Tonight I decided it was definitely time to inventory the shelf that I keep two big totes. Not only did I inventory but I photographed for posterity (and so I could remember what I have). I came to the sad realization that I really have a problem and should NOT hit a fabric store any time in the next 3 years. I have 28 PIGS living in the tote on that shelf. Yes you did read 28, and I can say thankfully they are not all started. I didn't write it down the number, but I think 7 are UFOs/PIGS. The rest are all fabric and patterns, nicely zipped into a bag.
Let me share a few pictures with you (which some aren't very good but you get the idea):
UFO which has become PIG #3. This is a Moda Bakeshop pattern that has gone to land of bags. The blocks are all pieced, I just need to put the whole top together.
(Forest Bricks) I guess something better came along and it ended up in the bag.
My thought before I counted was that I could grab a project and make it my goal to finish one a month. That sounded reasonable until I counted. 28 projects, one a month, well that will take me into October 2013. Yeah that's really scary when I think about it like that.
The picture below is of the second tote that sits on the same shelf. This tote is full (overflowing) with fabric that I bought in hopes of making something but could never decide on a pattern. Or maybe I had a pattern in mind but never stuck it in the bag so now I have no clue what I was thinking.
Maybe I should join one of the many blogs that is picking numbers and working on finishing up projects. Or I could continue to live in the land of denial. Sometimes that place is much happier and easier to handle.
