A bit of a sort out

I had a massive sort out of my fabric at the weekend, it did my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder no end of good. I am one of those people who needs to tidy my desk at the end of the day, I just like things to be  neat and tidy (preferably at right angles to my desk if I am feeling particularly stressed.)

But while my desk has been tended to, my fabric stash has been slowly consuming the cupboard in which they sit. To the point where I couldn't find fabrics I knew I had without a mammoth search, or even worse, going out to buy a replacement.

These boxes of fabric have been playing on my mind for months so I finally got some time this weekend and sorted them out, phew am I glad! I can now see exactly what I have, they look pretty and I am able to mix and match patterns and colours easily (I really should have done this months go). Although these are just the cottons, the rest are in a box under my desk!!

Ha ha! I used to be a bit of a messy person but find if I have got tight deadlines I just can't cope with the 'mess stress'. This isn't the half of it though I have got boxes of vintage bits under my desk, although they are almost tidy! x

I know what you mean, it's so hard to keep neat when you're being creative, but I'm going to do my best!

I always have a sort out of my craft/art bits and bobs every few months or so. Somehow everything seems to get all mixed up no matter how tidy I try to be! feels good to get things organised though =]
