Hurricane Dee...

 I really never realized just how much "stuff" was crammed into my sweet,
not-so-little armoire. Boy, was I surprised as I moved things around and 
tried to straighten up the studio again. Half of the room still looks like
Ground Zero for Hurricane Dee! I'm exhausted, but still have all of this to go.
 This is where one of the Lack Wall Shelves from Ikea was installed. (The other 
one is in our living room, and it looks fabulous in there, too!) I've placed all the 
special things that were scattered around the room onto these shelves to clear 
my sewing tables for those things that have to be close at hand when I'm working.
(I'll share close-up photographs of my shelves when I have good (no-rain) daylight.)
 So, this side of the room is cleaned up. I now have a table wide enough for 
Miss Ellie so that I don't have to move her when the embroidery unit is attached.

I also moved the television lower on the wall. I haven't been able to camouflage
the cables attached to it yet, so lowering it leaves less cable showing. I also put
acorns on the corners of it. They were created just for me when I had my shop.
 I still need drawers for some of my ribbons, tapes and fabric and these are perfect.
Many of the contents are set to be used in the near future, so they're visible and 
close at hand when I'm ready to pull them to sew. They're also pretty to look at
through the clear plastic drawers and inspire me to start sewing them right away!
So, even though I still have a way to go, I can see the end of the storm.
I think I might just have to sit and look around for a while when I finally finish.
Hurricane Dee will pass and it will be smooth sewing from now on!
 I just realized that this is post #1600. I think it might be time for a
giveaway for my faithful followers friends this week. Stay tuned!

Ah ah ah ah ah ... Donna, you made me laugh!!!!! It's exactly the situation common to every creative woman: lot of stuff and a big mess!!! Your craftroom is so beautiful!

Lesley said...

Looks like a wonderful place to be!

Chris said...

Ohhh.....such a depressing job but when it's done we're so 'up'!
What I did with my cord - painted it with the wall paint then wrapped it in that white coil cover that's sold at Home Depot. Not perfect but nicer than the black cord. Can't wait to see your room finished :-)

Whew thank goodness this is a storm of fabrics and all things fun and creative. It does look overwhelming however you have made such great progress. I found myself trying to see every detail in your photos because you have such beautiful and interesting treasures. Now your studio will have renewed energy! Creative Bliss Dear...

Good Morning Donna, Did you ever think you had that much stuff until you started to organize it? I always think I know I have a color of thread in my stash, but finding it that is the problem. I enjoy Tag's story in your previous post. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

If you think your room looks like a hurricane hit mine must be a combination,hurricane, earthquake and tornado. LOL girl it looks pretty nice to me.

It's not easy tidying and sorting but looking so good Donna - hang in there and it will be amazing when you are all done!

Have a great day.
