Fabric organizing, now that I am finally able to post again!

I have been unable to post for quite some time because somehow the hard drive on my I-Mac died!  Not sure what happened exactly but now it is fixed (not in the budget!) and I can get back to blogging.

I have been busy sewing away and keeping busy.  My kids are away visiting with their Dad and that is always a hard time for me.  I hate having my kids away from me.  So while they are gone, I have been tidying and sewing.

First I really had to fix up the spare room to accommodate the fabric overflow.  I found a great deal on shelving at Wal-Mart and bought 3 units for 30.00 plus tax total!  Then I assembled them and sorted the fabric onto them. Here are the before and after photos:
Before, all the fabric heaped everywhere!

Cube shelving set up and loaded. 

It is even somewhat organized by fabric type and co-ordinates!
I am very happy with the way this turned out and how easy it is to find what I am looking for.  Now if I could just get some organizing done to the fabric that is shelved in the cutting room!  My focus is learning to be grateful for what I have and the space I have to store it in.  I am very blessed and I need to learn how to take care of it so it can be used wisely by everyone who sews in my home!
I have a few "finishes" to share as well as soon as I get the photos loaded into this new hard drive :)
Have a great day!

Looks very nice! I need to get my sewing area cleaned back up. It's a mess. Wouldn't be so bad if it were in a room that I could close the door and no one saw but me. But, it is out in the open for all to see the mess of being creative. ;-)
