Do you ever feel so overwhelmed by a mess that you are paralyzed? Well, that's about where I am now in the unpacking department! It needs to get finished but I just don't know how to go about it anymore. I don't like that feeling. Well, this morning I was determined to work in my studio some more after leaving the mess for more than a week. I wasn't inspired but decided that I should just take one item at a time and eventually it will all get done.
During a break, I jumped over to Pinterest. It always inspires me. Well, I came across Dawn's gorgeous sewing studio. Oh my! One look, and I knew I would organize my fabric today! I used to keep my fabric in a chest of drawers. It worked perfectly. Well, the movers broke the 4th drawer, and it won't be fixed or replaced until the end of the year. Ugh! So, I decided to empty the chest of drawers and move the fabric to a piece that was down in the basement. This particular storage piece is from Target and belonged to the kiddos. They used it in the foyer of our old home for their shoe cubbies. Well, we are not using it in this house. So, I decided to turn it on end and use it for my fabric.
I have spent all morning folding and organizing fabric. This is going to be wonderful, and I can tell I am going to like this more than the chest of drawers. I folded each piece of fabric into a 12"x12" piece since that's the size of each cubby. Folding the fabric into large pieces really keeps the bulk down. I like that!
Then I organized each cubby into colors. It looks so pretty sitting out in my room. Some of you may recognize this corner of my room as the corner for my new Scrap 'n Cube paper tower. Well, I moved it. LOL! Yes, I just cannot get this room how I want it yet. Also, I did e-mail Dawn and ask her if she has a problem with dust on the fabric and what she does about it. She said she hadn't thought about dust but was more concerned about the sun fading her fabrics so she keeps her blinds closed when the sun is shining in. I may have to do that too.
And lastly, some of my fabrics have a sticker on them with the name of the fabric and the yardage I purchased. I keep the stickers on the fabric as I find it very helpful!
Have a blessed weekend, and thanks for stopping by! Blessings,
