Go Me!

Well I will admit that I obviously did not know what I was getting into since I thought that it might take an hour.. maybe two to get it all folded, bolted and stored back... Ha!

It's done and it looks pretty dang good if I do say so myself.  Where a week ago it looked like THIS  today it's looking a lot leaner, meaner and a lot more organized!

Top shelf  - clothing fabric, most on homemade fabric bolts made from foam core board

Second Shelf - baskets full of sizable scraps and fat quarters sorted by color. ( the other container is all Kaffe Fassette fabrics since I LUV them so much!)

Third Shelf - vintage sheets, muslin and quilt yardage

Fourth- Felt and novelty/freaky fabrics

Fifth shelf- (mostly unseen) large containers with batting and other odd ball items.

Not bad huh???

and YES... I got rid of that UGLY light fixture.  The one I got is school-house style, very simple to the point of plain but a nice relief from the stained glass monster!

Looks great. I know what you mean about how long that job took. I did that myself a little more than a year ago and it took me two entire weeks to finish. I kept thinking I'd stop and give up and just push it all back into the hiding places but what I had done to that point looked so nice it kept me going. I think it took me longer though because I rewashed, ironed, and then refolded the new way and then put into the closet on my new shelves or into the bins on my new shelves.

Go You! Took me longer than 1 day to do my studio! And why is it it does not stay all pretty and nice?? Nooooo...I destroy as I create.
You Rock!

It's kinda like a zen experience to pet all of the fabrics, isn't it? With commentary along the way such as "oh, I remember why I bought that fabric!" I couldn't sew for a year afterwards for fear of messing everything up.
