365 / 191 - I thought up a snappy title, but then I forgot it

Bit sleepy today! Yesterday I got annoyed at how long it was taking me to find the colours I wanted in my giant felt pile, and at how it kept toppling over. So, I divided it into two more manageable piles: one an "all colours" heap with one piece of every type and colour of felt I currently own - rather a lot! - and the other a "spare" stash of extra sheets. The second pile is going to get much larger over the next few months as I'm busy seeking out wholesale suppliers and building up reserves of useful colours which in my mind have names like "squirrel red", "pansy purple" and "bluetit blue".

I then cleared out a shelf in my crafty cupboard to make room for it all:
I have no idea what I'm going to do with all the things which have been cleared out of that cupboard, or what I will do when I buy yet more felt! A bit of destashing may be called for I think...

In other news: my felt fancy pincushions were featured on cuteable the other day, I was interviewed on the handmadewithamour blog, some of my tea and cake brooches were picked as illustrations for a guide to "how to throw and amzing tea party" and I did some more vintage shopping:
- seriously retro shelf lining paper (originally 35p in Woolworths according to the price label) and a duvet cover that is a veritable explosion of yellow flowers (great for adding some sunshine to the dark and dingy spare room). All for the grand total of £4.50. Fabulous.

I have shopping envy - that lining paper is wonderful and that fabric is yummy!

Congratulations on getting so far with Crafting365! I'm just beginning.
Great organization. I redid my workshop the other day, too. My felt box could use some ingenuity like yours, though, too.

I wish I had space to make my craft supplies to look that organized!
