What we're starting with

Today I have some running around to do and won't be home much, so I probably won't get to make a dress today. =(.  Not a great start to my blogging career.

But I do want to introduce my fabric collection.  In my spare room, here's my sewing supply setup:

As you see, I have unfinished projects hanging, plastic chest of drawers of fabric and notions, and ironing board against the wall.  Oh, and overflow fabric stacked on top of the drawers!  And, the white and brown box is mending projects.  Probably should get to those before I start too many new things, huh? (Yeah, right).

I am quite proud of my drawer organization:

Not bad, huh?
Ideally, I will make lots of wonderful things and the fabric will be turned into usable garments in my closet.  It just barely fit in the plastic drawers, and then I went out and bought more:

at JoAnn's "Columbus Day Sale"--half off on their clearance fabrics!  I stocked up.

Well, today I will get something done--I will pre-wash and design, and plan for my next sewing project.
