Well, this week I have not done any sewing but I have been working on my stash in a roundabout sort of way.
While a lot of my sewing room is quite well organised there is always some that seems to defeat me. Some months ago I tossed it all in a plastic laundry basket and shoved it under the table until I had time to deal with it. At the beginning of the week I sorted it into 2 piles – fabric and pattern pieces.
Most of the fabric has been sorted but yesterday I spent quite a bit of time sorting sorting out pattern pieces. There was a mixture of commercial drafted patterns. Over the years I have offloaded quite a few patterns and more have gone in the op shop bag. They are ones that I will never use again – either due to the sizing, being dated styles or simply not fitting with my current style.
As you can see from the photo, this is still a work in progress but I am determined to finish it before the weekend as the bed will be needed when Miss O and Izz come to stay for the weekend.
On a more positive note, here are the completed patterns all sorted and stacked.
Now that I know what I have it will be back to the sewing and I will hopefully have some more to show you next Sunday.
