Look at this!

Very quick post this morning, as I'm running late. I wanted to show you two pictures. Take a look at the boxes! These are all completely full of things to sell tomorrow. I hope I bring very little of it back home. The second picture is of my empty shelves. Aren't they great! Here's hoping they stay empty. I've also shortened the stacks of fabrics in the stacking basket - I just didn't take a picture of that.

Hotsy totsy here as my mother would have said. Supposed to be 104 today, 101 tomorrow and Sunday. I'm amazed how much just having my iron on in the sewing room heats up the room.

wow, you've done a great job of sorting and tidying while packing for the sale. Hope you sell it all, and only come home with the very best deals yourself :-)

great job! I have a load to take to Value Village today - no fabric, just stuff that need to go. I have had the cleaning but too - try to stay cool this weekend, it is going to be a scorcher!

Wow, Patti, that's hot if you notice the heat from your iron in the room. If the a/c quit working, I would be completely doomed because this house is a hotbox.

Your stash looks amazingly neat. I've been fusing some blocks for a block of the month quilt and YES the iron does really heat up the room. I hiked 5 miles today but it was only in the 90's here. (I was still drenched when I got home)

Wow your stash is really neat and organized. Nice green shelf and all too. Your room looks like a nice relaxing place to do some quilting. I wish I could come to your sale.

Good luck with selling your wares.

Here's to staying cool this weekend!

I am not entirely positive, but I think my entire stash would fit in those boxes - that is ALOT of fabric to clear out of your sewing area - enjoy your new found space! And good luck with the sale - stay cool!

Cheers!

I like the green walls and shelves too. And your stash is sooo neat. Good for you! I wish I could come to your garage sale too.

Good luck at the sale. Make sure you have enough water to keep yourself hydrated.
I like the green also. What method do you use to fold your fabric?

Judy said...

Good luck with the sale!! Nice to see spare space and empty shelves!

Bonnie said...

Your stash is SO neat! It must be agony to pull fabric and have to re-arrange. : (
Seriously, I love how your fabric looks - it is like candy to a quilter's eyes.

ForestJane said...

Wow, impressive looking shelves!

Did you save a BLT for meeee? I'll trade half a fresh cantelope for it. :)

Cher said...

woohoo! waiting to hear how the sale went and that you did not melt into one big puddle! what a wonderful retirement party it sounded...great food and greater friends-it just doesn't get any better than that. I hope to acheive half your neatness around here one day!

Finn said...
