    Instead of starting a new topic, I dug this one up.

    I got the new issue of Quilt Magazine and these new ruler organizers were recommended. The Ultimate that is two sided is now on my wish list. This man has figured out how to get the most storage of rulers in one spot! Not only can you store the rulers on front and back, there is a space in the middle to hold bigger square rulers and small cutting mats!

    welcome to get ideas.
    my design boards is made of insulation board covered w/ batting total cost probably $25.The shelves in my closet I bought at Walmart they are stainless steel and cost around $20 each. In the hardware dept made for kitchens but it worked for me.

    OK, all this organizing talk makes me want to leave work (as you can tell, I'm really busy today!!) and go start getting things in order in my sewing room. When the last kid left, The dog and I moved the tv and couch to the actual living room and the downstairs familyroom was repainted a gorgeous cottage blue and I did get some white storage cabinets, the tall kind with shelves and doors (love the dog, but she sheds something awful). I have an old maybe antique narrow cabinet that my late mother painted and stenciled strawberries on (definately '70"s, definately Mom, wouldn't change it for the world!!). She used it in her sewing room too!! I have one of those white plastic banquet tables from Sam's, and my sewing machine cabinet, and a bookshelf.Oh and the computer desk. Some stuff has actually made it into the cabinets!!! I'm sure I have duplicates of some stuff I can't find. Other stuff came up and I have never gotten back to the organizing. :roll: :roll:

    Here's a question...Do you guys prefer carpeting or hard flooring?? I'm on a cement floor down there (I live in a split level). The old carpet needs to come up but i'm not sure if I should replace it with more carpet or laminate?? Of course there would be a rug under my feet at the machine and ironing board, etc., auntie arthritis insists!! And a comfy padded bed for my assistant!! But is it easier to sweep or vac?? I'm leaning toward laminate, but is there something about the carpeting that would make it better?

    Anyways, Kudos to those of you that are organized by nature, and to the rest of you..I feel your pain :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Carpeting is going to be warmer for you in the cold Ohio winter, and carpet all over is going to be easier on your feet and knees. But a smooth tile or laminate floor and a Swiffer are so much cleaner, especially with a shedding dog.

    If you have heat, and good padded slippers for winter, go with the laminate (or tile) flooring.

    That's my opinion, anyway.

    Definitely hard floors - easier to sweep up the pins and scraps and threads.

    I think it will be laminate..OMG, I should have done it before I moved all my stuff in there!! Oh well, didn't have the funds then (don't quite have them now!!).

    I think the old kind of shower curtain rings, the metal ones keyhole shape, would work great to hang rulers on if you have a rod up. They're pretty cheap. Or even a bent up piece of coat hanger would be heavy enough to hold them, and they're really cheap!! get out your pliers :wink: :wink:

    Maybe not so organized but I had to share this picture of my 3 year old grandaughter. I have this plastic bin beside my cutting table that small scraps go in to. She was "helping" me sew. She has a love of fabric.
