Enter if you dare!
The Deep Stash is mostly fiber and textiles. I have bins of fashion fabric though I make very few garments any more. I have a bin of Paternayan Persian needlepoint yard and a couple of sacks of tapestry needlepoint yarn. I have two copier-paper boxes of DMC floss. (One box was a rummage sale bargain. The skeins were in individual numbered envelopes. How could I pass that up?) I have a large accumulation of vintage household textiles -- tablecloths and napkins, dish towels, aprons, and embroidered pieces. I have a box for never-stitched embroidery kits. There are some rolls of upholstery fabric that I got dirt-cheap. (Possible tote bags?) Actually, most of the Deep Stash was acquired cheaply, if not dirt-cheaply.
|Fashion fabric (one box of 8)|
I have divested myself of some of the Deep Stash. Last year I took a copier-paper box of even-weave embroidery cloth and a box of findings (such as needlework frames) to the local stitchery shop. I dug into the fabric bins when I made the Care Bags (see previous post). Earlier this month I pulled out an entire bin of miscellaneous solid fabric. Some went to Care Bags and a lot (poly-cotton lining-weight) got cut into 10" squares for HeartStrings blocks.
These four boxes have disassembled/washed/ironed silk neckties.
These are all-cotton, never-used tablecloths that will be quilt backs some day.
This little bundle was $2.00 at a Wisconsin rummage sale. With a note like that, how could I resist?
Why are there more lids than there are lid-less boxes??
So there you have it. The Deep Stash. I've had fun acquiring it and I've enjoyed owning it. Now I want to thin it out. (But not too much.)
