It makes me quite sad and certainly fed up not to have been sewing or blogging for what seems like so long.
I really miss it and it cheers me up so much when I am doing it, it should be on the NHS.
I’ve spent what feels like weeks with my lovely work station visible out of the corner of my eye but just out of reach and not a single one of my projects has been completed nor a new one started
I have sort of been busy with stuff related to my sewing.
I, like most makers (read hoarder) can’t bear to part with even the smallest scraps of pretty fabric. It’s great to have around and always comes in handy. There is always one bit that is just perfect for a certain something. It brings with it storage difficulties though.
All makers have storage issues to a greater or lesser extent and there just doesn’t seem to be the perfect solution especially if you are badly short of space.
I just couldn’t resist these two lovely wine cases that I found at a car boot sale (where else??) recently. They are a very good and attractive storage solution for my appliqué scraps that have been, until now, either escaping the confines of a shallow sided basket or in a deep hessian bag which makes getting at all of them a bit of a challenge.
These little beauties will sit under my sewing desk where the bags used to reside and I am happy that they are an attractive and tidy solution.
I have separated the patterns from the plains to make it even easier and I am quite pleased with the results.
Let’s not think about that, got to get on with the making bits now!
