Swimming in a Sea of Cotton

Here is the beginning of a fabric stash, currently hiding out in this, my new blue sewing basket and wicker basket.
So far, the basket has my mostly finished first (and rather sad) attempt at cross-stitch.
Some pre-cut scraps from the Quilt Rack. Truly, I'm just a magpie. Not that I've ever sewn anything in my life, but I'm rather ambitious. Good for a first project?
Already I'm sensing a colour tendency here. Who'd have thought brown would be so delightful?
This is, unfortunately, just a scrap, destined for a quilt. I wish I had the skill and yardage to make something wearable with this. It's my favourite so far.

You can do it! Sewing-- like anything takes practice. Get those seams straight, and you can do anything! If you need a hand, you know where to find me! Get in there and sew that dress! Wow, that was a lot of exclamation marks.

Where is the quilt rack? I needs to get me a 40 pack of fabric.

Thanks for the encouragement!


S, the Quilt Rack is on Wilson Street, just past the Needle Emporium. It's in a little mini-mall with a Timmy Ho's and other places (I think it's next to a wine-making place). I really like going in there :)

Sewing, hm? Then I guess I could pack some fabric into that package as well, right? I'm sure I'll find something nicely brown. :)
