    You're making progress and that is a good thing. :-) Don't overdo and get too sore. Slow and steady wins the race.

    Wow, this IS a lot of fabric! So are you putting yourself on 'no buy' this year to shop from your own stash?

    Great job ... it is a lot of work straightening up our sewing 'studios'

    What in the world is a "no buy" That is not computing. ROFL. I am planning to make project Kits up with fabrics and put them with a pattern. That way I don't sell what I need. And I am planning on about 75% of it finding new homes as I go. I am not advertising a sale because I do charity work and send friends things and trade too. Just saying, there is no way I can use it all in my lifetime so am trying to spread the fabric. LOL.

    with new husband moved in, so the room has turned into one of the many drop off spaces.
    Going to a guild meeting tonight, wouldn't it be great if they offered such services...

    Right? I went shopping today....no fabric. I bought two oak shelve units to start on one side of the room, then when those are replaced, going to buy more units. I made sure at Lowe's they had plenty of that oak and I can add. Eventually, the four walls will have matching units. I hate all the different shelves. These shelves and Box unit have about 6 different pieces to buy that can stack or open or store. etc. Might ahve a picture of the set I want here shortly.

    You are doing a great job Deb, Know how hard it is. My sewing room not so bad, but my car sits out in the weather while my carport is full of cartons of "stuff" from my downsizing house move - 3yrs ago. My kids just look at it and sigh. Know I have to go through it but...... sewings much more fun.
    Having a fun friend to help makes it better, keep well and good luck with the home run..

    Holy Smokes! You girls can do some serious straightening in an amazing amount of time! It took me three months to get the new sewing room set up by myself. Way to go joanieu and debbie!
    I am so happy that your sewing space is getting a make over. There is nothing like having a nice organized space to sew in. And I don't buy the same fabric and patterns over and over.... LOL!

    I am so sad you are having pain issues deb. Yikes that arm really looks swollen. Bless your heart.

    I think you're still a hoarder, just an addition of the word 'organized' is needed
    (sorry, once you're in the "I'm a Hoarder" club, we need a lot of proof to let you leave us)

    It is like the mob, once you are in there is no easy way out. Maybe if you gave it all away. Like that may happen.

    It's still coming along.
    RugosaB - so funny. I like clubs so will stay with ya'll. Once a hoarder, always a hoarder then. Just didn't want Peter at my house. LOL. Just getting it cleaned up now, soon I am organizing and labeling so I can find it. LOL.
    Of course, it looks like I may have more than two of each piece. LOL

    This is a unit put together. More you can buy to add. And of course Bella has to check it out.
