ok so last week I took photos of my creative space exactly as it sat - a space, yes - inspiring and organised? Well, no! I know we all share that need to just get in and get started on whatever crafty project is on the go and so an organised space is pretty essential, whether that space is a corner of the dining room table or a part of a room.
So, step one in my mini-reno is a new home for my beloved and steadily growing fabric stash. I have gone from this
Thanks to all the helpful comments last week a quick (?) trip to Ikea on Saturday afternoon was required. What's that you say? A close up of the fabric bit? Oh ok!
I can't tell you what fun I had on Saturday night rediscovering some of these little beauties, carefully folding them and stacking them into semi-colour co-ordinated stacks. Had someone suggested to me ten years ago that this would constitute a fun Saturday night for me I would have died laughing and then ordered another cocktail!
Anyway the fabric is currently only occupying the top two shelves but I am realistic about the need to soon move to the other cubicles if needed! At the moment the two baskets at the bottom are holding small scrappy bits of fabric, interfacing and all that jazz. Oh and three massive coffee sacks but more on that another time. The basket that once contained the fabric now contains clothes that will hopefully be repurposed at some point.
So, slightly more organised in this little corner with more to come! Stay tuned :)
