Fabric and More Fabric



In the last couple of days, I've been cleaning out my old studio in the barn.  It was a bit trashed.


What I've discovered is that I have fabric.  LOTS of fabric.  In fact, I have 11 rubbermaid tubs FULL of fabric.


There are cottons and linens and wools and velvets and more cottons and more linens and more wools and more velvets.

 
It's absolutely crazy!!



So, the fabric is going to go!

"Where?" you might ask.... well, I'm thinking Etsy.

There is just too much of it to trash.  I can't think of a single family member who might like it.

And there are some gorgeous pieces.  Both large and small.  So, I'm going to spend the next several days/weeks/months airing it out on the clothes line, photographing it and listing it on Etsy.  

And I hope to have 11 very empty rubbermaid tubs very soon!  Wish me luck!
