i keep meaning to take pics of the sewing room... when it's clean. but let's face it, i'm always going to have piles of fabric everywhere, the ironing board is up 90% of the time and i may never get around to filling up my inspiration board (i have a pile of things to go on it, just no tacks) so this is just how it is : )
i bought a bookcase for mae's room on ebay the last week only to find that it doesn't quite fit where i had intended it to go. shane had picked it up in 40ºC weather and so wasn't too impressed, especially as i am notorious for not reading instructions/doing things impulsively and he'd asked me if i'd measured the space. i did... but obviously not well enough. anyway, i saved the day by saying i could use it in the sewing room as i was just using super cheap pine shelving in there and had always wanted something a bit nicer. long story short, i had to haul all my fabric off it's existing shelves, which led to some lengthy reorganising when i put it into the new ones. time to be a bit brutal with the fabric, time to be honest about what i will and will not use, time to find new homes for the fabric i will probably never get around to using. so, i've got two big bundles of vintage fabric to send anywhere in australia (sorry overseas readers but the postage would be insane to send this anywhere else). it's pretty much all vintage sheeting or pillowcases, with the odd handkerchief thrown in. just leave a comment over the next few days and i will draw a couple of names on february 1st. here's what is up for grabs:
::update:: entries for the giveaway are now closed, i'll post the lucky recipients later today. and, for the people who asked about the inspiration board, it's made of a material called Krommenie, cut to size and then painted by my husband. he got it from work so i have no idea where you can buy it retail in australia - maybe bunnings?
