I have a whole cupboard setup this way so far and some in totes that I need to get another cabinet that opens with 2 large doors. I want to put them on casters so that I can move them if necessary. Will do that this summer when DD # 4 is home on vacation. She is the only one who helps and doesn't tell me I should start getting rid of my stash, so they don't have too. I don't plan on dying soon and hope to be around after I retire in a couple of years. Would retire now and take disability, but I need the health ins benefits I get from work.
    I've done the same and it works for me, too. I can now see what I have.

    I have done 5 yds easily - decided that my bigger pieces would be used mostly for backs so I have those just folded.

    We are measuring ours as we wrap - I punched a hole near the corner and got merchandise tags (I think that is what they are called little squares with string through them) and put the yardage on it in pencil so we can change it as we use.

    I have started wrapping my fabric onto the boards. I have 10 18 gallon tubs stuffed full. My husband & oldest son are making me bookcases for my fabric. Big job but am excited to be able to actually see my fabric.
    I buy my boards from M.I. Late who is a member of this quilting forum. Great service and nice looking boards.

    What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

    My DH has torn the old porch off the house now and is in the process of cleaning up the mess he made. I am hoping that I can get a cement foundation poured here in the near future and then we can start building my addition. DH says that 12 X 26 should be big enough for me. I have a nice new roll of carpet that I bought for the house--not used that will go for 22 ft. Can get a small piece of lino for the entry door from the outside if needed. I have a door and we have a Menards and Lowes in Minot where we can get the door/jamb that I want and the two windows. Have plenty of shop lights (flourescent kind) to hang in the ceiling.
    Comic boards are what comics are packed in. You can go to Joanns and get the cardboard they throw away and cut your own. They are FREE.
