    DH has decided it is time for me to clean my sewing room...so, he has been adding shelves.

    I now have to put the stuff in the right places, which will take some time!

    These are my beginning pictures so you can share the journey with me.

    Know what you are facing. Have spent the past few days bonding with my fabric and reorganizing my shelves. I have 3 tubs of scraps - why is it we can't part with even the smallest piece of fabric. It is driving me nuts. Going to put in all in one tub hopefully and save sorting for a rainy day. Must get organized and back to my quilting. Just had black and white tile put in my room and it is soooo nice.

    I can take some of that fabric off your hands for you. That way you won't have to deal with so much. Because, Lord knows, I need more fabric like I need a hole in my head.

    Can't wait to see it when you are finished.

    Funny how that fabric gets away from you, huh! I just redid my small sewing area, so I would know where everything is at, and guess what? I'm having a heck of a time finding anything. Haha!

    Purplemem, you have no idea what an encourgment you were to me during the Boomerang swap! You introduced me to the Coroplast boards and that got me started! I sorted and then color sorted the fabric and started wrapping. I have such a beautiful little fabric display in my quilting room now - Thanks to you! It is such a wonderful feeling to look at my quilting space and really like it.

    I know you can do it! I've seen it. Clear the surfaces and straighten those shelves (only to get more fabric on them!) and take one day at a time, a couple hours a day and work at it slowly. Before you know it you will have a beautiful quilting room again! YOU GO GIRL!

    I can't wait to see the after pix.

    Uhhh... Where is your sewing machine?? I wish I was there to help you. I love to organize.

    The funny thing is, once you have a place for certain things and put them back there when you are finished, it stay's that way... pretty much anyway.

    You will love having a nice room to sew in and knowing where everything is.

    Have fun with it purplemem.
