    There happens to be a couch in the rec room directly next door to my sewing area. Sounds a like a good temporary home. I think one of those big craft tables would be perfect. I believe it's going on my christmas/anniversary list! Spent a lot of time on quiltville trying to figure out her method for storing stuff. I have one bin of excess half square triangles already made into squares and some HST not pieced into anything yet just left over from other projects. I have one bin of leftover squares but they are of various sizes. I think some of my smaller pieces I don't anticipate using again until I have enough for some scrappy quilts might just get cut down into some popular sizes she uses and then I can bin them according to size or light/darks. Still thinking that through.

    May be you can choose one or two patterns from Bonnie's website and aim your cutting at kitting them up.

    I am itching to reorganise my sewing room (more my storage and cutting room) but I am sewing flat out on a couple of Christmas presents so it will be my 1st job after that. I think I will start with giving the contents of my main scrap bin that I have gone through many times to a beginning scrap quilter I know.

    I don't dare store my mats under the couch for the simple reason that a dog would take it and chew it to pieces. I duct taped one to my Joann's cutting table on one of the drop down sides and I have a bigger one that I can put on the top of the table so I have extra space to cut if I want. Still trying to get my trailer set up, been to cold to go out to try to clean it. I am hoping the weather warms a little next week.

    Well, we don't have any dogs, just kids. I think that my boys may have thought my head was going to pop off and spin around the last time I caught them playing with my cutting mat. They were using it as a drag strip for their race cars. Thankfully, they've never touched it again. Now if I could just get the wonderful adult children and hubby to stay out of my sewing room, my poor tools might feel a bit safer.

    I did get the last box unpacked. I have some orphan strips that I didn't use in quilts, I had them left over. They don't really match eachother. Do you think I should rip the stitches out and just store the strippy pieces by color? What do you all think?

    I dont have alot of money so went with clear plastic bins and wire shelves from Target. 10 bins sorted by color and larger than a fat quarter. Some bins are for Christmas, backings, backgrounds etc. Fats I store in baskets from the Dollartree store. The wire shelves were $16 and not easy to put togather but work well.

    I use bankers clips to clip onto my rulers and then hang those on the 3M clear hooks. The hooks don't damage the walls and the bankers clip can stay right on the hook while I'm using the ruler so I know exactly where to put it back! I didn't buy the giant ones, bought the medium size bankers clips so they would grab the ruler better and not slip out. Before I had a 'wall' to hang it on I hung the bankers clips on a coat hanger in my hall (fabric) closet. Works well for me.
