Color Study

I'm doing a piece that is a color study. I wanted 9 gradated shades of blue yesterday, and 5 shades of green today. I will be needing yellow, purple and pink soon. I'm a little worried if I will have shades of pink.
Since I'm checking my stash for the colors, it gives me a good chance to clean out my stash. I'm embarrassed to show you how my stash cupboard looks. But here goes:

Boy oh boy. This is one picture I don't want to make bigger. But I will. I'm either brave or stupid.
I have been thru the blues and greens in this pic. I think I want to get some containers with covers to fit these shelves. I'll have to measure and see what I can find. I'll want to be able to see thru the container, and stack them, maybe.
In a week or so, I'll post another pic. Hope it's mucho bettero then. (that's Spanish, isn't it?)

So here are my blues and greens:

You're brave showing your fabric cupboard. I recognise those colour choices, will be interested to see what you do with them xx

I use stackable, clear plastic bins for my fabric to help tidy things up a bit. Now don't expect perfectly folded and neat fabric inside my bins... it's usually OK, but sometimes still quite messy inside them! :)

You are keeping it real! I put quilted cover over the mess in my bookshelfs, lol.

I like the color gradients you have made. I am interested to see what you are going to make with them.
