The Material Lady


Today you can find me at the very lovely Lawson and Lotti's blog Sewing Space feature.  My sewing room is called the 'back room' in this house, what a glamourous name you are thinking, right?  It is a messy and chaotic place, piles of things everywhere, piled in some sort of order but there are a lot of little heaps- my creative brain is a busy place!

I had a lovely Sunday car boot sale moment today, a regular trader asked me if I was "The material lady?"  Don't you just love that?  He had some great vintage treasure for me, what a great start to the day.  I need to get on with hand sewing a quilt binding, gotta be ready for tomorrow!
Enjoy your Sunday x

  3. Hi Kerry! Material Lady sounds so sweet! I think it's in me, too... boxes and boxes materials! Your visiting post with your sewing place is wonderful! I guess most of us fancy those beautiful sewing places where everything is nicely in order - but how it works?! I know about where I found all my things and materials, but they are always a mess because I need so many fabrics, colours and patches in every work - no one has time to put them straight away back on their place! I think it gives also inspiration to see the materials around.
    Happy sewing! x Teje

  4. Loved having a rootle round your back room, so much inspiration, it's fab! Also love the idea of having someone know you and save fabric for you - I've never been quite brave enough to try car booting here...

  5. Had the car boot lady saved you some material goodies? (You being the material lady who is always looking for fabric). What a sweet thing to do.

  7. Ah one of the many things I miss from our time living in England is the car boot sales, I used to love going and also being a seller.

  8. The Back Room, indeed! The Back Room sounds scary, like a place that horrible things happen and no one can hear you scream... I know, I need to stop letting my husband pick the movies!! ;-) Seriously, why not just rename it Your Studio? That way, every time you refer to the place where you're working, you're reaffirming the legitimacy of your art and your craft. Artisans work their magic in studios; butchers and stockists work in Back Rooms.

  9. That's really lovely, IMO, to be called the material lady and have someone think of you to bring special goodies for you to look at and purchase. So sweet!!
