    Ok since I've been on this board I have sooooo much unorganized fabric I thought I share and pledge to clean it up. My job first was my ruler wall. Next is the Diamond desk. I'll post pictures to update you on my progress.

    4ft by 8 ft peg board largest ruler is 24 by 24 in in the far right corner

    Diamond desk is crippled and unuseable.

    Call me crazy but I would love to clean up the ruler wall and Diamond desk. My sewing area gets super messy when I'm working on a project. One of my favorite things to do is giving my room a good cleaning when I'm done with the quilt. Have fun. I look forward to the progress pics!

    I love it, I have a white peg board that my husband put up and Lowes cut the size you have into three even pieces so that they would not be so high up I couldn't reach. This board has me organizing as well. Looking good.

    Love the ruler wall! Sadly, my sewing room looks more like the second picture. On the top left of your ruler wall, you have a 9* circle wedge ruler (lol - can't make the degree symbol show up here). I was just given one of those. Have you used it and if so, do you have any pictures of what you made?
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Nancy did yours have the card board on it has a web address and some patterns to try. No I have by cutting table a mess too. So I only do as mush as I can manage in this chaos. My plan is to do one in December.

    Hi

    No, there's no web address. This is obviously an older one as in the bottom corner it has a "Special Offer" and an address to send a SASE envelope to for additional design ideas. Could you give me the website yours has?

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    As you can see I have wall for rulers done but the tread and hoop wall isn't done yet. Have the peg board but need the 1 by 2 to hang it.

    The reason I choose to do the ruler wall first is the rulers fragile and I broke one walking through the mess. I thought if I got them out of the way maybe I wouldn't break any more. :thumbup:

    I am a sick woman. Why did this get so bad.

    An over view of the whole room kind of. You can see the problem in part there are 3 more rooms in just as bad shape.

    I love my peg board but I made it too small. Love yours.

    Little by little, step by step. Pick a corner and make it look good, then pick another. The satisfaction of seeing these small improvements will keep you going! I have a room that looked very much like that, I have been working on it for a couple of months. I can now get in there to use stuff, just have to figure out what to do with this one annoying little detail. WORK. My full time job just gets in the way!! LOL
