The fresh year is upon us. Work starts tomorrow. So, so luckily, I had a rare day to myself at home, family off with grandparents after two weeks of intense mummying. It was lovely! I finally had the time and energy to attack the wicked space that had become a sore vortex in our bedroom — rather than a nice sewing space.
Several piles later, and shifting stuff around into fresh boxes gave me some idea of what I actually have: a lot of fabric. OK, so perhaps not buying any more anytime soon might be a good idea?
I love scraps, yet never got round to organising them as I had hoped. So my first mission was to make some more scrap buckets for colour-sorted scraps, as I had vowed to do last June. That felt good! Whites/neutrals on the left, then blues, greens/yellows, and reds/pinks.
Then, having emptied bags into other bags, and piles into boxes, I could finally finish my cushion that I had started quite recently. Big and chunky on the sofa, good for flopping on.
OK, so now let the term begin (again)! At least I can stare at my sewing table and actually see parts of it now, even if I will have little time for it in the weeks to come, unless I cut out sleep.
Happy tidying! JJ
