Stash sort out

Today I spent a bit of time organising my stash. One day, I would love to have a stitchy room, so all my stash is able to be in one place, but that's just not possible right now. I recently decided that I wanted to remove my kits and fabric from the plastic tubs they have been in and put them in a storage chest/blanket box or something of the like. I had been eyeing up a chest in a store at the local shopping centre before Christmas but didn't have the spare cash for it so decided to wait. Last week I had the cash but when I went in, it wasn't there :( It would have been great as it was one with a Union Jack on (feeling quite patriotic at the moment). So once home, I decided to look on eBay and use the money I had put aside. After a few days of sweating over it, I won a wooden storage chest that was just going to be perfect, and came in under my budget! Hubby collected it for me this morning, so this afternoon I was moving my stash of kits and fabric into it's lovely new home. Here's what I started with:
And here's how it ended up:
I'll probably end up putting the frames in it too, just to make it look neater on the top but I am so pleased with it, and I think it looks so much better than it did!


  1. That looks fantastic hun! Lovely storage box. My stash is all over the place, I might have to think about doing the same one day.

  2. Thanks hun! I'm loving it, and just itching for a stitching room... But one step at a time! Think Little Miss will be grown up and moved out by the time that happens :P

  3. Great new storage. Looks gorgeous.

  4. What a fabulous way to store your kits and stuff! Mine are all in plastic boxes in a wardrobe where I had a builder add shelves. It's okay as they are no longer on the floor, but if I had the room for something like your lovely trunk, I would be happier!
