Clearing the Decks

Curiously enough, I only have one project on the go right now. Usually, I have a few going and I'll switch between them whenever I loose interest or need some space to think. I have lots of ideas in my head as to projects and a lot of bins with materials for those projects, but it's that first cut which I think I'm trying to avoid. Many of these projects have come out of my own head, rather than from a pattern so starting them is seeming a bit daunting. I have a feeling I'm just going to have to take a deep breath and start cutting (and hopefully I won't screw up too badly)

Another reason for my procrastination, was the disaster that is my sewing room. Since we've moved, I have the great fortune of no longer have to work on half of the dining room table (we did need to eat). My messes have gotten a bit out of control so it was time to tidy up.

I'm loving the sewing surface we made. It was really easy and IKEA has the perfect counters (they're thick so I don't think I'll have to worry about warping). Now all it needs is a pad for pressing seams on. The walls are pretty bare, but I have some quilts and fabric still to go up.

While cleaning, I noticed my scrap bag was getting a little too full. I have packaged up three bags for anyone who would like to swap some scraps. I have a lot of batiks as well as some prints.

Most of the pieces should be sewable but a few really small pieces may have snuck in as well. The first three people to comment are the lucky ones to swap (I'll e-mail you after). If you happen to miss out and really wanted one, I can make some more bags as well.

So what do you want to swap for???

I would love to get other people's scraps - it doesn't have to be fabric either trims, embelishments would be great as well. I've filled a sandwich sized ziplock bag so something in that scale was what I had in mind (so shipping wouldn't be all that expensive)
