Pattern stash pack up
Perhaps I should have counted them like Peter did.Or think about displaying them like Tilly did. Instead, I sorted and organized them. Now, they're stuffed into two boxes in categories--Infant, 1/2 & 6 mos, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, out of print multi-sized, in print multi-sized, crafts, vintage multi-sized (I have several in multiple sizes... as in the same pattern just in two-five sizes, and I wanted to keep those 2-5 patterns together), and a small box of WIPs inside the top box that I'm planning to use in the near future. After the fumigation, I'm going to start saving for an actual filing system. Maybe it will end up being bins, I don't know. What I do know is that two rows of patterns fit in these moving boxes, and they're stacked two deep plus some on top! I have a feeling that there's probably at least 200 patterns in those boxes, easily!
The sewing closet is almost empty. My sewing cabinet has been emptied out. I have a few more caches to clean out, and then everything except what I'm working on right now has been put into storage. We still have a few closets to clean out, and my dresser is recently unblocked, (it had the contents of my bookshelves stacked around it in boxes!) so I should be able to finish this week. It's been a long process packing around the needs of a toddler and a baby!
