    It took some time to get it this way. I had to be honest about what things I really didn't need and to let them go. Now I know what I have and where it is when I need it. We'll have to visit at Guild in a few weeks.

    Do you have a room you use just for sewing?

    Very nice! What a great looking sewing table, too!

    May I ask what brand of floor lamp that is near your sewing table. Looks nice, and I'm in the market for one.

    Thanks,

    Karla

    Hope you don't have to give up much for it. My DH prefers that I have a room for my things so he doesn't see them all over the house. We work it out!

    Great space! I really like that the shelves in the closet are adjustable and your table is fabulous.

    We kept repeating (verbally) what we put in each tote or spot for Debbie. We knew it would be confusing at first. There was the cross stitch and the crocheting and the memories boxes and PL and the scraps and the pre-cuts and the yardage and projects already started and "next" projects. I think she has it all in her memory now!

    Almost finished! I have so many projects planned and I can't decide which one to start first. I need to finish the gold quilt first. But I have the most delightful additions to my stash and patterns.

    Thanks for showing off your closet - I have one to create and am looking for ideas. Someone mentioned adjustable shelving - seeing it gives me ideas.
    What brand & do you remember where you got the storage bins that have orange labels? Which type do you like best?

    thanks.

    The orange labels are sticky post-it-notes that I used to identify what is in the totes! I use several different kinds of bins. I get them on sale at Michaels and JoAnns. I use coupons to get the best price. I use the 3 inch thick ones for projects and the deeper ones for companion prints stash. One is "girls", one is "boys", etc.
