Clearing the Deck

Or should I say decks, as in plural....in other words, multiple cluttered surfaces. As of late, I have been somewhat confined okay quite a bit confined to the house. My youngest daughter has been dealing with some health issues and is home from Montreal. Soooo....I thought I should make good use of my time. Let me share some of my progress with you.


 A little fat quarter storage....CD holders from Ikea do the trick. In all honesty, I still have two huge rubber maid containers full, that I need to refold, since using them to pack breakables etc. when we moved over a year ago.


 The design walls up and working.....lovely way to display quilts when not being used!!


 The Long Arm all cleared off.....time to start longarming again. Hmm....is that even a word??


 Lots of storage, for works in progress.....trust me, that is just the touch of the iceberg....there are many many more buckets of those. What can I say, it's part of my process.


 See....all clear.



 Extra, sitting down, ironing space.


 I believe in using every nook and cranny....for all those awkward things.


 Storage right up to the ceiling!!!!!


 SOOO.....DOES UNEARTHING THE ELLIPTICAL TRAINER MEAN I ACTUALLY HAVE TO USE IT?????


Me and my drill got a little carried away....like I said, I like to use every nook and cranny.


 Speaking of drills.....I even organized my tool area!!!

 Now that the cutting table has been cleared off....does that mean I have to start sewing???? 

Note my design wall....my little Paige has been at it again.

We moved over a year ago and I finally unpacked the last box, on Monday......doing the dance of joy!!!!!

Now I'm bracing myself for the Kitchen Reno.

  6. A++ for organization! How did you hang the quilts above the sofa (2nd photo)? One looks as if it's floating on a black wall. Looks terrific!

  7. Yes, you have to use the elliptical...consider it creative time!;)

    Hope your kiddo is feeling better and thanks for making us all jealous of your space!;)

  8. It looks like a great space to work. I'm pretty impressed with your fabric collection - you obviously have a lot of stash...

  9. You have done a great job getting things in order! You will now have to switch you thinking from unpacking and straightening up to sewing and creating. I have been thru a kitchen reno and it can be a challenge if you haven't prepped for it. One thing I did was have my electrician install a receptacle for the stove in the basement so I could still cook. The fridge ended up in the dining room and microwave was in the enclose porch. I washed dishes in the basement in the laundry tub. There was a lot of walking between spaces to cook a meal, but I was glad to at least still have a stove.

  10. What an amazing space! I believe organizing becomes a vicious circle! But you have inspired me. Now yes, it is time to get back to sewing!!

  12. Love all of this! And just in time as I am about to design a new sewing room! Is that a door over the Ikea CD racks? I have two that I am using for FQ storage; they work beautifully!

  13. OMG!!! What a "stash" you have! No wonder it's taken you a year to get unpacked and organized. I have the same Brother machine and love it :)

    Yes...now it's time to sew and create again :)

    Hope your daughter will be OK.

  15. Your quilting area looks amazing! Yes, longarming is a word - I use it all the time, and if you are sewing, you have a valid excuse for not using the elliptical! Wish I lived as close to an IKEA as you obviously do - my sewing area would look so much nicer! Whoop whoop!!

    1. Thanks.....I just bought it from my local quilt shop....they also sell sewing machines. I was lucky the brother machine just happened to fit really well. I think Janome makes a very similar table.
