#SONP 2013 and a new project

I am getting really excited for the #SONP 2013 I am going to do a beginner pattern review for it in June – more details on that closer to the date, if you have any suggestions of a pattern to review let me know! – I have been itching to get back to my sewing machine. Today I am going to make some curtains, blinds are NOT enough to keep out the lights from the ships that go by.

I bought a nice chocolate brown cotton for my curtains, I have not decided if I am going to add any accents to it or if it will just be brown, I will have to ponder that…

I also picked up some nice red and white polka dot fabric to make some cushion covers.

When I first started sewing I always wondered what people meant when they said that their stash was getting out of hand, well now I understand! I have caught myself buying fabric without having a project for it, I have some red and white check cloth – like a picnic cloth, and no plans for that, as well as some green freckle cloth that is currently collecting dust… and a few others.

Do you have stash problems? Any suggestions for uses of the fabrics mentioned – the green was going to be for a skirt but once I got it home I realized that I don’t really love it…
