Cleaning, Sorting, Organising, Oh My!

First off thanks for your lovely comments on the last post. I appreciate your feedback!

So What Have I Been Up To?

My fabric collection has been living in between 12-15 BIG plastic tubs around the house and this week I decided to have a clean up, have a look and see what's there. I also needed to do a long overdue cull and cut down the amount of fabric I have. Some treasures I've found,
First off a curtain I found last year. It is a linen blend I think, but it doesn't really crush. I'm thinking of cushion covers, a bag or two and possibly a skirt.
The Brown is a stretch and it is going to make a really lovely wrap dress.

Gorgeous John Kaldor fabric. It kinda reminds me of giraffe print.
Pastel purple giraffe print. Not sure what to make with it yet.
At the end of the week I ended up with six big bags of fabric which I am giving away to my friend who runs an art and craft therapy program at the centre for mentally delayed children she works for.
So I am not at all upset to part with it as I know that they will be making all sorts of crazy and creative things. I think it would have been harder if I was just sending it back off to the opshop but I am completely happy with how it's worked out.

So with the small scraps I couldn't bear to part with I've been doing this:
I love hexagons.
I have no idea what this will end up being but it's fun building it bigger and bigger.
Well I hope you had a great weekend,


  1. Very nice idea to give your unwanted fabric to the therapy program. It is nice to think they will make good use of it and it will help them too. I can't wait to see what you make with the fabric you are keeping.

  2. Well done, sometimes you need to destash.....
