The Great Denim De-Stash

My sewing studio is a disaster.  Even when I tidy up, I just pile mountains of totes into the closet, and I can't access stuff.  It drives me bonkers.  I had intended 2016 to clear out some of my stash, and I have made very little progress.  So far, I have finished a few small … Continue reading The Great Denim De-Stash
