Too much Fabric?

I always thought one can't have enough fabric but I think I have changed my opinion. After having a sewing room plus a crafts room in Shanghai I had to squeeze everything into one room, and not a very big one at that. But I am finally finished and I'm quite pleased with the result. My fabrics are organized by size and colour as well as themes and this is how it looks now:

Mind you, that's not all I have. There are several more plastic containers stored under various beds. I really have to start making lot of quilts, otherwise I can never buy new fabrics (and how sad would that be?).

So I had finally some time to be creative and I made this glass topped box. I love box making as it satisfying to finish something in a day or two (and not to add to the ever growing number of UFOs).

Till next time, take care.

It looks beautiful Vreni!

In all these months that you have left Shanghai and I helped you packing, I wondered if you could manage to fit in all your precious fabric and boxmaking materials into your new apartment. You succeeded, wow! It makes me so happy to see this. The world can go down, you have got you own sanctuary again, a place everyone needs to feel happy.

And your first Singaporian box :) wow. It looks gorgious!

But I don't remember this paper.... Did you buy it in Singapore ;) hahaha

x bye my dear, love to see you sooooooon

Oooh, all that fabric looks so beautiful! And your box -- what a fun hobby! Don't worry about not being able to buy more fabric -- somehow we always manage to justify it, no matter how much fabric we have LOL!
