My fabric tastes

It has been interesting going through almost all of my fabric in one evening.
Lots of plain fabric but that has surface texture - self stripes, cord, denim, flecks or woven from 2 colours. Also quite a lot of pinstripes. Not a lot in the way of prints, though I did not go through the knits - as the knits are for tops I have a few more prints in there I think.

Once I go through and cut swatches of everything, and get a bit more realistic about what I am keeping from the home dec remnants and scraps I shall have everything in order.

I think going forwards I need to get into consulting my swatch cards before sewing since I have lots of very usable fabric in there.
I'm also going to try and be a bit more sensible about some of my UFOs (unfinished objects) - partly made or gone wrong projects. Some of these need to be thrown away or made into shopping bags rather than continue to be housed.
Interestingly a few of my UFOs are prints - harder to be 'me' I think.
