Trouble is there was so much of it I didn't know where to start at tidying it away.
I am embarrassed to share this photo but wanted you to know how much hard work it took to achieve the end result:
...just peeping behind the chair is an unseen huge basket of fabric and when a project has been completed the left overs get added to the ever growing pile.
This basket is large and i love it but it's totally impractical, being full of larger pieces it's a struggle to keep sorting through:
... well, this week it could be put off no more. Time to start the mammouth task.
Turned out my voluntary toddler helper wasn't the best aide to this task and it wasn't completed in a day, not even 2.
Whilst sitting amongst the mess and grumbling to myself about how to get out of it I spotted a postcard for Cally & Co fabric shop, Stamford...Bam...inspiration struck!
They have baskets full of bundles of remnant fabrics wrapped with string...
...definately worth the time spent:
...grey box is full of larger bundles:
...vegetable rack holds the smaller pieces:
...canvas storage box holds the tiny pieces that are too small to roll but they may come in handy so can't bear to part with them:
...can now reach the plug which has been hidden behind a cupboard for many years.
Now it has to stay this tidy... can hear chuckling in my head as I type.
