fabric and tubs

have you uploaded your pic to amy butler's "show me your stash" contest on flickr yet?

if you know me at all, you know that this isn't half of my fabric stash. um, can you say vintage sheet fabric hoarder??? anyway, while i am working on a sewing project, i love tossing fabric into a galvanized tub i have in my studio. this way i don't have to stop my flow to fold fabric nice and neat - i can save that for when i am done for the day. or, in my case, when i can't stand the mess a few weeks later and i need everything to be orderly.
