    You go girl! I am off to my sewing room to go through every minute thing to pack up-moving at the end of the month, after having lived in the house for 7 years, there's lots of stuff in my built in drawers. All my fabric is boxed and ready to move. Threw out a lot of old patterns, going through lace,etc.

    I know how you feel, my hubs and I just spent the day in the basement getting rid of all my kids stuff, they are all gone but forgot to take their stuff with. My one son is in college so his stuff has to stay a while longer, but he took all my sewing stuff and moved out of his way, now I'm showing him who is boss. But we made great progress.

    I don't seem to make scraps. But I think if I did I would roll them and put them in shoe boxes tied with elastic

    Seeing your room from the beginning makes me know I am not alone and it encourages me to begin working on my organization!! Thanks

    Deb, you are an inspiration to us all. I know that if you can do it with all your challenges, I can too. Thanks for your wonderful spirit and sense of joy in all you do, whether sharing your stash & scraps or in organizing your sewing room. Sure wish I lived closer. Just went through 2 boxes of scraps for my kitty quilts. I adopted out 8 kitties over the last 10 days!! Back to the sewing machine for me. I need to get in my sewing room too and get it done before the kittens start coming in April, lol. I'll keep coming to you for inspiration, OK. Many blessings.

The hallway still has quite a bit in it but I am still working and emptying one box/bag at a time. I cringe when I find more fabric. So sad.
    I know how you feel Debbie,
    I have been working on emptying out my finished shed that is filled with my teaching supplies I spent years collecting. I no longer teach and so I have set my shed up like a mini store and just went through another 9 boxes today of books and stuff. I am making major progress so I can set up my shed as my woodcarving studio and personal space. I have also decided to find an old TV free off of CL and have saved tons of my favorite movies on Tape to watch as I work out there. I have 2 nice stools, a little heater and am trying to find a good hutch top to sit on my maple workbench to hold the carving supplies and carving blanks. I just love organization.

    You are making great progress! Just don't over do it so that you hurt yourself. Take breaks once in a while just to admire your progress and rest a bit. You don't have to finish it on a deadline. Your stash isn't going anywhere and will wait to be organized again as you feel better.

    Debbie, I keep reading your threads and watching your progress and reading how you got to this point. Suddenly it hit me. You are not a hoarder, never have been. You are just a very busy and multi-talented person with a lot of irons in your fire with not enough time in a day to do all you want to do. You just got disorganized when you started clearing out and having sales and it got away from you. Most hoarders don't have all the drive and ambition to do the things that you do. They just collect. You're reorganizing now. That's your story and I'm sticking to it !!! :thumbup:

    Awwwwwwwwww Burnsk, you are so sweet to understand. I was so embarassed to post this but then again, I have seen so many others come out of the "sewing room" so to speak and it's been fun seeing how we all keep our wonderful getaways for quilting. And believe it or not, I can find things when I want them. I love your story and I will stick to it too. ♥♥
