Two in a row!!!

Wow two craft days I mean snow days in a row!!! I feel so lucky!! One of the perks of working at the same school as my kids, well that and the secret hugs in the hall...shhhhh..The above "pile" is a gift from my wonderful fabric-y sister who happens to manage a quilt shop. I am not sure what to do with it yet, but I have it displayed in my sewing space below as the Flavor of the Week.
Here is a picture of the afore mentioned organization efforts. My son wanted his own room last summer and I had my own sewing/office room, well who could deny his big puppy eyes, so I moved out and into a much smaller space. This meant, of course, shoving my fabric into three drawers. Five months later I organized them and now -I know what I have. Ureka!!
What I learned is that I have too much tan and red, very little purple and yellow, I must remedy this situation so that no color on the great color wheel feels left out.
In my last post I explained how fabric scraps are like a scrapbook of memories. The pic below is the first quilt I made. Okay it is a bit on the bright side, but my daughter was 10 at the time. This is a great way to use up bits and pieces of fabric too, if anyone would like details on the how too let me know.

I love the quilt, you did a great job. I'm like you, I have too many dark color fabrics. I need to widen my horizons to the bright side of fabrics. :)

I just found your blog, love your pics and projects!
