I Might Die Of Exposure...

I find that emptying storage shelves out of the studio and into other rooms the
rest of the house is a very exposing process. Everything is laid out in the open,
 everywhere as I continue to move out of the old studio. I feel so vulnerable!
 ...and by mid-afternoon, I still hadn't even moved these drawers.
 ...and let's not even mention the white cabinets, filled double layer
full of fabrics, buttons and a tiny bit more. Wait. Who am I kidding?
These cabinets are filled to the brim. I'm lucky I can close the doors!

They're going to remain like this while we repaint this room and the other, and then
 re-floor the new studio. Only when the new shelving arrives will they be cleared out.
 I have managed to empty the space above the cabinets. Handsome was 
happy to help me move everything off them and then vacuum and wash 
the surface so I can get up there to paint in the next day today. His 
willingness to hand stuff down to me, or to let me hand stuff to him. certainly
made for an easier and quicker time of it. I'm so very grateful for his help.
 By the end of Day Two, all that is left of clearing the walls is to take down my
television and Stitches sign; repair the holes their fasteners leave; move the
  large table and Quilter's Dream™ cabinet and cutting table out of the studio.

I've already cleaned the blinds in preparation for removing them for 
painting the room; and the windows are sparkling clean now, too.

The delay in the project will be waiting for new floor to arrive for this room, so we're
going to paint this room and then move the furniture in here until the floor comes in.
In doing so, we can move ahead with paint and flooring in the new studio.
 I have to keep moving forward now. We're at the point of no return. The
 old studio will be transformed by Sunday evening and then to the new
 studio. After all, neither one of us will like looking at this for very long.
I'll be going to an abbreviated Coffee Club today. I have to get back to work,
 so I won't be staying too long with the girls. Still a lot to do before I can rest.

ohgosh, Donna! What a lot of stuff you have! It's amazing, isn't it? Even in my small space, once I start moving things, I am overwhelmed with how much there is! But, hey! It'll be well worth all the work once you've finished. Have fun!!

Do you think you have enough fabric???? It will be just beautiful. I am enjoying the process. Upgraded to Ellisimo Gold 2! Color me happy.

Happy Easter.

Oh gosh...that's a lot of work, and a lot of stuff to put back as well, but I know it's going to be so worth it in the end. Your old studio was glorious Donna, I can only imagine what the new one is going to be like! I LOVE that cabinet with the glass drawers...and the fabric cabinet too. How do you find the strength to pull yourself out of such a wonderful studio once you're in there? I could happily live in a room like that for the rest of my life...That Handsome of yours must have some pull!!! xoxo

I am impressed with how neat everything is!

Might I guess that guests will now stay in either the Flying Cloud or your Master while you and Handsome stay in the Flying Cloud? Or maybe guests will sleep on a mattress filled with fine fabrics? I certainly see how you are vulnerable and "exposed". Thankfully Handsome is extremely understanding and helpful. Your rooms will be amazing I just know! Painting Bliss Dear...

Donna, I can't believe how neatly stacked your fabric is. Oh heck yes I can :) What is your secret? Mine always seems to be lolling one way or another.
Having moved into my new sewing room today makes it a good time to learn new habits. Can't wait to see the new room! :) Karen

All this hard work will be so well worth the effort once you have finished. I hope everything continues quite smoothly.
