Last month the Stashbusters Yahoo Group chatted about organizing sewing rooms and inventorying UFOs. Several people posted photos of the boxes they use to store UFOs and WIPs (works-in-progress). "What's in the box?" quickly became WITB.
I thought, "I don't have many UFOs. What do I have in boxes?" Then I took a good look around my studio. I have more boxes than I realized -- not so many UFOs but parts and patches aplenty.
|Two boxes of orphan blocks (and some bags of units)|
|Postage stamps, red/black/white parts, and light-dark-light 9ps|
|Lime green strips cut about 10 years ago, some blocks made|
|Right: scrap triangles. Left: sewn triangles. Many sizes.|
|4p; mixed-fabric 9p; cat's cradle units|
|2.5" and 2" HST (my go-to Leaders-and-Enders)|
|3.5" 9p from the BlockSwappers exchanges (about 700 in this box!)|
|Hexies made from neckties, my ongoing travel handwork|
