I'm not as organized as you are but i do use project boxes for all my UFO's and to hold fabric, pattern,special ruler and tools I need for a new project. I use clear project boxes that are big square with different dept. I get them at Hobby Lobby. I think they are Options brand. Pretty color snap closures. They fit perfectly on my book shelves.

Good plan. I can see where that would be helpful. If you get tired of a certain project, it's easy to put it aside and pull it out when in the mood and it doesn't clutter up your sewing space when not being worked on. I am also one of those that finishes a project before starting another. Whatever works.

I'm lucky enough to have a shelf unit along the long hallway down in my basement where my sewing room is located. It was built for my large collection of DVD/Bluray movies but I cleared off the top shelf and half of the next one below to keep my future projects. This way I can put a bolt on the shelf if needed. Right now I have 8 future projects sitting up there. If I find a pattern I think I might want to try for one of the project I lay it on that pile, same goes for the fabric I think might work with it. As to the started projects I found some connecting plastic containers at Walmart that are large enough to hold all my pieces of fabrics, the pattern, etc and I can just connect them on top of each other and then pullout the one I want to work on for that particular day. It keeps them from getting dusty and keeps my curious kitten out of them too. Nothing seems to be sacred to her at this stage of her young life.

I love being able to know where to look for each type of fabric or tool I need. I also have a wooden cabinetry piece that has a door with five shelves that I keep my separated patterns in. Also two bookshelves for my quilting books.
It all keeps me organized and sane. I could never be happy in a room where the clutter makes me uncomfortable.
The one habit I need to employ is to put away as I work. I tend to stack fabrics on my step stool until it is a foot high.
Just wanted to pop in & say Hi There Red, Hope life is good for you,,,,,for some reason I don't get to this message board very often .Seeing your name was like seeing a old friend. I think I have gotten married since we last spoke, last name used to be Fox, Anyway I have my closet set up pretty much like you described, Just recently started with the project boxs. My issues is UFO's, that pile never seems to go away, I have a tote box that sits under my cutting table with the UFO's and I have slowly been working on them.
