As I mentioned before, work has been really busy. We've had so much going on, and I think knowing that I'll be out for a little while on maternity leave, I want to make sure everything's buttoned-up before I go. We're also trying to get the house in order. Moving rooms around, consolidating, cleaning and purging... it's amazing how much you can accumulate! A major area of focus has, of course, been my craft room. I had been saving small scraps of fabric for unknown projects, hoarding patterns and all the while, not making a dent in anything by actually making anything. So, I decided a deep cleaning is due.
|The 'before' shot of my pattern storage (aka, everywhere) and some of the larger pieces of fabric.|
|After the cleanup. Patterns are now contained to just three bins. Fabric scraps have been incorporated to shelving (freeing up three tubs that were under my sewing table).|
|All of my patterns, sorted by designer.|
|My stacks of vintage patterns that will probably be sold. Still need to assess the condition of them .|
So I haven't been completely unproductive! And I've been trying to check in with my blog reader at least once a week. So hopefully you'll start to see me commenting on posts again and also updating my blog a little more regularly.
