We started off with a trip to the container store (I'd never been there) it was quite overwhelming. I saw tons of stuff I wanted but they are a bit high in price but so very nice. There were having a sale on one brand that I liked and did buy a metal basket that is the perfect size for storing fat quarter sized fabrics.
After we plundered around in the store for a good while (till little Ian & the husbands were bored stiff) we went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. That of course was most yummy. On the way home hubby and I stopped at Home Depot and I picked up the other shelves I needed for completing the organizing of the fabric room. I refolded fabric and sorted it for what seemed like hours but it's all in order once again.
I found half finished projects, fabric cut out that I no longer remember what it was for and other "wonderful" surprises.
I just have more stuff than space and I am so sentimental that somethings I just can't let go of. After all those craft shows I just took all my booth display and dumped it in the room and in short order it came to this sad state.
I couldn't get to my cutting table at all and as you can see
the fabric cutter is covered with quilts.
I just couldn't stand to even go in there.
All fabric has been sorted by type/color and put in little bins/baskets. All the items on
each shelf go together (general craft/jewelry display/fabric) so hopefully it will stay this way for a good while - or till craft show season hits again.
I am coming into the home stretch of the book I am illustrating - only 4 pages left to finalize! We are hopeful to get it to the printers the first half of February. After that I'll be sharing a little sneak peak.
