Crafty Detox

I have a confession.

My craft cupboard (one day I’ll have myself a sewing room!) had become a disorganised mess. It was so bad that I spent more time looking for things than sewing. And given that with 2 toddlers I have very little time to sew, it was very frustrating.

So the last couple of days have been sorting, organising and culling. I have been detoxing my cupboard.

I am so happy with the results, I just had to share. It all looks so pretty now. Not sure if I want to risk messing it up again…

Here is some of my fabric stash. I love being able to see it all easily, but sometimes it makes it hard to choose what to use if I haven’t already decided.


I also found my granny squares hiding in a box. Looking forward to getting stuck into these again…


I now have a basket full of pretty Atsuko Matsuyama pieces. The only problem is that I can’t bring myself to cut into them! They can be hard to come by and expensive, it really needs to be the right project


Another basket I filled with doilies. I have a few left after making 4 table runners for a dear friends wedding.


My ribbons, ric-rac and lace trims are neatly wound and stored so I can easily see them all.


My large collection of vintage patterns didn’t need too much attention as they are stored apart from everything else but these are two of my favourite. On  my list of things to make for Miss Tilly.


I feel like I can really get stuck into my ever-growing to-do list now.

Sorry hubby, you’ll be back to eating your dinner on the couch for a while!!
