Somewhat anticlimactic for some of you, but this is just the right size for me. And I am so happy to see it after most of it has been stored for more than a year! I know I have to refold some things, but I'm totally looking forward to doing that. I also have to put the scrap bins somewhere, but I think they'll fit behind the fat quarters up on the top shelves. Then I'll be able to see everything I have and be inspired--either to sew or to go shopping.
|Hello pretties! I'm so glad you're home!|
The storage unit is the largest Kallax unit sold by Ikea. (Where do they get these names?) This was super-easy to put together, but you really do need two people. I couldn't lift it up by myself and the boxes were really heavy. It comes in smaller sizes, but I got this size because the closet in here is really small and all of my stuff fits on this one. Even the books, there on the lower shelves.
|The batiks came home, too!|
With this put together, I have just one more area to organize, the tables where the sewing machines actually go. Kind of important. I have a lot of motivation to get that finished this week, though, because next week the renovation of the rest of the house starts in earnest. Didn't I mention that? Our new house was built in 1973 and only had one owner, who never really made any changes to the house. It was on the market for more than a year before we came along, and I guess we were the only ones crazy enough (or desperate enough) to take on updating it. Here's an example of what we're facing: harvest gold fiberglass shower. Original equipment in great shape, but really, really bad just the same. The electrician has already been here, but next week it's time for demo, so I want the sewing room to be done so I have a happy place to retreat to away from the dust.
|Even St. Francis seems to like his new home!|
Anyway, wish me luck! I did cut some fabric today, and the last installment of the Intricate Stitches quilt is up on Tuesday, so I better go finish! Hope everyone has a wonderful, restful day.
