    You are right. It's so true. I've seen a lot of sewing rooms on QB that the owners say are a terrible mess, but the work they put out is amazing. I only hope that I can do as well in my newly organized room as all the others do in theirs... tidy or not.

    In the process of moving books, and magazines now. They are residing in totes on the floor.
    I used spacebags a few years ago to store batting but they didn't seem to hold their vacuum and expanded horribly after a few weeks! I may try some new ones, maybe they are better now. How old are yours?
    I have some of my batting in space bags. My space bags were at least two yrs. old. and no problems yet! I get out what batting I need, suck out the air and they've stayed flat so far.

    I figured it would be a nice way to store them, as well as get rid of the box that the space bags came in - more room elsewhere in my house.
    The books are put away, I have more carpet showing now - been working on it. Done for the night now.

    It's funny. I spent time today just organizing my thread! I picked up spools in three different rooms, then pulled out the thread drawers and put everything in order. I wonder how long that will last....NOT.

    My hubby is making a nice large room for me, but I still don't think I will ever be organized. Not in the genes.
