    This is what Joanieu and I got done today. SHe took pictures too and when I wasn't looking so she will probably post some later. These are some I took. A little dark because the sun was shining in the other side where I took pictures. There is actually a room in there now.

    Left side of the room.

    Looking in the room now. And we still aren't done. Notice there is a floor there now. None of my sewing furniture is in there until I get the walls and shelves done.

    Right side of the room behind door - The boxes to her right are Doll making nad other craft items. I am emptying them into a box and out they go. So that frees up that wall. My peg board behind her used to be full of supplies. Iknow i can fill it up again. We found treaures today.

    Considering last night I hurt so bad I could scream and came close to going to ER. But I had help today and could not refuse it. LOL. We are both going to take a long hot bath and I sent a bottle of wine home with JoanieU. YOu should have seen her smile. :thumbup:

    Back right side - still boxes to empty out.

    Thanks. I thouht hoarders kept things in boxes and bags. I emptied plenty of them today and hubby was taking out boxes every 30 minutes. Now I am a fabricaholic. LOL. That sneaky Joanieu kept taking pictures and I have no idea what I am doing. I saw the flashes though. ROFL. 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.

    Wow! Deb, you and Joanieu have certainly worked hard. Your hard work is certainly shown in your pictures. Inch by inch, section by section you're getting your sewing room in order.

    Thank you for sharing your situation and progress. I'm sure it will inspire others to organize their space. What a dear friend you have.

    Have a Great Quilty Day!

    ROFL still lots of inches to go but I emptied 5 more boxes after she left. Then again, I had to make a path in the hallway so I could get to my bedroom. LOL. SO funny. We laughed and had fun. I even fed her LIttle Deb's chocolate swirls so she would have energy. Thanks JOanieu. Now I am getting off her to go soak in a wonderful tub of hot water with the lavendar french oils and powders that Dreamer2009 sent me when I started this project. She knew I was going to need it. Thanks for all the encouragement in the last few weeks. If you are just joining me, someone in the main section is the before pictures. :(

    I see great progress - but don't over do. You must feel wonderful in spite of pain & deserve a relaxing bath.

    Good job. There is light at the end of the tunnel!!! You deserve a hot soak, some chocolate, and maybe dinner out. Or better yet, in my opinion, carry out that someone else picks up!!! Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the finished room.
