Delight!!!

My weekend:


See below? Well, Welcome, because behind that dark, ordinary looking door is my brand spanking new quilting room!!! It is really a bar area in our home, that has been used for storage before now (read messy place to stash stuff). It is 10 feet by 5 feet. And the bestest part of all! is that my Dear Husband put in storage shelving ( the wire kind) along all of one wall! You can see in the above picture, through the opened shutters of the bar that there are 3 shelves, each 8 feet long...room enough to spare to store all my quilting goodies!!! It is just the coolest thing ever!!

Now I can get the fabric out of the guest bedroom, from under the bed, in the closet, in the dining room, in the other closet, all over the house in fact...and store it labeled, folded, neatly out in the open where I can see what I have and what exactly is going on here!!! Sorry, I know that is a lot of exclamation points, but I am so jazzed... so now, I am in the process of sorting and labeling small boxes of projects and fabric. This will involve some culling and donating and giving to friends, too. Now I can tell what are batics, and 1930's, and reproductions. A fun thing to note: the wall paper is a metallic from the early 1980's, and is in the pattern of clamshells! Isn't that fun? Just perfect, if you ask me. Woo hooo! Cool, huh...


Soooo...I will be working on getting everything that is scattered through the house into here and organized as well. Hope you all have a great Monday!!

Stitching space of your own how fab. I have a daughter who is about to move out so I will then have a "Stitching Room" of my own.

Brilliant ! You'll have loads of fun sorting out I'm sure. Bet you've forgotten half of what you own - lol ! Looking forward to piccies when it's all done.

Excellent!! You will be so much more productive when you are organized!! I can't wait to see it fully loaded.

Oh, how fun to be able to gather and organize!! Now you can drink and sew, much better than drinking and driving...lol

Linda said...

Oh you will have fun filling up those shelves, and probably find things you forgot you had.

I was trying to figure out what the pattern on the wall was...I think my uncle had that behind his bar! What a great spot to quilt.

Can't wait to see everything in place! It will also keep everything out of the light so no chance of light damage.
