How I spent part of Mother's Day

I organized and folded my fabric today to make it easier to see, less messy, and grouped by colors.  Here is the finished project :)
Top shelf has mostly fabrics that I have bought to coordinate with each other and flannelette for baby stuff in the one corner.
Second shelf has been grouped by main color.
Bottom shelf has a stack of batiks, groups of colors, and in the middle 2 stacks of enough fabric for 4 quilts that my friend Clara gave me - they are all 1/2 yards and are sent to her from a quilt shop in Atlanta where she used to live. Each set has at least 10 different coordinating colors.  She was awesome to share with me!
The metal rckety shelf to the side is from an alley in Santa Monica!  The top shelf has a jelly roll and a roll of chicken sticks on it aka fabric that goes together in different sizes.
The Avon brown box has assorted sizes of fabrics that are too good to decide what to do with them.
The clear boxes have fat quarters aka 18 x 22 inch fabrics in one and in the other are remmantrs from Joanns.
Bottom shelf has 2 hot potato bags resting until they get a new home.
Feels great to have this finally done :)

Update - the cardboard box is gone and all the random pieces of fabric are folded and stored properly in the largest plastic bin.  The crossstitch kits that were in the bin now rest atop the spuds bags.

Thank you Jessica

These are the Gingher scissors that Jessica got for me for Mother's Day.  They are so darn sharp! I have to be careful that I don't snip myself.  They will be a great asset to my quilting adventures.
I also found this little cartoon and is my avatar at the website Quilted Paradise.
Thought you all might get a kick out of it.

Love to my daughters on this day -  I tried to be an exceptional mother to you both and I am so proud of the young women that you have grown in to.
