bring on Christmas...give away

A photo of the Christmas/winter stash..this filled most of one shelf in the fabric room. I left out the scraps and a few clothing projects . I am part of the Winter Seasons Swap-I will use some of this for that, and the rest? Some of it is cheap fabric-I will use that for backs and the rest ? Bonnie's current mystery quilt, gift bags, a few quilts I have had in mind and then the actual Christmas themed fabric that is leftover will be offered to whoever wants it. By the end of December it all has to go. There are a few batiks in there, the packet of pre-cut Christmas six inch squares, some fqs, and yardage. There is some green bear fabric in there back from the early 80's I bought from Penneys fabric department and made outfits for my sister and my mom from! That piece will be set aside for the backing of a quilt for Alice. I know those clothes are long gone now, but, the memory of that time will live on in the quilt. I found two Christmas vests cut out and a Christmas jumper-I am going to seriously look at those and either go for it, or toss them. I am out of room to store fabric and decided this was an easy place to make a start of using it up/passing it along. None of this sewing are for gifts for this year-so there is no pressure involved-I just want to cut up and put together projects that will use the best of this fabric and sew as much this month as I feel like doing. I also have that ufo to get back to plus a few small things on the to do list.

I bought this panel or maybe I was given this's a Sandy Gervais, Pieces of my heart by moda- the first person to email me/leave a comment- gets it.
Happy December everyone!

What a lovely Christmas gift it would be to receive your "leftover" fabric. I believe there is a purpose for all fabric, no matter how small the piece, if only to drool over. Good luck using up what you have!

Great plan to clear off space on your shelves. Since April I have been working on my closet shelves and as I clear off a spot, I usually put a framed photo there! I just love opening my closet and seeing my photos instead of piles and piles of "stuff". What is left is things that I actually use.

And this past week I helped Little Boy clear out space in his toy box - Santa will only leave toys if there is ROOM in the toy box - might as well teach him early how to purge - a little bit anyway!
