I'm still standing!

Hello, I feel bad for neglecting you. Life has been busy. Between weddings, renovating and life in general, I have been trying to clean out the spare {sewing} room. Somewhere along the line, my dirty little craft habit has got out of control. In order to get the room ready for the baby, I have to ship out the room. Into two shelves in the linen cupboard. It is turning into mission impossible! Meanwhile, I have been very finishing off a few projects that have been lingering...

Meanwhile, I am feeling super inspired for a few new projects too. Does this happen to you? Pouring over all the fabrics, books and patterns only makes me want to sew more! It's a never ending process...!

Tell me, have you ever had to down size your craft stash? How did you do it? And were you glad you did it in the end?
