    I need more room for fabric. This is getting real tight now. The shelves I always thought I could squeeze one more piece of fabric into ... I can't. Is this enough? I am reorganizing my closet now Hoping to cram more in.
    This is ridiculous.

    a shelf of sheets, some other stuff can go somewhere else...

    And, if I remove the makeshift repurposed sideways drawers on top with another shelf from Ikea!

    It's beautifully organized and not out of control. There's bigger and messier, just search the board! Sell or donate what no longer appeals to you, and start sewing up the rest!

    This is just a thought...BUT....if you make a few quilts it will make room for more fabric!! lol Also give you time to save a little money for the increase in price of fabric. :)

    Yes, Margie, I agree. I did hit a nice sale wall today that was 50% off. So at $4-5/yard I was getting some of the nicest fabrics and favorite designers that appeal to me. It was a nice amount for the prices I paid.

    It's not called ridiculous it's called being proactive and planning for the future. :wink: By the way, I am green with envy.:mrgreen:
