This week involved no actual sewing; although I got my sewing space sorted out and am now populating my nice new IKEA Expedit shelf with my stash!
Please excuse the mess!
Mmm, stash! (That's not all of it, by the way. I've got a large-size suitcase full of random FQs and my batik collection!
Sewing desk and ironing board!
I think I'll put the cutting table behind me, making a 'U' shaped workspace.
And behind me as I sit at my desk, my haberdashery shelves full of batting and non-quilting fabric, clothes patterns and odds and ends, books, and spare sheets for quilt backs!
Still very disorganised - I have to work out exactly how I'm going to divide up all these stashy bits. And how I'm going to use up what I've already got.
*lays down the law* No more fabric purchases until I've finished another two quilt tops!
In the meantime, I haven't been entirely quiet on the quilting front. I've been putting together a tutorial for Madame Parfait's awesome and amazing 'Rainbow Blossom' block (which I renamed the Snowflake block).
Parts 1 and 2 are posted, but Part 3 is giving me trouble and may not be around until next Monday. I apologise for the delay, but life is being a right and proper pain in the butt. (How dare it interfere with my sewing?)
It's more like the 'Northern and Eastern Sydney MQG' now, since there's a Wollongong MQG and a Greater Western Sydney MQG - which is all to the awesome since Sydney is a horrendously sprawly city and trying to find somewhere that everyone could meet every month was one of the problems with organising the Sydney MQG chapters in the first place.
Anyway, the first meeting is this weekend from 10am at the City Extra restaurant in Circular Quay.
And now it’s time to par-tay over at the Linky Party!
