Seriously folks things were BAD, really really bad. So bad I can't even show you the photos. I've been sewing so much and not really putting things back where they belong and well, let's just say it got very out of hand.
I did actually try on several occasions to make things better. Each time I'd go through my materials I'd just wind up finding something I wanted to make (much more fun than organizing). The Big Clean was just not happening.
My desperate measure was to hand my machine over for a long overdue servicing. Without my machine to sew, I'd have no choice but to get things in order! Here are the results:
Welcome to My Crafty Nook!
I'll still be sewing on the dining room table but at least this work space under the stairs is usable again!
Eventually I would like to put a table here that I can sew on,
I will be on the lookout for one this yard sale season!
I'd then move some of these materials onto shelves that I will put up on the walls.
I love these baskets (all 8 for $1) I found at a golf course yard sale.
They are plastic coated wire and were used to hold golf balls.
More supplies here and only 1 bin of scraps,
(I did separate quite a bit according to color & size, this is the leftovers)
I do have a couple more bins of assorted materials hiding out in my son's room.
Okay so now where is MY MACHINE! It's been a week and a half. He says to call tomorrow, it will probably be ready (probably??). Fingers crossed, I am SEW ready!
