More storage.

I am using my daughter's old white bedroom hutch she had as a little girl in my sewing room. Needed some more storage space
Found this bedroom side drawers at Fanatstic Furniture, for a bargain.
Typical, you always have an extra screw or two left over after building.
Now to fill it.

Textile Quilt

I would like to use up the stash of textile bits and pieces I have collected over the last few years. This Chinese box contains threads, ribbons and braids.
I have a box of sheers, upholstery, satin and various types of fabrics.
At Guild last month, we were given these felt horse winning sashes that one one of our members found in a throw out bin
Another of my containers has balls of wool and rayon.
Now what to do with all of them.
I recently saw an article in a textile magazine where a wall-hanging was made up of "inchies".
This idea appealed to me as it would be something to do hand sewing wise at meetings. They would be small enough to take in my bag. I have participated in several inchie swaps and loved making them.
Will give it a good thought and see what I come up with.
