Crafty cleanup and Sewing projects

Yesterday, I reorganized my craft/fabric closet and used 10 magazine holders from IKEA to consolidate the huge piles taking over my craft room and bedroom. I love these cardboard magazine holders - they work so hard and you can make them so pretty with fabric or collage.

There is still a lack of space to put the magazine holders, but it's a step toward functionality. The fabric is folded, papers are sorted (and now stacked and stashed), Halloween fabric is in a vintage suitcase, scraps are bagged somewhat neatly, did some labeling, some recycling. Overall a very productive day!

The crazy quilt pillow cover is coming along nicely and I've actually made a dent in my mending and alterations pile. Somerset Altered Couture magazine is a dangerous thing. I want to completely transform my wardrobe after looking at all the yummy artistic clothes embellished with fabric and lace and ... So my pink jeans are in process, which might inspire a change in hair color. Intriguing! Or maybe my hair stripe will be dyed to match our upcoming holiday picture outfits - deep blue to go with the midnight blue velvet/satin and beaded black lace dress I'm making.

It must be the chill in the air, maybe the rain, (who knows, who cares?!) that's inspiring me to get so many projects going. Or maybe it's just a manic pre-holiday phase. My creative juices are surging!
