Sorted!!!

Well that is all of my fabric and other sewing stuff sorted out.
Now all that remains is to try and keep it tidy.....and I will try very hard.

I have 10 boxes of fabric.........



The top box on the on the bottom pic is currently empty but probably won't stay that way for long.


Patterns all organised and easily accessible now.


Offcuts of fabrics for doll clothes, patchwork squares or small projects and my thread cones now all neat and tidy instead of being thrown in a box.


Andy made this for me to enable me to use the larger cones......a piece cut off an old shelf, a piece of broom handle and all prettied up with a bit of decopatch. I added the container recently as the cones just used to stand on the base and I kept knocking them onto the floor.

The three larger drawers of the unit store more fabric which is already earmarked for clothing projects and all my batting, wadding, filling and backing fabric is stored under the dining table in a large box.
Behind me is a whole other mess which I can't get my head around today but it will be sorted soon.

Before I do anything else today I am really ready for some lunch. It's not often I bother with anything but we won't be eating tea until later tonight so I'd better have something to stop the grumbling.

The wind is making it feel pretty chilly here again today so I will also need to go and search for my cardigan.

Have a lovely day y'all.

    1. I'd seen a revolting black plastic and wire one on the internet for £13 and I wasn't paying that so Andy and I came up with this one between us-x-

  2. I do love a good storage box or six! Your cone holder is fab-well done on the decoupage. I'm cleaning today as everything is so dusty due to lack of rain. Afternoon coffee time I think. Have a good weekend. Catriona

  3. That's a lot of fabric but it's now incredibly well organised and that cone holder - genius! You deserve a rest after all that hard work. The rest of the mess can wait for another day. X

  6. You're certainly very organised! I wish my craft room was as well organised. I just seem to get things sorted and I mess it all up again.

    You have a lot of fabric to play with! It's probably as addictive to collect as yarn or arty stash.

    1. I'm hoping that now it is so well organised that I will be able to keep it tidier than I have been doing Sharon.

      Yep fabric is definitely addictive. If I'd bought everything I wanted when I went to the markets in Birmingham I would have needed a new house never mind a tidier room-x-

  7. My goodness me Sheila
    1. You're very organised and
    2. 9 boxes of fabric is an awful lot
    3. Can you come and sort mine now please?
    Well done - it's surprising just how much space fabric can take up - I've booked to go to the quilt show at Malvern in the middle of May - I'll let you know if it's any good xx
