My Working Space

You know how things get shoved in the cupboard and end up
lost forever, well today I found my hidden treasure's and I say
treasures's as I didn't realise how much was in there.

As my Laundry/Sewing Room are shared......... things
get a little tight on space at times and I have the habit of just
opening the door and throwing things in.

But today I came up with the idea of some shelving at the end of the cabinet
right behind the door.
Brilliant!!.....I am so pleased with my self shelves.......... p.s helps also when
hubby is a cabinetmaker........a girl has to have some benefits, right!!

Anyhoo, my lovely DD decided to help me out in empting all the 
cupboards and sorting out my stash.....what a lovey afternoon I had
finding fabric, folding it up nicely and stacking it neatly
in my new shelves.

I am convinced........ no not really........ that,  I don't need to 
go near a fabric shop for a while.
Shame though, its not going to happen............
as I am a self confessed fabraholic.............sigh!!!!!..........Oh well!!!
It could be worse.
I was in my element this afternoon with all this
yummy goodness......... even my DD was getting
excited...... she was planning a few quilts
for herself.........Shhh!! don't tell her but I think I
have her hooked.
Oh No!.... not two fabraholics in the family. Life's tough hey!!
Here she is working on her second quilt in the last month,
she already has plans for number three and four as presies for friends.
It's nice to have something in common, I will post photos
of the quilt she is working on's a hint, its made with Good Fortune by Kate Spain.

See you Soon

Hi Mandy, It's exciting when you find some of your lost treasures. I love the way your daughter is hooked too. Patchworking is contagious, in a nice way!! Regards, Anita.

Hi Mandy, loving your stash ... wish I had the room to store my fabric this way ... mine is shoved in boxes and bags, due to lack of room. Glad your daughter is into quilting, too ... mine loves it, but only to take possession of the latest quilt I am making !!!!

What an extremely enviable fabric stash!! I really love looking at photos of fabric stashes!! Your shelving is also fantastic - easy to see all the colours you have etc. Enjoy it! Happy Stitching, Susie
