You know what's the best thing to do when you're tired and stressed and messed up in the mind? Tear your fabric off the shelves and indulge in a little spring cleaning. There's just something soooo therapeutic about the process : Folding, re-folding, enjoying the textures of the fabric, not to mention admiring the variety of prints. Planning and imagining all types of projects. At the end of it all, you have a nice neat shelf and a nicer quieter mind. Bliss...
I discovered, to my great surprise, that I have a surprisingly small pile of red fabric. I say surprise, because red is my favourite colour most days.
Of course I immediately thought of going on a red shopping spree, then checked myself and remembered that I had meant to go on a fabric-shopping diet. Yes, I've been telling myself I should stop buying and hoarding, and start using what I actually have... but you have to agree with me, that IS a small bundle isn't it?
I suppose I should mention that in the middle of my so called fabric diet, this arrived for me during the week:
I just couldn't resist those dots! These are from Spot On by Robert Kaufman. Err, I think. No, I'm sure. I think.
Anyways, back to the fabric cleaning. I've also sorted out my small scraps. Err, again. Now I've got a little pot for the leeettle, little scraps:
Does anyone else have trouble binning small scraps? Even when they're tiny? I keep thinking there'll be some use for them, you know, applique for example.
Then there's the not so small scraps:
I have a nice neat sewing room now, my fabric at the ready to be pulled off the shelves again, but for sewing this time. What a fabulous way to start the weekend :-)
Hope everyone has a happy one!
