stash

I talked about reorganizing my stash the other day, so here it is:

The drawers hold most of my yarn, the 70's style bag with the license plate cover holds my spinning, behind it are a couple boxes of crochet and tatting thread, under it is some embroidery stuff, the patchwork looking bag-stand-thingy on the right holds my kitchen cotton, and above that is some embroidery floss and a few of my quilting things. The black binder holds all my printed off the internet patterns. The soy garden container on top of the tallest pillar of drawers holds my tatting shuttles and work in progress. Beside it is an old set of BOYE interchangeables under my Tupperware full of blocking pins. To the far left are my blocking wires.

Before I go any further I have to make a disclaimer: I did not buy the majority of my stash, three relatives over the past five years have passed on and left me their stashes, I am sad to have lost them, and hope to do their supplies justice by creating as many beautiful things with them as possible.

Let's take a look in some of the boxes and drawers shall we?
