Over the holidays my sewing room takes a beating as it becomes the 'wrapping centre' - code for the room that all gift and paper and cards get tossed into until they come out again in pretty little packages. It's great to be able to contain the mess but it is not a big room so sewing is temporarily suspended until I can clear things out again. I finally took the bull by the horns yesterday and did some long overdue sorting and organizing (you know it's time when your niece is musing aloud as to whether you might have hoarding tendencies...). I've also rearranged the furniture a bit - it's a nice change.
It really didn't take that long and now that they are all neatly pressed it's amazing how much new fabric I have to add to my blues - there has to be at least 4 or 5 metres! There's a red and blue log cabin that I saw on Mia's blog that they will be perfect for - hers was made with scraps too. I also want to use some for a Spiderweb à la Krista Withers... Swoon.
I was going to pitch the back yokes with the labels in them, but I think it would be fun to work them into the quilt too.
