mystery......

What do you do when you find a bundle of fabric tucked away in a box..... In a snap lock bag on its own....... I have a feeling it was for a specific project.... But really can't remember..... Anyone else have this problem?
I'm in the Chookshed. Been cleaning and tidying. It's going to be a hot day so not sure if I'll last out here all day..... 
But now things are a little more tidied I might cut into those French general fabrics...... That I've been fondling..... 
Catch you later.....

  2. Yep, for sure, also started projects that I've put away and forgotten what I was going to do with them. I've started labelling things now. Hot here as well, no sewing, just lying under the fan and reading.

  3. They look like Civil War reproduction fabrics. Yum! Fortunately, I usually label my bags. Enjoy playing with your fabrics.

  6. Most of those fabrics look familiar. Many are somewhere in my stash. Yes, I have forgotten why certain fabrics were once set aside. It happened often enough that now I try to put the pattern in with the fabric. Even then, I sometimes can't figure out why I thought "those fabrics" would work with "that pattern"!
    We are enjoying a snowstorm--we've had precious few of those this winter.

  7. Yep me too. Once I use it on something then I realise what it was put away for.

  8. I haven't found forgotten fabric but I had bought fabric for a lap quilt and it has disappeared! My fear is that it has got thrown out when I had a room tidy one time.

  10. What a nice surprise, you will figure out what the fabric should be used for. Has not happened to me YET.

  11. That's the best fun finding fabric you'd forgotten about - it's like going shopping all over again. I'd be doing some handpiecing with diamonds or soemthing like that? Maybe some Farmers wife blocks you could sash around?

  12. Bonus find . Yes, I’ve done it too. Or, I’ve got the fabric and cannot locate the pattern of remember what magazine/book it came from.

  13. Ah yes I have done that too, I tell myself to label the fabric or put a pattern with it but it does not always work! Looks like beautiful fabric.
