I organized my fabric last year by buying the comic book boards and wrapping anything bigger then 1/2 yard. While I was wrapping I measured and took notes of content and color to put into an excel worksheet on the computer. I sorted all my fabric on my "bookshelf" by content and color (green cottons, blue cottons, knits, fleece...). I then printed out my worksheet and as I used some of the fabric, I crossed it off my list or adjusted the amount. It has worked out really well for me, except now I have moved and stopped following it a little. I think as my first project I am going to update my worksheet.

I hope that helps at least one of you fabric stashers with some of your organizing.

I'm just going to go through and fold all of my stuff up, see what I have, organize by material, and then I'm gonna create create create. If I make my petticoat sooner, that should clear up a lot of space in my tubs, because then I could just hang it up! I'm gonna show you guys my list of WANT to do in the first week.

Black hat and scarf for Dad.
Finish the entire outfit for my doll. (Based around the red/black hat.)
At least one drawing project.
At least one set of earrings.
My library tote book.
20 Cranes Smiley
Use at least one of my goal of 50 patches.
Possibly a grocery bag.
If I'm feeling REALLY ambitious, then I'll
Create at least one simple bottle scene.
Make a sweater sleeve cat
And or make my own pair of armwarmers.

(I know that would be an impossible amount for most of you, because you actually have lives. But I'm no longer in school, can't find a job, and I don't have anything else to do except housechores, play videogames and with my pets. Smiley

I quit smoking 20 years ago, and I've never been sorry.  It's a great accomplishment.  I just quit cold turkey.

And I just recently decided to lose a few pounds.  I'm working on twenty five pounds in a year.  So far, I'm down by twelve.

I hear you all about stashbusting.  I'm all for it this year.  I've been sorting through my stash, and I'm probably going to add a few more items to my list.

I made plywood bolts for a lady a few years back to help her with her fabric.  She says it helped her to be able to see what she has, and kept things a little cleaner.

So I know I'm really last minute, but I hope I'm not too late to join in!  I've only got a partial list (so I could post it by today  Tongue)  but I'll have more, I promise!  I'm still somewhat of a newbie (crafted a lot when I was younger, but just now got into doing it seriously) and you all are such an inspiration, hopefully I can make some things worthy of sharing!  So without any more babbling, here goes:
1.   Small rug on knitting loom from t-shirt yarn (in progress)
2.   Jean skirt from jeans with ridiculous holes in the crotch
3.   5 resin spoon pendants
4.   Latch hooked bear for niece
5.   Make a necklace to use pendant from great-grandma
6.   Basketball earrings for pep band
7.   Hearthstone pillow for the bf
8.   Reconned shirt using old girl scout patches
9.   Recon pink lacy shirt using brown pillowcase fabric
10.   Make a black lacy choker
11.   Fabric hankies to cut down on the ridiculous amount of paper tissues I use
12.   Make 3 pieces using old costume jewelry
13.   Make tote bag from giant purple hand me down sweater
14.   Make homemade mayonnaise and marshmallows
15.   Self designed latch hook using yarn and fabric scraps (just barely started)
16.   Huh

Hopefully I can get most of them done in the first half of the year, because this fall (assuming no huge unseen obstacles) Ill be starting graduate school in chemistry and will have NO time.  But well give it the old college try!

ariethine-you caught me; I was just so gosh darned excited to read everyone's lists!

pixieval- This second semester of my senior year shouldn't be awful (as much as that's ever possible as a chem major), but the grad school workload scares the crap out of me!

I'm not even actually at home yet (at my bf's family's house), but when I do, I'll be able to look at my notebooks and think of the rest of my list!  I'm soooo excited it's not even funny!  Grin
