Tidy shelves...



OK the top one isn't, but that one isn't mine!!!

Hi Jan,

I do love the spring garden quilt, also the one above that looks like a T shape reminds me of a x-sstitch design my friend made me for a Biscornus,

Take care
Tracey

Hi Jan, Your quilts are lovely - I think that it is going to take a while to get them quilted! What an impressive collection of beads!
Your postcard arrived safely yesterday and it was absolute joy when I opened up the package. It is beautiful!! I love how it sparkles and shines. Thank you so much Jan.

Good grief woman - is there any room for you in your house!!

Seriously though you've got amazing array of books, magazines and beads - I'm so jealous!

Your quilts are just beautiful too :o)

HI TRACEY,
Glad you are back with us in Blogland, that is my friend Jean's quilt, it is lovely but as yet I have no idea how to quilt it!!!!!

HI ROS,
Isn't it awful, all those beads, I shall have to do something with them before then to justify buying so many....

HEY ANGELA,
Sorry, it looks as though I am boasting, I'm not, I am shocking myself actually with just how much stuff I have. It is lovely to finally get it all organised to how I really like it. Just ordered some boards off EBay for my fabrics, so when they come I will be sorting the cupboard out......again!!!!!

HI SUSAN,
Go on with you, you are making me feel so bad now.....

HI NOEL,
Not done yet, still loads to do in fact, the fabric is going to take an age, but I have seen how I want to do it and have ordered the boards from EBay as I said above, looking forward to getting them to experiment at the folding lark!!!! I wish I lived near you, we could have such fun dipping in each others stashes. lol xx

Thank you one and all for the comments on this post.

As usual stunning quilts my friend. The beads, well......... You make my pathetic little efforts in tidying my sewing room look very sad.

Hi Di,
I am getting there slow but sure. I have some boards on order for my fabric. That will take forever to sort but I am determined.
