For the last few days I really have not done any machine sewing. I have worked on my EPP hexagons and my cross stitch but I have not been in the mood to “sew” sew.
When I get into these moods I like to just work in my sewing room: cleaning of tabletops, putting fabric away and reorganizing overflowing areas. Here is a little show and tell:
This is my scrap basket. Anything too small or odd shaped to fold gets thrown
in on the basket. I think it is time to sort through and get it somewhat under control. I may cut it into 2 1/2” strips and 5” squares to start. I guess I have a topic for my “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” theme.
About a month ago, I ordered some linen from Japan though Etsy:
I really love it. The solid I bought in NY last year. I think I am going to make some fabric boxes for my sewing room. I wish I could find some nice linen locally.
Yesterday, I went to my LQS to match a fabric for my hexies. I found exactly what I wanted!! I was so excited, I bought this:
Right now I am planning a log cabin and using this fabric for the dark and some of my off white fabrics for the lights.
Last year I re-organized my sewing room and I am happy to say that I have been keeping it up. I have added new fabrics and I am really running out of room but so far it is still working:
But here is the scary part. Most of my fabric is wrapped onto comic book cards so that they stack nicely and are easy to pull out of stash. I have gone through 400 so far and as you can see, not all my fabric is wrapped. That means I have more that 400 pieces of fabric!!
