folding and accumulation

large cloth pieces folded and organised by colour value and weight

Previously on hanging from the clothes rail, these fabric lengths look neater folded and take up less space! I am also able to see exactly what palette is available to me and how much!

These are large pieces of fabric, destined for large pieces of work.

My accumulation of fabric started in the 70’s, yes in the 70’s! and came from  dressmaking off cuts and selected clothes that I had liked. I remember thinking that i needed a good supply of colours to be able to make quilts. I think I may have enough now……

the accumulation of stuff , I think, is very much tied in to procrastination…… is not about delaying starting something, rather, it is about delaying letting go.
