I am moving stuff around in my yoga studio and sprucing the place up a bit getting ready for fall classes and realized that some of my yoga bolsters needed some extra stuffing. Commercial ones are made with thick cotton batting, but for home, I made mine out of old wool or acrylic blankets that I pick up for next to nothing at thrift stores.

So while I was looking around through the stash for a few pieces of fleece to (dare I say it?) bolster them up a bit, I realized that if I was really desperate to hide certain fabrics, I could make a few more covers, roll my stash up and keep the whole works in decorative, useful bolsters!

Imagine how peaceful it would be to meditate on a bolster filled with your favourite fabrics. Maybe not reaching samadhi or nirvana right away, but I bet levitation would be a breeze.

I saw a video a while back ago about a woman who had multiple yards of stash and wanted to keep it from her DH. It was stored in the most unusual places--between the mattress and box spring, made a false bottom for a cabinet and kept some in there, folded up and somehow attached under her dining room table--places that the obvious person would never look. She even cleaned out a night stand and stored some in there.

So the stash in the yoga pillows is an excellent idea. Then you can shop for more!

Heard tell of a lady who put plywood across the watchacallems- beams? rafters?- in her unfinished attic crawl space to store and hide part of her stash from her husband.

Mine asked me if I was sick this month since I didn't buy fabric.

I was like...I want like 2 pieces that cost as much to ship it does ordering. Then my mom wants $60 in fabric, so...$4 is easier to eat then $8 on a $10 order.

I don't worry about my fabric. This has been a bumper crop year for fabrics I really like. I don't expect the shopping to last long, since I like colors that you don't see for long.

As to hiding it, I do it for my mom. I can stick fabric in places he'll never find it. Only problem is my mom can't remember where I put it, so I am always having to sneak it out for her.

Mine has supplied me with two different fabric cabinets, a birch sewing table, several bookshelves for my patterns and books, and a oak file box, not to mention items for other rooms in the house, including a red oak and birds eye maple parquet floor in the bedroom.

I have been very happy with his career change (now 25 years ago) from oil field geologist to furniture maker. When he was a geologist all I got was a pile of core samples in the yard.
