Yeah, I mostly do apparel sewing (with some knit and crochet thrown in).  So I end up with moderate sized scraps, but they usually aren't big enough to use for more clothing.  I keep meaning to make some quilts out of the scraps, but half of them aren't the right type of fabric.  And as much as I would craft just for crafting sake, then I still end up with something that will just sit on a shelf taking up space with no purpose--just like my stash.

So I'm jumping on the photos-of-truth bandwagon.  And I know the photos are dark, but it's the basement.  We all deal.  (I call it the disaster room in homage to the X-men's danger room.)



It's actually *mostly* organized.  I really just need to take care of all the piles and boxes that are on the floor.  Then I would actually be able to get to all the stuff under my sewing bench.  Like my boxes of fabric and patterns.



I do quick jobs right at the bench, standing up.  But when there's some serious action going on, I make myself wipe down the kitchen table and take the machines there.

My biggest organizational challenge is figuring out what to do with all the leftover stuff after I've finished a project.  Anybody have a system for dealing with that?

I've been watching this thread, and I think I'm ready to commit now.  My goal is to finish a UFO each month.  So far I'm ahead, because I've finished two in the last week!  But it seems that I'm working backwards, and finishing the most recent UFO's first.  But I guess that's how they're stacked in the piles in my space.  I'll dig my way through to the oldest!

I'll post pictures soon.

Wait...what!? 
You only bake it for three minutes?  Does that work?  Isn't it still doughy inside? 
You've just blown my mind!

She's sweet.  And I like the simplicity of her dress.

I could be wrong, since I've only printed out the pattern and haven't gotten around to sewing one, but I think the feet are done differently.  I think you sew the legs until you get to the front of the foot.  Then you flatten the foot and sew across the toes.  It's hard to explain.  It reminds me of a flat fold in origami.  Hopefully some one else with more experience will chime in.

Super cute!
I always threaten my hubby with food nick-names, like pumpkin-butter-gooey-cakes.  (real recipe--look it up!)  
And I'm curious what those tickets are for--is it a musical?

I just finished off a roll of wrapping paper and realized that I could make a dozen hats out of the cardboard tube!!!  Christmas bonus!

Maybe I missed it, but what about cutting the hole in the middle of the brim piece (where a head would go)?  Not that I couldn't just figure that out myself....

I keep on staring at the teeth!  Those aren't just ric-rac sewn into the seam, like I thought from the thumbnail.  They're like little, pointy...teeth!  Maybe I'm just not creative enough, because I can't wrap my brain around how you got them to look like they're sticking out of their...gums?   Fantastic!
