You never know what goes on behind closed doors...

...so I thought I should share what goes on behind mine!!!  Well actually I am about to come out of my closet!!!  Sounds great aye!!??




Sorry to disappoint but it is what's behind the doors in this cupboard that lives a quiet life in my sewing room.  The doors have stayed firmly shut for a while now.  There has been promise of great things to come out of this cupboard but alas, it has not happened.

But today I had to open the doors to add to the STASH!!!








OMG look at all the fabric!!!!

TOF should lock me in here for at least a year and maybe I might actually get around to doing something with all that glorious fabric.  Not to mention all the other delights that lie safely tucked away in baskets, boxes and bags just waiting to be made into something fan-feckin-tastic!

You see today I finally remembered to put a bag of stuff in my car to drop it off at habitat.  And as you know you can not visit such a place without going in to take something home.



Today's find was the fabulous green blanket for $7-50, that needed to be put with all the other fabulous blankets I seem to have collected and forgotten about.  They all seem quite content in their basket.  There are grand plans for these.  So today I have even ordered some wool dyes so I can get to and start creating!! And I did get TOF a magazine for -50c.


Now for my fabric STASH!!

Ready for your close up Darlings??

Top right hand corner is the new piece of retro super bright glorious fabric that is planned to be turned into a tunic dress of some sort or another.  I tend to make it all up as I go along pinching bits from patterns or shapes from existing clothes.

While pottering in my chick-cave (sewing room) I found other bags and baskets of neglected items.  Oscar and Sheba were hanging about like a couple of bad smells and decided to ham it up for you all with a mullet wig we have!!



Then I remembered to take some pics of some other things to share with you.  Like:  This super cool Mexican artwork that I got off Trade Me for a steal and now all the other stuff they sell is expensive.  And the garden bench seat I got TOF to help me pick up last weekend that I also got off trade me.



That's it bloggers, I have done faff all today but hey I'm 50 now and that's what you are allowed to do at my age.  It's just plain fabulous darlings!!!  Probably have Jak's rugby to go and witness tomorrow so with a bit of luck it will be gumboot weather and I can treat him to me wearing my Sloggers!!!  Oh the joys of being the mother to teenage boys, the "OMG what are you wearing mum" is great!!

♥♥  Have a wonderful weekend doing whatever spins your wheels  ♥♥

Your fabric stash puts my horrific pile to shame, it's so much neater and well organised!
I think I need to put wigs on the cats and see if they look as cute as your pooches! x
