It's the middle of Summer in Australia, so definitely shorts weather. I've made quite a few Mud Puddle Splashers this season and while I love the pattern, it was time to try another style. Oliver + s offer a free shorts pattern, so I thought I'd give them a go.
I like the freedom of sewing projects where I can make things up as I go along. It brings out the creative side in me. Crazy patchwork is one such technique - joining scraps of fabric together in whatever formation takes my fancy and ending up with a quilt block; not that it has to be used in a quilt.
Today I thought I'd show you how I store my reels of thread. No fancy schmancy thread racks in my sewing room. Not because I don't like those lovely wooden racks. Simply because I've gone for low cost thread storage solutions.
