    this year! My wonderful DH bought me a new storage cabinet with bins for my quilt room. And he updated my analog 15 yr old TV to a sleek new model! So I spent yesterday early afternoon moving/cleaning out the old shelves and we spent yesterday late afternoon assembling the things (not too bad) and setting up the new TV. So I spent this morning moving everything back in to my quilt room and sorting through stuff again!

    Now it's done and I really love it! I still have a couple of empty bins and still need to label the bins when I decide that the location works for me. BTW, I discovered several more UFOs. EGADS!! Some will be completed soon, others will wait a while. One UFO I don't recognize -- I can't figure out what quilt I was making blocks for, but the cutting is done! And six 9" blocks are completed! LOL

    These were my two shelf units BEFORE

    The best part is I don't have to get up and down off the floor to peruse my quilt books and magazines!

    What a great set of storage bins. Doesn't it feel good to
    get your things organized in the new places?
