Here is a before picture:
Sorry for the slightly poor photographs today by the way, my camera has been located but sadly not my charger, so i had to resort to using my phone camera. It does the job, but the lighting is not right. Here is another picture, after a few hours of organising...
Much better! It is by no means fully sorted yet, as there is still some more furniture to go in the room yet, and hopefully some shelves at some point, but it is certainly looking a lot more like a usable space. Which is good news as i have many Sewing Plans for the next few months!
On Saturday i took some time out of unpacking and sorting out to go fabric shopping with the lovely Marie. It was great to have a second opinion, and we found plenty of fabrics which would perfectly suit our favourite patterns! So what did i buy? Have a look...
|Fabric for my Colette Crepe Dress - complete with contrast sash|
|A funky Pendrell Blouse perhaps?|
|Super cute fabric destined, perhaps, for Christmas quilts for |
some little people i know
|Lovely maroon lace, maybe for a top?|
When i was in Ikea i also found myself in their Textiles department - something i don't remember noticing last time i was there, but those were in my pre-sewing days! Most of the fabric were heavy upholstery-types, but i did find some muslin-like fabric prices at a bargainous £1.62 per metre! So i snapped up the rest of the roll...about 6 and a half metres in total. That should keep me going for a bit!
|Lots of bargainous muslin!|
