    2nd Update to Reorganizing my Sewing and Quilting Supplies

    Well, I am still working. I really thought I would be finished by now. Ha Ha. I have decided I am a hoarder and didn't know how much I had until I started trying to get it all into one small room (9 1/2 x 9 1/2'). Below you will see two photos, top half of one wall, and bottom half of same wall. See that laundry cart that is in pieces? See that step stool? Yep, you're right. I fell off the stool onto the laundry cart that I was sorting scraps into as I was putting fabric on shelves. Not hurt, just a small cut on on one hand. As you can see I have quite a mess, all of this was in the closet of this room. HINT: before you start, empty the closet! I really have accomplished a lot, utility room is empty of fabrics, I have moved my clothes from one closet to another - after removing fabric. Have moved my daughters clothing from sewing room closet to her room. I'm getting closer. Maybe next week I can show you the finished product.

    You are definitely making progress. Glad you weren't seriously hurt when you fell. Sounds like something I would have done.

    I can't imagine how wonderful it would be to have that much fabric! You have organized it beautifully. Isn't it amazing how much work all this takes. One thing always leads to another.

    And I thought I had a lot of fabric !!! LOL. I'm just jeajous. My DGD moved out into her own apartment and so now we have her room as her sewing room (I live with my daughter and her hubby). So far we have repainted, shampooed the carpet and moved all the sewing stuff in there but nothing is organized. Once we get it "liveable" I will post a picture. Oh and my DD found a used Kangaroo Kabinet and it's just like brand new. I am soooo excited. It's the big one the "Aussie". Can't wait to set the insert for my Viking so I can get to sewing again....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Thanks everyone. I was lucky when I fell, will be more careful in future. As for the organization, yes, I have accomplished a lot so far, but have quite a ways to go. Just can't decide what to do with all the decorator fabrics I have. I really don't have room for it in my new room and my goal was to get everything in one area. Have to decide this week. But it is good to have all my quilting fabrics organized so that I can see what I have. I have a few kits that I have put together for myself and I intend to make more and then, hopefully, go shopping in my own home when I need a new project. I really enjoy seeing everyone elses organizational projects. Happy Quilting and happy Mother's Day. I am off to Red Lobster with all my kids and grandkids.

    Wow that's looking really good. I'm so glad your fall only resulted in a small cut, could have been so much worse.

    Your doing a great job, but please be careful. Friends step mother was playing tennis Fri. fell and shattere her wrist, will never be right again from looks of it. Three years ago I fell and got a sprial fracture of right humorous, what a mess and I healed well too. I though I had a lot of material. Will have to show this to my husband, it will make him feel alittle better.
