    Making headway in organization....

    Well ... somewhat!!! Last weekend I emptied out my very over loaded room and am slowly putting things back. I re-arranged the layout of the sewing desk, cutting table and ironing area. The room is very small and I do different crafts, so it's difficult to get everything in there! I'm sure you can relate!! I also use one computer for scanning and that takes up one corner of the room. I love my sewing desk...found it at a second hand store in town. It weighs a ton and has lots of storage area. Really love the end storage! I feel that I can now continue on projects! (I haven't shown you my dining room table!!! That's were all the "stuff" that hasn't made it back into the room is right now!) One of my projects is to make a new ironing board cover! Mine has seen better days. I wish the best to all who are getting the "bug" to organize! It's an on going project. Once you think you have it ... bamb! You have more stash and don't know where to put it! Enjoy your space ... I know that I'm very happy when I'm in mine!

    Great pics. Very organized! I guess you knit or crochet as much as you quilt?? I was looking at your desk and machine. Seems high. Is that working for you? I have always had trouble getting something that puts the machine at just the right height, which is important to me, since my neck injury two years ago.

    Great job, and for a small room, you have gotten a lot of storage area in there. So nice to be organized and it looks like you did a wonderful job. Enjoy
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Dont you just love those wire shelf units, I just got 2 of them for a spare bedroom that I am cleaning out, organizing and painting then its going to end up being a sort of walk in closet for all the "stuff" . Those shelves are sturdy and great for bins....I have 3 more units on a rain check .....My husband told our neighbor if I didnt do something soon with that room I could a spot on the hoarder show .

    I worked in my closet this afternoon. Can't organize the room unless the closet is organized and purged (a little). Have begun a box and a bag for Goodwill. I had fabric and patterns together in boxes for specific future projects. The stack was getting higher and higher in the closet. I decided to fold the fabric and put it in with the stash. Put all of the patterns together in one place. If the project "makes the cut" then fine. If I use the fabric for something else, still fine. Now the room looks like a hurricane went through there. Why is it we've got to make such a mess when cleaning or organizing. Well, I do anyway! Thanks for the inspiration.
    One step at a time, always forward.
