Ok, so I saw how alaskasunshine organized her beautiful stash, and I think she made a lot of us feel uber-guilty about our wrecks ~ so I cannot afford all the boards right now, so I am making daily trips to my local store at the end of the day... they recycle the bolts anyway, so I am cutting them down with an Xacto to size... great stiff cardboard! :)
After numerous "hide it!" episodes when family came over during the holidays, my room was totally out of control... I couldn't stand it! Everything would get quickly tossed in and the french doors shut. Well, its got to be organized for me to work! :shock:
I am way too embarrassed to show the whole room and how totally bad of a wreck it was... but here is a quick idea. It was BAD... but I am working on the reorganization, and I am getting soo excited! It's very liberating!
We had a LQS close about 3 years ago, and they had a set of 6 custom-built bolt shelves... well, I bought those along with yards and yards of fabrics... so I have two of them in my solarium, and they are working perfectly! After the initial cleaning, I may have room to bring 2 more of the shelving units up, I just cannot quite get to the far side of the room yet...
So here's my progress so far...
some of the original train wreck... even my Grace frame had to be hidden from guests coming over... I am so embarrassed it got that bad!
ahhh... how liberating to be organized!
oh, I forgot I had about 1/2 of these fabrics... enough excitement to start planning 20 more quilts YIKES
yum, its such a pretty rainbow forming :)
all my YARNS are now organized (up top in boxes) and protected from dustbunnies!
I keeps shifting as I get "another shelf done"... I have wrapped over 500 yards already, and probably have at least another 1500 yards to go... still have numerous stacks and sterilite under-the-bed bins that aren't even touched yet... oh, it will bo soooo great when done! Thanks alaskasunshine for encouraging us!!!
