    I wished I lived closer. I love to organize things. I would have a blast organizing your room for you. Put some music on and dig in. I like to clear out one portion of the room, straighten that portion and move to the next section. I have a couple of ideas of very inexpensive organizational tools that I will post for you. As you do each section, stand back and admire what you have done and how great it feels to be organized.

    Here is one link: http://www.amazon.com/Spectrum-77170.../dp/B001I07XU6

    These are shelf dividers and they might work for your shelves. If you google shelf dividers, you will find a plethora of options.

    Glad the 15 minutes is working for you LovingIz!!! .... I think I saw some woodgrain fabric there that you might use in your PC. Bet the horses galloped away first! If you haven't yet, start a bin with PC prospects, to save having to look for them later!

    Remember ...
    Inch by Inch ... it's a cinch
    And Yard by Yard ... it's hard!!

    Just do those 15 minute inches and you'll see your progress sooner, than you think possible!

    Thank you so much for the ideas of the shelf dividers. Any further organization tips are greatly appreciated!

    That woodgrain you saw is actually a part of a planned fishing quilt lol The fabrics for my PC is contained in 4 yes 4 totes. I have been collecting horse/western fabric for a very long time and they have always gone together...at least I am a smidge organized...right?

    So here are some pictures of the rooms I use for my sewing space. Can you see how badly I need to get it organized? Perhaps I need to convince hubby to build me some sort of storage solution or something...

    Please ignore the dust on the old sewing machines. Hubby decided to use his saw not too far from them and I did not get them dusted down before I took the pictures Now I have to yell at hubby...sigh LOL

    You've got the part that's most important to you organized already! Keep an eye as you do the folding/sorting ... you'll find lots more potentials for the PC that you hadn't thought about. I know I have ... and then someone posts another block done, and I say, oh never thought of that. I have some of it hiding in my stash ... and then go digging! (like you, I do know where my cows are though!)

    Good luck and keep at it! Looks like you have a nice place to sew in and lots of potential to make it an efficient studio for yourself!

    If you are ever in Bay Area look me up! I need a quilter who doesn't know me well (so not as embarrassed!) to help organize my space and fabric! LOL! Bet lots of quilters in your area will be contacting you for help!
