Do you have a PPP?…….. a Patchwork Project Pantry!
You probably do, even though you may not realise it. By PPP, I mean a place where you store all the “ingredients” for the project(s) you intend to make in the future. Your PPP may include fabrics ( specially purchased or pulled from your stash) patterns, threads to match the fabrics (Aurifil of course!), and tools such as freezer paper and fabric markers which will be used in the project construction.This is my next intended project, another cushion, this time from Deborah Kemball’s mouthwatering book, “Beautiful Botanicals”. www.deborahkemball.com
I like to gather all the items I am considering using for a future project and store them together in a box, so that everything is together and ready when I decide to make a start. This way I don’t have to launch a major search for items that I know I put “somewhere safe”. It also has the advantage that I have a place to add ideas related to the project as they occur…. you will understand how creative thinking can occur anytime and any place! I write thoughts down and pop them in the box.
Organising my PPP is itself a work in progress.
Finally, my PPP provides a patchwork “fix” if I don’t have the time or energy to actually sew. It’s great therapy!!
