Hello what's This All About???

Today I went with my sister Deb to a quilting shop on Unley Road (in Adelaide) called Riverlea Cottage.

Well only two words can explain what this shop is like......"Fabric Porn" 100% "Fabric Porn".

I have been to the Woodside quilting shop, but this Riverlea Cottage is just sooooooooooo much better.

We spent just over an hour there and yes I bought some beautiful fabric, but its a secret until tomorrow.

We called into Rundall Mall and went to Lincraft and Spotlight. Today was a real fabric crawl, arrived home at 4.30.

At 5.30 I went into the sewing room to claim it back, as Pa flew home yesterday.

What took 3 hours to do??? Well lets take a look, shall we??

I emptied all my fabric out of the first 3 draws for Pa to use while he was visiting. So the draws needed to be put back to what they were.

But after seeing the way quilting shops store and present their fat 1/4's, I thought I'd like to do this too.

Amy gave me some of these wooden boxes from work and they are just what I wanted and needed to store my fabric.

Three hours later....................................

Oh yeah baby............ how cool is this draw with a wooden box inside?

Oh look more fabric. By the time I folded and sorted colours and packed. I have decided to catch up on some blogging.

I also managed to have a whole draw bare after sorting all the fabrics out. Now I have more of an idea of what I have for any projects down the track.

Bought this box for $2.00 at Spotlight today.
  • What is it for???
  • Is it empty??

Guess you'll have to wait until tomorrow sometime.

Your only limited by your imagination.

Very nicely organised Leanne, I hope it stays that way for you, I have tried something similar, it looked lovely for about a week, and then it was all messy again, think I need someone to tidy after I have pulled fabrics out.
