Thanks to everyone that stopped by on the Holiday Lane Blog Hop and left me such nice comments!
I love reading what you have to say and it is the best form of encouragement!
I am in the process of moving my current sewing space from the middle of my living room
to the recently vacated upstairs bedroom.
It has been an uphill battle with my hubby as he wanted to make it into a "guest" room.
We have not had overnight guests in the entire time we have been married, almost 30 years!
So I told him I didn't think that was a good plan.
Then there is a twin bed and 2 dressers in there.
He wanted to keep the bed and use the dressers and the closet for rotating his clothes by season.
Nope, not going to happen.
It will just become a crap hole.
You know it will.
I know it will and now he knows it will.
So, DD1, who just recently moved out, took the bed, but left the trundle portion.
I am going to let him keep that until after Christmas
so that when DD2 comes home she will have a bed.
After that it's a blow up mattress baby!
I decided to keep the dressers, but I need to empty them out so I can use them for storage.
I also cleared out the closet.
I have steam cleaned most of the carpet
just have one small spot to do now that one of the dressers is moved to it's new place in the room.
I know you are dying to see my current messy room so here you go.
My sewing space in all it's messy glory!
This weekend I need to move all this stuff to it's new home and reclaim my living room!
I have sooooo much more fabric and stuff in bins in the basement too.
I am going to let you in on my plan for that stuff.
I am going to have my big, strong son carry some of the bins to the new sewing room.
He will have to do this several times!
There are a LOT of bins.
I will go through said bins and sort out stuff I want to keep.
The stuff I don't want/need anymore will go through a process.
First I will be listing it for sale here on my blog every week
(and this will probably go on for many months).
It's true, I am a fabric horder!
You probably already suspected but now I am out of the basement!
I think I will choose a day of the week and
do it on the same day every week until I finish going through the bins.
What doesn't sell in a week will go over to my ETSY shop for a few months.
Whatever doesn't sell there will get listed as destash/swap or donated.
This way I will have what I want to work with and clear out the clutter.
Will you guys hold me to this plan please?
I have been carrying the bolts of fabric I have upstairs first.
This is the first stack to go to the new room!
(yes there are more)
I plan to get several tall book cases to put my fabric into so I can see it.
I am hoping that will be a huge inspiration to my sewing too.
How have you organized your sewing space?
Any tips on things to do or probably more importantly not to do?
I would be eternally greatful!
I have put the following (in yardage) up for sale in my ETSY shop if anyone is interested.
Oh rest assured I am keeping some too!
I just thought I would share the wealth!!
Last but not least I want to let you know that I have joined Pinterest.
If you are there too, stop by, follow me and let me know what you think of my "pins".
It is taking me a long time to learn new things but I am getting there.
I learned how to use Google Drive the other day and was pretty proud of myself!
Now I know how to host a PDF using it.
All this moving makes me want to take a nap.
No rest for the wicked!!!
OK, send me those suggestions and I will have a giveaway to the person's suggestion I like the best!
Now, aren't you glad you read all the way to the end?
Please make sure I can contact you in case you are the lucky winner.
If there are more than one suggestions I love there may be a second winner.
That one will be a surprise!
I'll let you know next Friday (December 7th)
