Well it's totally clean, so I have to show off just a little right? I'm actually amazed at how good looking it looks! Here's to tidy sewing rooms across the world this week... let's hope after the weekend it'll be the same.
There's my fave sections of fabric, above! I love the reds so much! Especially that red/green floral shizz; it's kinda soft flannel cotton stuff (totally winter) so we'll see if I finally get that to a dress this year during the Sew Weekly Challenge! I also love the yellows and oranges, and a few of the pinks there. The pink with the aqua lettering is totally going to be a tshirt soon, I'm just trying to get the right pattern. Me? In a tshirt? Yep, the lettering spells out SPORT and I'm so going to do more sport this year! Just you wait til I make this tshirt!
Here's a close up of those naughty blues. ICK what are you doing there! Notice how my purples are dwindling too. I adore purple at the moment! Wish that was as large as the blue pile!
Here's a close up of my cheap as chips Sewing Dresser! Buttons in bottles, books and patterns galore (you know those A4 1980s ones? I've got heaps of these weird knit ones!) and then my current crochet project (while I watch Season 6 of Sopranos, I'm making Husbie and I a massive bed spread! Should be ACE and warm!) with real life store bought wool from Morris and Sons in the city. I stocked up because there was a sale on. THRIFTY! Also, please note those are hand weights down the bottom right corner. See, SPORTY!
I noticed some of you liked my 'trunks'! I love you Northern Hemisphere peeps! These are collected suitcases from over the years, the top two are my childhood ones, the top one being a Holly Hobbie one. The red one is filled with figurines from Buffy The Vampire Slayer (a gift from my adorably funny friend) and the brown one has all my wool in it, and the bottom two big ones have heaps more patterns. *eep*
And there's old Joanie from 1960s! She's a little outta shape, but I'm going to restore her soon.
Here's all the things you need ASAP, so hence them being very close to my sewing desk!
And now, I wonder, what to make first...?
