There seems to be a general move towards de-cluttering in the online sewing and knitting community at the moment.
This air of spring-cleaning, coupled with my ponderings on how I’m going to renovate our home, The Husband’s new job, and the recent acquisition via my friends of some lovely fabrics have all been milling around in my head. Throw in Colette’s Wardrobe Architect series, and you have the perfect catalyst for a fabric and pattern de-stash session.
Some of the fabrics in my stash, and the one’s from my friends, still very firmly sit within my newfound sense of what I want to sew and wear.
Some do not, even though I loved them at the time of purchase.
It’s all about the colour and the pattern, and, whilst I’m sad that I didn’t get to make them, I’m delighted with this new clarity.
So, now have a pile of fabric and patterns that need new homes.
Over the next week or so I’ll get them all photographed and priced, work out, as best as I can the fabric content, and post them here. There might be something you’d like.
In the meantime, I need to get my act together and start some selfish sewing for me (even though I have the cutest fabrics for Button) as my summer wardrobe is non-existent, and I have no excuse now. I also want to clear the way for the new fabrics I’m looking forward to purchasing once I’ve sewn some of the lovelies I have winking at me from the corner!
