What's new in my sewing room?

It has been a little while since I finished my last project but, I don't want you to think that I haven't been busy!!  Apart from the adventure that I went on and wrote about last time, I have had a complete Spring clean in my sewing room.

This has involved hours of folding and re-folding fabrics so that they are now exactly as I want them and a big re-organisation of my many quilting/embroidery books.  I am now much happier with how they are arranged.

It is just as well, as I have added a number of new books to my collection recently and, I needed to make some room for them without the shelves collapsing!!

I have also started cutting out the fabrics for a project from one of my new books.  The book is called 'Nautical Quilts' and is by Lynette Anderson.  I really love this book and I am about to start piecing together a wall hanging called 'All Aboard Wall Quilt' which I think is really cute and will look lovely on my wall!!

I also have a new adventure to look forward to as I have signed up to go on my first quilt retreat.  It is being held by 'Busy Needle Quilting' the last weekend in September and I am really excited to be going!!

Quilt Retreat

Hope you are all working on some exciting projects! Until next time..... xx


  1. I am so impressed with your spring cleaning! Whenever I get the itch to organize my stash, one look, and I walk away from it! Have fun preparing for your first retreat. I bet you will have a lovely time!

  2. Hi Christine,your fabric cupboard looks very organised,love those new books,happy sewing my friend xx

  3. OK - now you're done organizing your space, how about you come help me with mine? Going on a retreat sounds like great fun....we will all be expecting a detailed report once you get back!

  4. You will have a lot more fun working on projects now that your sewing space is so neat and tidy--what a good feeling that must be! I know you will have an awesome time on that retreat--what a fun thing to look forward to! Happy stitching!

  5. It looks fantastic, Christine! You and I were of the same mindset, as I reorganized my sewing room as well. It does make you happy to walk into a newly organized space!
    That retreat looks like a dream!

  6. Well done with your clean up. It always seems daunting at first but once complete it brings great joy. Your fabrics are so neat! I saw Lynette's new book and I look forward to seeing your progress.

  7. Uhi, da hast Du aber richtig aufgeräumt. Das sieht sehr ordentlich aus und nun macht es bestimmt noch mehr Freude Projekte zu starten. Bin gespannt auf den Nautic Quilt.
    Liebe Grüße
