When I'm selecting the fabrics for my beach scene quilts, I do create quite a mess. I need to be able to see every fabric, and because I use them multiple times, it would be a complete waste of time to refold each one every time, so I end up with masses of loosely-gatehred fabrics covering every available surface around my work area. But I thought it was a bit rich for James to come in and comment on the mess this morning! He clearly has forgotten just how bad his room was a while ago, and how long it took us (mostly me) to tidy it all properly! I, on the other hand, have not!
For the record, I finished the fabric selection before lunch, and the fabrics are now all neatly refolded and sorted back into their piles. The water prints (including the reef ones) fill an entire shelf in my cupboards - although I'm still on the lookout for more. The more I have, the easier it is to find the right piece for each spot, and finding a new range of water/ocean prints makes my day!
This evening I have pieced all the water sections, and joined them together; next up are the sun and the section of sand.
