    Ok since I've been on this board I have sooooo much unorganized fabric I thought I share and pledge to clean it up. My job first was my ruler wall. Next is the Diamond desk. I'll post pictures to update you on my progress.

    4ft by 8 ft peg board largest ruler is 24 by 24 in in the far right corner

    Call me crazy but I would love to clean up the ruler wall and Diamond desk. My sewing area gets super messy when I'm working on a project. One of my favorite things to do is giving my room a good cleaning when I'm done with the quilt. Have fun. I look forward to the progress pics!

    I love it, I have a white peg board that my husband put up and Lowes cut the size you have into three even pieces so that they would not be so high up I couldn't reach. This board has me organizing as well. Looking good.

    Love the ruler wall! Sadly, my sewing room looks more like the second picture. On the top left of your ruler wall, you have a 9* circle wedge ruler (lol - can't make the degree symbol show up here). I was just given one of those. Have you used it and if so, do you have any pictures of what you made?
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Hi

    No, there's no web address. This is obviously an older one as in the bottom corner it has a "Special Offer" and an address to send a SASE envelope to for additional design ideas. Could you give me the website yours has?

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    As you can see I have wall for rulers done but the tread and hoop wall isn't done yet. Have the peg board but need the 1 by 2 to hang it.

    The reason I choose to do the ruler wall first is the rulers fragile and I broke one walking through the mess. I thought if I got them out of the way maybe I wouldn't break any more. :thumbup:

    I am a sick woman. Why did this get so bad.

    An over view of the whole room kind of. You can see the problem in part there are 3 more rooms in just as bad shape.

    Little by little, step by step. Pick a corner and make it look good, then pick another. The satisfaction of seeing these small improvements will keep you going! I have a room that looked very much like that, I have been working on it for a couple of months. I can now get in there to use stuff, just have to figure out what to do with this one annoying little detail. WORK. My full time job just gets in the way!! LOL

    I would help you if I were close enough. Just take it one step at a time and before you know it it will be all straight. I always have a mess to clean up after I finish a project, or maybe a house to clean up because strings and scraps seem to migrate to other rooms.

    Love the peg board idea, mine are scattered so they will stay flat.

    I would love to see how this room looks when you get it organized. These pictures are always inspirational for me to work on mine!

    Ok, I would love to have the organized ruler wall like yours...I have the peg board and haven't put it up yet...but can you actually sew on that table...Mine looked like that just a bit ago, and I finally just couldn't stand it anymore :lol: , so I cleaned it all up and wow I couldn't believe I actually sewed in such disarray....I feel for you....but the rewards of getting organized is wonderful...but believe me, I'm far from there...now that my sewing table is somewhat clean, it's the rest of the room that needs some serious help LOL.....

    What do you mean the Diamond desk is unusuable? You can still get up to it and you can still get to the front of your machine so you can still sew!!!

    I didn't get much done today. Had to mend clothes for daughter going to Huston in the morning.

    it is so nice to see I am not a lone, my room looks just as bad, or worse, my room looks a lot smaller. Keep saying I'm going to get it done. Can't start quilting till I get through the mess :roll:

    Mine looks just as bad. I'm going through all my books and making piles- 1 to keep, 1 to give away and 1 to sell. The give away is winning!

    I have multiple rooms to organize before I can really sew again. Had to buy a piano dolly (flat dolly to move furniture) so I can move hubby's filing cabinets out of my new sewing room. Can't wait to be organized.

    Love your peg board- next trip to Lowe's I need to check this out.

    (Thanks for the inspiration- good luck on your organization!)
