It's time to sell the little house in town and before I can even think about showing it, I have to make it look like a home instead of a messy, messy sewing room. I bit the bullet today and packed the entire stash. Except for a few pieces of fabric I kept out in order to finish projects that have deadlines, everything is packed. The first few boxes, I measured the fabric as it was going in just to kinda have a record of it - just in case I never see it again. Each box held between 110 and 120 yards and I packed 19 boxes. I didn't count the bolts because I'm not packing them.
So, no new projects from me for a while. I hope to be able to open the boxes and put the stash away in a new home some time after the first of 2007.
Thanks to all who responded about the Quilt for an Hour project. Glad to see there's interest in keeping it going.

Karen from Cotton Spice asked: Got any sock patterns to recommend?
I'm the last person to be giving advice on socks but the pattern that Suze sent me is Classic Socks by Yanker Knitter Designs and once I got started, it seems easy. The knitting shop here gave me a free one from Plymouth Yarn Company to use with the Sockotta yarn. It's called "Ladies Basic Socks". I think the basic patterns are pretty much the same once you figure out how to do the heel, gusset, etc. I have not figured that out yet but I'm fixing to prop my feet up and knit and I think I might have a sock finished by bedtime .. if all goes well.
