Quilt Studio Cleaned .... SLOB no more

Hi, it's me the Quilt Studio slob .... I wrote about myself seven (7) days ago .... 7 long days ago.






Remember the floor above .... probably not because you couldn't see it as it was full of fabric and etc. that needed to be organized.


After working for 7 days to sort, organize and etc. I had to stop as I was pretty much organized. Every time we went out and returned home I became very depressed seeing the mess day in, day out. So yes I admit I still have some work to do but for now I have to stop and have some fun sewing and quilting. I'll be working on my room as I go along, I promise.


Here are my fabrics all sorted. Bottom 2 shelves hold QS fabrics, top 2 shelves hold other.

All my rulers are organized and easy to reach.

Check out that floor ... CLEAN in my 14 ft long x 8 ft high x 42 inch deep closet. I can now again walk in one side and out the other.


The books/magazines that I decided to keep.



Now I'm not completely done .... these are my scraps sorted into bags of light, dark, children, batik and etc. This is a work in progress. Most are strips for string quilting.




This is just a little of what I actually threw out for the trash guys .... yes my neighbors think I'm nuts. I mean who goes out at 6AM to take a photo in their DH's robe (ME).


These are the books/magazines that I plan to sell, donate, loan, giveaway and etc.


Photo of fabrics and etc. that I plan to donate to local charity sewing/quilting groups.


Here's a short video .......... LET's QUILT

Wow, now that is organized. I am working on getting my sewing room cleaned and organized. Don't you wish there was a way to recycle our bits and pieces of fabric? We should invent something.

You go girl! Looks absolutely perfect. Now, I want to see the same area a month from now :-)

Brenda said...

Job VERY well done!!! You deserve a night on the town or at least dinner out for the work you have done on that room!!! Excellant!!! I love the cutting area. I need one of those - right now, I use the area on my sewing table, granted, it is a qulters sewing table, but I think all the extra room on it was for the quilts I am supposed to be making and not for cutting or storing stuff on.......
So yes, lets get sewing!! You are going to love the roominess of your space now and the creative juices are just going to make you giddy with energy!! Sew up a storm!! (L.L.)

Congratulations! Fun to see a video, too. You've done an amazing job -- good luck keeping it in usable, if not perfect, shape.

Okay, the cleaning you did in your sewing room is awesome and I should try to do the same!! I am impressed!!I've taken "before" pictures in my sewing room, now I need to clean it so I can take the "after" shots. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog!
