You read that right. 100 things. Maybe you're thinking "there's no way I can think of 100 things I'm thankful for." That's what I thought at first, too. 30 tops, but never 100. So I thought I'd give this a try just to see if I actually could. I snagged it from This Gal who stole it from Her. I thought I'd give a shot at keeping the love going, so here goes . . .

I've been working hard at getting all my ducks-in-a-row for the Thrifty-Fifty Challenge. Pulling fabrics, gathering notions, making a list for anything I don't already have. Which isn't much, thankfully.
So there's some of the lovely fabric I'll be working with over the next few days. And I'm not sure why those pictures are showing up so muted....they were much crisper/brighter in my photo program. I'll have to figure that out, but it'll have to wait for now.

It was a cold, dreary night. The wind was howling and a dense fog was setting in. In a cozy house tucked back in the woods, lights were glowing and people were stirring about. You could hear the chatter and rumbling going on in there. Something was amiss.

There's empty boxes to go out, paint, etc. This room is still in-progress. Fabric to the left - fabric to the right - here I am, stuck in the middle with you - oh, my, my.
This is only about 2/3 of my stash. I have more in a wardrobe that needs to be emptied and moved in here, as well as most of my notions. I tried to organize it by color and/or pattern - reds, oranges, yellows, etc. Then stripes, checks, dots, black & white, dark prints, light prints that didn't fit into the other colorways, exactly. Then the bottom right cubbie has fabrics that I've set aside for specific projects for myself or kids...special stuff. As you can see by the top of that shelving unit, there's still more to sort and put into the cubbies. It'll be stuffed! Plus the fabric that's still in that wardrobe in my den. Have I mentioned how much I love fabric?
Off to the right is more "stuff" to go out to the shed, thenthe doorway to my laundry room - thus the wad of giant white tablecloths under my folding table that have yet to be laundered after a function in October. Yep. I'm a slacker.
So - that's my space and my stash. Hope you enjoyed the tour.
That post on the super hero capes and "A Letter to Ree" will have to wait for now. My oldest son went hunting today and killed his first deer!! So I'm off to his grandparent's house to squeeze him a few times (the kid, not the dead deer), take pics and then go cry for while. My firstborn is no longer a baby. Not when he can go out and bring home dinner. He's that much closer to manhood and forgetting his poor Ma. *sniff*sniff*
Love to all,
