DONE!!

Hello Friends!  Well, I'm actually done putting things away.  Not just in my room, but the whole house.  It's very nice to be settled among my own stuff.  My room was a challenge, for sure.  I knew I'd have to borrow space from other places and couldn't have bought this house unless the storage was there.  Here's how my room turned out.  Nothing is decorated yet, but you'll get the idea...  You can click on the pics if there's anything you want to see better.






We brought an antique piece with us to hold all the vintage tops.  It's in the downstairs Office/TV Room.


We also put shelves (what would we do without Ikea??) in the guest bedroom.  That space to the right of the shelves is how long you get to stay when you come see me  :~D!!


Downstairs next to the Laundry is a big storage room with shelves.  It holds all the quilts, tablecloths and chenille spreads.


And finally--  This shelf under the stair houses all my repros. 


Can you believe it?  Bill had NO faith that it would all fit!!  One thing about it, in a small space you HAVE to stay organized.  I'll work on that!  Speaking of work, I am ready to get to it!  How about you?  Tell me what you've been up to!  I'll finally have some time to catch up.

See you next time~

Wowzer...it all fits! I think women have a knack for packing and storing! If you have a quilter guest she'll NEVER want to leave. :o)

Oh it must feel SOOOO good! And now you can sit back and look at all that beautiful fabric in it's little nest and smile. Just look how pretty it all is, so neatly folded and coordinated on the shelves. I have been on a small break, I over did it on an exciting project of circles, and gave my self pain in my thumb joint. That made me have to stop all together, and hope it will go away so I can sew again and return to my love of quilting. I just sit here and oogle my project and think.. Please, please get better hand. I couldn't bear it if I didn't have the option to do hand work again. I need it in my life.

Oh oh oh! I get to see it in real life someday. I'm so excited to see you in St. George. Really excited. I love what you've done. You did such a great job it makes me want to sit down and sew right there. How fun. Bill's a genius but so are you.
