not enough space

I have now tidied my sewing room (it seriously needed it) but I'm shorter on space than I was before.  I claim to not understand it, but between me and Mr Mastercard, I know exactly why there is less space... 

... 3m of curtain fabric from Ikea, for Lisa's bedroom

... 10 FQs for £10 from Cottonpatch, well, it could have been rude not to as such a good price - aren't they YUMMY

... 2m pink batik to border the pink and purple pinwheels

... and these Moda Aviary fabrics to compliment the ones I got from CrossPatch a while ago; the ones I used for Kelli's baby's quilt.  I got these form the states - they got sent to dad's to save on postage costs, and astonishingly, one of the grandparents at school has a house just 5 minutes from Dad's so she kindly brought it back after their recent trip :-)

And the final photo is an almost-finish.  This is the Arnold's Attic fabric I won at Christmas that is finally quilted and half bound.  I've stitched the binding to the front, and pinned it to the back, but I'm fed up with it, and it doesn't have a home planned, so it can go back into to the pile until I fancy some hand sewing!


  1. I've been doing some Fridat Night tidying too - the wild and crazy times are well and truly over!

    That IKEA fabric is great, maybe we need to go and buy a shelf, or some other excuse!

  2. Fridat? Friday, see 10.25pm and soooo tired!

  3. YOu've been busy! I LOVE that IKEA fabric. Looking forward to seeing some finishes :)

  4. You'd better rev the machine up then! Unless you're having the thunder and lightning over there.
