    OK, 1:15pm update on disaster.....most fabrics sorted and put back in cabinets, UFO's and projects purchased, but not made are in bags and hanging where I can see them. Yet to go, flannels need to be folded better and put in cabinet, small colored fabs need to be sorted into correct shoe boxes, run the sweeper, then collapse. Maybe post a picture or two......if ANYONE sees me going in the direction of a fabric store, call the police.

    Stop do not get your car keys to go to fabric stores!

    as you can shop at your own house for quilting supplies, much easier and will save on gas and $$$$$, have fun

    After GagaSmith and I went to our LQS 20% off sale last Saturday, I spend the next 5 hours sorting and reorganizing my own sewing area. It was a chore, but as mentioned, it was well worth it. I have to wash the latest order from Connecting Threads, #1Quiltmaker and the stack I found in the 'stash'. I even found my missing seam ripper and an elusive ruler.

    I love it too, former room of my daughter, you can see her picture on the wall. The deal was, I can turn her room into a sewing room if she can use it when she visits. Win-Win!

    I did a similar thing a few weeks ago when I moved into this new room that my daughter vacated when she left home for college. Then I wasn't happy with the layout I had chosen so I did it all over again last night, lol! My space is about 11x16 and is the guest room, office and sewing room all in one. I like the new layout and I'm sure you are enjoying your newly reorganized space as much as I am. Your space looks fantastic!!

    Looks wonderful! What a fun place to play with fabric and sew some treasures.
    Happy dance for you! All cleaned up and ready to play again!

    Your room looks great. You must have worked like a dog to get it all out of the room and sorted then put back. Good job.

    Love your sewing room. Mine needs to be cleaned too. Seems like when I do get it cleaned up, it just gets messed up again. It's just a "viscious" circle. I do always try to clean it after a project is finished. My room is not nearly as spacious as yours.
