With all the Christmas sewing, and the fabric purchases over Thanksgiving, my sewing room is a war zone. This is what it normally looks like:
Today, it is the war zone, all spread out over the floor (I don’t think I even got it all in the photo :-)).
See the two piles along the side of the table at the back….in fact, any pile that is close to my project table that does not have a book, paper pattern or cut pieces on top…..that is all new fabric ready to be stored. I have a problem though…..I have run out of storage. After only a year, my 18 cubby holes in my project desk, has no more room. I am seriously thinking about joining the fabriholics anonymous pledge.
The rest of the mess are project piles, or a scrap pile I need to sort. Luckily, I have two weeks to either complete the project piles or clean up my war zone. Thank you for vacation!!!
In the meantime, in celebrating these fabric purchases, here is my Sunday Stash for this week. I purchased these fabrics, as I am loving the mustards, pale blues, reds, blacks + grays that have been appearing in a couple of recent lines.
The first ones are all from “Bark and Branch” by Eloise Renouf for Cloud 9 Fabrics. I purchased these from Hawthorne threads.
These cute low-volumes that continue the blue, black and mustards are from “Up, up & away” by Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9 Fabrics, also purchased at Hawthorne threads.
Finally, “Twigs” by Charley Harper for Birch Fabrics….purchased from Fabric Worm (as they were on sale).
One last look at them all together, hopefully you can also see how fabulous these could be together. Now, to decide what to do with them???
Linking up with Fiona @ Finding Fifth, for her second to last Sunday Stash.
They look great. I have a similar problem. I need to use up old fabric to make room for new.
My sewing room looks worse!
Thanks for posting pics of your sewing room! Mine looks very, very similar. I love the fabrics that you have put together! Can’t wait to see what you make with them. Any ideas yet?
I wish I had as much space as you do…. The piles are on my desk, on the floor, in the cupboard, and now, overflowing into the living room. I’m very lucky to have a room to myself, but it’s very small. Your fabrics are beautiful, and I quite see why you couldn’t do without them!
So pretty! Maybe you should just join the fast until you have room for all your fabric 🙂
My sewing room as the same problem!
Lots of gorgeous fabrics in there! I’d love to steal some of that from you ;D
Your sewing room looks almost as bad as mine, alas mine is just a mess because I can’t seem to sort anything out, rather than because there’s much particularly special going on in there.
Hmm, I have to admit that my sewing room looks just like that most of the time and I don’t even have that much fabric….
A girl can never have too much fabric! I don’t have a sewing room so my fabric lives in boxes under our bed, my husband has learned to live with it.
Welcome to the fray! Perfection is for the birds. 🙂 I’m in town all this week, if you want to get together and sew a bit, give me a holler!
That sounds great!! Where and when?
On the 27th and 30th Cary quilting have sew-ins
Very cool! I could do either of those days. Is it something you have to sign up for?
Probably good to go out in the world. I’m taking my dining room table to mom’s very soon and likely won’t have anywhere to work for a few weeks. 🙂
Just need to ring ((919) 238-9739 – Cary Quilting Company) and register which involves just leaving your name – how does the 27th sound? Here are the details looks like it is open 10-5 and you can stay as long as you want http://www.caryquilting.com/collections/quilt-classes
Okie dokie sounds good, I’ll call them Thursday. I should able to get there around noon.
Okie dokie, sounds good! I will call them Thursday and should be there around noon on Friday.
Sounds good, I will target noon as well 🙂
I love your sewing space…it seems so organized, so full of light (and fabric). I definitely have space envy.
Your sewing room is so gorgeous it makes me a little sad about my space!! I love those ‘twigs’ fabrics the colours are so rich and yummy 🙂
My sewing room definitely looks worse – at least your pieces are folded! I have yards of fabric sort of rolled up and heaped on boxes overflowing with batting and canvas and…..it is too horrible to contemplate until Boxing Day when I plan to pack and sort it all and move into a new sewing room!!
A new sewing room sounds delightful – how exciting!!!
Great sewing room and stash! Looking forward to see your new quilt designs! Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014, Barbora
Thank you so much, and a Merry Christmas and New Year to you too 🙂
Sorry I know this is an old post but I’m still behind from Christmas. 🙂 I like that your stash purchases often include things I haven’t seen before! Very lovely stack.
Thank you, sadly my room still looks very similar. I am waiting for my ikea shelves to be put up and I think I can get most of the things off the ground 🙂
