I fact having emptied all 10+ boxes of my material out to sort there is material in piles on every surface in my sewing room....to be honest this was first thing yesterday morning and after many happy hours oooing and awwwing it's now looking more like this.....
I spent quite a while trying to decide just how I was going to store it but it's now been sorted into...
- Cottons and poly cottons patterned
- Cottons and poly cottons plain
- Warm checks and woolen fabrics
- Shiny fabrics
- Furnishing fabrics
- Utility fabrics for patching/darning and pocket linings
- Stockinette fabrics for dolly faces
- Smaller scrap box
.......and of course there are random pieces tucked in where there is room for them. Maybe, just maybe I will be able to find any piece I need now? I guess there is rather more chance now at the least. :-)
Just in case you think I've been wasting any time I have also, at long last, managed to finish the top I started for myself months ago and I have been working on my new Facebook page uploading some of my rag dolls. Thanks to all who have 'liked' and 'shared'.....there has been a lot of interest in them.....and little Micky has been sold already.
That's all from me for today. If you'd like to leave me a little hello comment I will call by at yours as soon as I'm able.
