    OK, last month I posted "My Sisters Rock!!! (http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/4185.page if you want to start there)
    Now for the pictures. We didn't think to take "Before" pics, but here's all the cardboard & trash bags!


    23 trash bags, the trash cans are full, plus the cardboard!

    Gosh, I just remembered about all the "Goodwill" stuff on my patio...oh well, maybe I can add that in tomorrow! :roll:

    OK, so here's "the Fabric Shop". The cabinets are from IKEA, called "Billy" in beech finish. They're 72" tall & about 32" wide. The stack of plastic bins in the corner have scraps & fleece & miscellaneous stuff. On the window wall there are 2 white hampers about 30" wide, that have batting & pillow forms in them. 2 cabinets are on one wall, the other one is on the wall across the room, with a bookcase & a small dresser on each side. The closet is full of Christmas & other miscellany.

    And to think, when they started, you could only take about 2-1/2 steps into the room! I don't think I'll ever be able to thank them enough!!!


    hmmmmm, do you think I have enough blue? The bottom shelf (that doesn't show) is all old Levi's! lol

    Oh those are nice cupboards. I like the glass fronts so you can see in them.......you do seem to like blue, it is in every cupboard. I wish I had sisters, wow yours are the best. Now make them each a new quilt......maybe a blue one. That looks great lucky, lucky, lucky :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Sue,
    You are being very motivating sharing these pictures. I've been looking at the ikea stuff on line dreaming. I'll have to order it shipped in. Sigh! Love your stash! Yummy! Turquoise envy!

    Fabric shop is right! Wow, Sue! I want to come over and play. Those IKEA cabinets are the bomb! Your walls look like works of art! Have a good time sewing in your new studio.
