But, I have another area in need of a bit of TLC... my stash! I used to sew in the closet you can spy below (minus Tucker's litter box I might add!). Before we moved in my Mom and I came over to measure windows and closet shelves. She observed that this would make a nice sewing area and it did for 8 years. I loved having a little space of my own and I could easily wheel my sewing table out into the family room when I had a large project.
The person who designed our house did a great job in this laundry room with LOTS of storage. There are four kitchen pantry style slide out shelves behind those big doors.
Those piles in the middle need a sort and fold and the dishes belong in my mosaic studio.
I need to make room for this stuff... some of which does have a home like those Valentine prints and my large bin of strings. The eQuilter box is full of yummy new fabric and the 6+ yards of cute B&W bird flannel (50% off at Joann.com) for Project Linus backings fresh from the dryer could use a temporary home.
Last stop is the walk in closet where I used to have my sewing table on wheels between the walls of shelves. Most of this stuff is sorted, labeled and stored in plastic bins. I have knitting UFOs and yarn in here as well as all of my cross stitch UFOs and fabrics. Can you tell I've never met a craft I didn't like?
I'm not going to get side tracked into these except to grab my embroidery hoops, inventory my needles and MAYBE start a list of UFOs. Or maybe not if that seems too discouraging on top of my quilting UFOs. I'll see... but again some organizing of the free floating stuff will create valuable space as these are nice deep shelves.
