All moaning aside though, I have to say that the good side of the sorting is how it has taken me down Memory Lane. So many pieces of my fabric were gifts from lovely friends! I was reminded of when a very large box arrived unexpectedly on my doorstep from a friend in the US....it was filled with wonderful things such as beautiful fabric, tiny buttons, patterns and even a Natterer doll!!!! And another friend, May from Australia, who regularly sent me fat quarters that she'd seen and "just knew" I'd love!!! May passed away last year so those pieces are particularly special.....it really is time I made something nice with them, instead of always "saving" them until I find just the right outfit to make!! And lots of other lovely pieces that were sent to me over the years! I really am very lucky and blessed with my friends!
Anyway, in case anyone is in any doubt that I might be exagerating, here are some photos I took today!!!
The Sashas and Natterers finally see the light of day again!!
The empty (for now!) boxes are starting to stack up precariously!
But this is still the state of the floor! (Oh and you can see that I've spread out into the hall now too! Oooops!!!
More boxes waiting to be sorted!
And more fabric waiting to be ironed, photographed, bagged and boxed!
I need to start on this shelf unit next, and find a better home for the BJD boxes on top!
These boxes are full of denim....I mean how much denim does one dolly seamstress need??
Oh what fun (!), more things to sort and find a home for!
