New look Craft Room

A few days have slipped by since I was here last, they have not been frittered away. I have been working away at my Crumb Blocks.





This is part of a long strip that will be the side borders,






this is the other end. I am not sure about that dark stripe, I may cut it out. This will be cut in half lengthways and there is plenty for both sides. The cut aways will be built up to make top and bottom borders.


Here is a section of the Crumb Quilt, I cut the sashing too wide and that is why I am making the colourful borders. I will bind it in either the sashing green or a darker shade.

The move from back to front of the house is complete and I am reasonably happy with the layout, there will be some tweaking I have no doubt.


Most of my small cuts of fabric and notions are here right behind the sewing cabinet.


This is my knitting corner, right next to the sofa all my pattern books are on the bottom shelf, nice and handy. All I need to do is clear a space for my cuppa.


The rest of the yarn storage further along the wall, just like the fabric there is still quite a bit in large storage boxes. I will get to them after some serious crafting.




A close look at the bottom shelves in the knitting corner, I have plenty to keep me busy through the darker months.



A long shot of that wall, the overlocker and a small sewing machine are in the middle, the printer is ready for any pattern that takes my fancy. You can just see a corner of the ironing board, it is far too big and I intend to make a pressing pad to have beside the Janome for when I am making blocks.

I will get photos of the other room asap,but finishing the Crumb Quilt is my number 1 priority. I have another top ready to baste and want to get them done in tandem. hauling my roll of batting around is hot work and the fewer times I do it the better.

Now it is time for me to get off my btm and get dinner on the table.

    1. I am afraid that there are still bags and boxes lurking, all in due course. I need to sew faster.

    1. Most of them are scraps from other quilts, some were gifted and some were won. A small proportion were from Moda scrap bags or fat quarters that I bought.

  6. Now that's what I need to do as my craft stuff and books are spread over three different rooms at the moment! I need some more plastic boxes to separate stuff into and a sort-it box for all the pencils, measures, needle packs, pins,. various scissors etc so I can put my hand straight on things when I need them.

    Ah well, I have all autumn and winter to get around to doing it.

    Pretty quilt by the way.

    1. I have been procrastinating for far too long and just woke up one morning with the decision made to start that day. It was a slog but I am very happy with it.
