Yup… I’m not just a Fabric Addict… Really!

Well what a week so far- I’m exhausted and it’s only Tuesday! My to do list is ever growing…. so time for a droolworthy post…

….. Pretty Pretty Fabrics…..

So who can resist them? I know I have trouble doing that which easily explains why my fabric tower is pretty much crammed full. Which I discovered yesterday to my dismay when I gently placed my latest acquisions in. And guess what? My thoughts weren’t exactly I need to use some up… but more of where can I store new ones?

Mostly when I go giddy and buy I don’t have a certain project in mind… oops how naughty!

Here’s what’s hiding in the top drawer- aren’t they lovely? And it is a tiny fraction of what I hold… oh dear.

I’m not just a fabric hoarder too… I have a massive collection of beads and papercraft of which I had to add to last week. Not sure what I’m doing there either…. but how can you resist it?!

I’m sure some of it will become WIPS before long. But if you have any nifty pattern ideas or tutorials on what I should make with it feel free to send them my way 🙂

And stop drooling…… I’m thinking of holding a sewalong or sewing circle group (more on that to come) but if you are interested in the idea at this early stage just let me know.

P.S- Oh have you checked out a previous post on the pursey giveaway? 😀 It ends on Sunday 20th May with the winner drawn at 8pm………

Oh dear…. How many works in progress?

Ok.. I finally got round to clearing my desk to make room to a) play with fabrics or b) play with papercrafts i.e the new docrafts goody bag I picked up last week.

However to my dismay I found all these cut out and ready to be sewn.

The bag I remembered it has been on my to do list to finish for well… almost six weeks. It was supposed to be my treat for when I started my new job which was mid April.

However I’ve noticed a stupid mistake! One of the lining pieces I’ve cut out the wrong way. Hopefully I have enough material left do another. It might look ugly now! But it’s my first real bag I’m trying and it’s a fab 50s style pattern by Emma Brennan

Can you guess what the others are going to be? Yup- purses and a funky retroish phone cosy. Well I hope it will turn into a cosy totally my own pattern and playing with it at the moment. We will see……..

Hopefully I can finish these this week and then on to more projects! But what to try next………… I have so many fabrics it’s hard to decide.

How are your WIPS coming along?

So with the price increases the postal service has gotten worse! I’m  used to my post being delivered before 9am now I’m lucky if it’s here before 3pm.

However I did have a lovely surprise this week- isn’t she gorgeous?
