Lovely fat quarters from Gudrun from a giveaway she had on her blog. Almost too pretty to use, but they will get used, just not sure in what just yet.
These scrumptious fat quarters came from Valori Wells from a lovely giveaway she had on her blog last week. I can see these being used for Jenna in birthday gifts, but you'll need to wait a while before you get to see any progress.
Lastly lovely nine patches and a fat quarter from Bren . Who doesn't enjoy nine patches? I never tire of them and Bren used such lovely fabrics( these are a part of a swap that Bren and I are doing together).
Now onto the first part of the title, Creative Mess. I still can't believe that I'm actually putting these photo's on here. I started my housework this afternoon and was making trips back and forth into the sewing room to put things away that had made their way into the living room during the week. I admit I have a bad habit of jut plopping things on either of the sewing tables, without putting them away properly. After several trips into the sewing room today, I just couldn't stand it any longer and decided it needed a good clean out. Plus Hollie will be home in a couple of weeks so I needed to organise better, so that when it comes time to move everything out of there it's not a giant chore.
I'm going to give you the before photo's, and I'll post later with the after photo's so that you know that I did actually clean up.
This table is the first thing you see when you walk into the sewing room, I use this as my cutting table. Although you'd never guess at the moment.
Under all this mess somewhere, is a bed, Hollie's bed to be exact.
I can't believe I've been sewing at this disaster area for the last couple of weeks.
To add to the problem, this was purchased on Saturday. 20 yards of batting. I couldn't pass on the special, 50 % off from Hancocks. If you're interested the sale runs until Thursday I think.
I'll be back later to show you what my clean sewing room can look like.
