    Sorry for your loss, I have small containers for the smaller items and larger containers for the larger items. Looks like you have lots of storage containers and drawers, I would start there and arrange where you can put them and start filling them up.

    My mom passed away in January 2 years ago, You are fortunate for spending time with her. I also received my love of fabrics from my mom. Something that no one has thought of for storage and I use all the time are suitcases. Not the old, old ones but the ones with wheels and telescoping handles. Make a lugeage tag to say what is in it and they are much easier to move around. I can no longer lift or move those heavy bins, the shoe boxes are great, and my go cutter cuts down those piles of unmanagable scrapes so I am ready to start many new scrap quilts!

    Sorry about your Mom but enjoy the things she left behind. My husbands aunt Bea who was like a mother to me passed away and left me tons of yarn and I still haven't finished with it all. It's hard to organize it seems like you no sooner get it all fixed and you have to look for something. My son had come to stay with us when he first came to Fl. and we still have some of his things in the house and the garage and I can't seem to get organized. I always make the holiday things and a lot of things for the kids. to much to do and not enough time.

    Here's how I organized mine. I just recently put in these shelves in the closet and did away with the wooden bookcase---didn't have enough room to store it all in the same place.

    This is where I store the cotton fabric. I don't use a lot of other fabrics, so they are stored in large containers underneath my cutting table.
