    i'm slowly getting things in order in my little 'quilting closet'. still missing a few labels, but the newest addition is the shoe storage for my fat quarters. i think it's going to work out ok (i think i saw the idea here on the board?). a little 'front heavy' but as i add to my stash, i'll push some to the back. still moving around colors, though. the third picture is my 'projects waiting to be started' collection (not including purchased patterns and the two that are on the dining room table to be started today. yuck, i hate pre-washing fabric)

    Nice job, Martha (Stewart)! LOL! It looks very organized and neat. You will have no trouble finding the perfect fabric for your next project.

    yes, that was a $7 jobbie at the local discount store. it's 6" wide and 10" deep (i think). i think they are a little cheaper at IKEA, but they're not clear and that's an hour drive for me.

    Oh that's not sad!! That's just your left brain coming through. :D

    I get as much joy out of playing with the organization part as I do the sewing together part. Sort of like giving your right brain a rest before you start the next project. My daughter had a grand time organizing her yarn the other day. :wink:

    I am in awe!!! I have so much stuff--not "junk"--as it has been called, that I can't sew in the room any more. I sew (and mess up) the living room. I really don't like my disorganization but the idea of straightening up is overwhelming!! Congrats you did a great job. I think you inspired me a little!! Virginia

    I recently took over a bedroom and made it a quilting room. I built a shelf in the closet. added 3 rolling plastic carts and took the bifold door off and added a curtain. Also had the lightswitch moved. Now when I go wild buying fabric, I can put it in the drawer or bin with similar colored material, or theme, or type of material. I have a flannel bin ( includes baby flannel), an outdoor bin, a landscape bin, finished quilt top bin, a denim bin, and daughter-in-law bins. (We share the room and I didn't want to mix her projects with mine). I used an office supply paper organizer for books and patterns. I have 2 ringbinders with sheetprotecters to organize the patterns I print off the internet. Now all I have to do is quit working so I can spend all my time in my quilt den.

    That is just too funny!
    I think if I had seen them, not knowing what they were, I'd cry that they died or somthing.

    When I was a kid, we lived in the country. My friends all thought it was hysterical that my dad would put the goats in the yard when the grass got too tall. Quite often, the little ones would come right in the house with my brother and me. We thought it was funny, Mom not so much :) !

    My area is small too, but I am in a sun porch with all windows, so hardly any storage. But at least I have a place to sew now. Can at least see the ocean a little! Your room closet is wonderful.
