitchen counter so that it didn't sit in the mailbox overnight. I opened it last night and fondled it fondly (funny that those two words come to mind) and realized that it had a bunch of green in it.

I often buy fabric in project sets (stuff that goes together) without any notion of what pattern or project I'm going to buy it for. It makes it very difficult to store it in my stash -- I want to keep the fabrics together (heaven forbid that I can't find the fabric that goes together later). I've started storing each fabric set in tubs, but now the tubs have taken over my living room. I kid you not! Now, many of them are shoe box sized tubs, but when you start to stack them 8 tubs high, they start to fall over.

I've got to do something. I have a plan, but its going to take some organization of furniture and stuff destined for the summer garage sale or Goodwill bin. And that will take me away from sewing. (big sigh) But I think it will be worth it. I might even (almost) have a sewing room when I get done.
