Stashbusting with Bonnie and Brenda Leigh

The top isn't done yet . . . but I made a lot of progress on Bonnie's Scrappy Bargello today–you can see her great big finished top here. I spent a good part of the day sewing 2.5 inch strips into panels and stopped just before the interesting part begins.

During the mind-numbing sewing, I tuned in to The Closer marathon and watched as Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson sovled crime after crime after crime.

Does it count as stash-busting, even if the quilt isn't yet finished? The five panels I sewed today contain a little under 5 yards of fabric. An even better benefit to me was that while I pulled fabric for those 200 plus strips, I organized and folded a little less than half my stash. I'm hoping organization is contagious and I will continue to be motivated to finish organizing and folding soon.

I wasn't sewing, but cleaning my sewing room which really needed it, while also watching the Closer marathon!
Of course it counts as stash-busting, using the fabric is what counts!

Anything done while watching the Closer counts!!

Wow, a marathon of The Closer - that would be fun - I saw about half a dozen of those, and then it seemed to disappear off air here. Guess it should go on my DVD list. And I'd say, pulling fabric to assign to future projects definitely counts.
