Shame about the blue carpet -
I have kept working on my sewing room make-0ver, oh I mean "folding my fabric" and it has led to colour coding the buttons, and colour coding the fabrics (which I must admid I'd never done before - such a sensible idea!!!) and finding lots of "to do" projects. The room is still in much disarray, but is a work in progress.
I had some wonderful help from my little boy Peter last night with putting different fabric in the different piles. He knew when I touched the fabric on my cheek that it was the "flanellette" pile. He knew the difference between a "useful" scrap and one that had to go in the rubbish pile. He kept saying to me "don't tell me mummy, I know!!" ... and he actually did, I was impressed. He really enjoyed the idea of finding more fabric, and find more we did. It seemed to be in every direction we looked. Once I had exhausted all the piles, I stood back and thought to myself .."I don't actually have that much fabric." I must have thought out loud, and my daughter (9 years)got a little clear button and put it on the floor near the piles. She said for me to imagine that I was the button, and the piles of fabric were buildings in a city. Each piece of fabric was a storey of that building. She walked the button through Fabric City looking up at all the tall buildings, explaining to me that; Mum, you did have quite a lot of fabric. It was a good analogy.
