Well, I had before and after pics of my tidy up job in my sewing room, but as i have done many times before, i backspaced too far and lost one.
Any one know how to avoid that?
I want the words before the pic, but when i try to go there, i lose the top picture!
Well, that's not what i came to say.
I was noticing Dawns' (the feathered nest) new studio in progress. Her stacks of fab were so neat, (just like mine are right after i clean).
But, when i start crafting or sewing, and try to pull out a piece of fabric from the horizontal stack, they get messed up.
Being a messy creative person, as opposed to a tidy creative person, sometimes the mess just stayed that way till the next time i got in the mood to organize it all again.
then i thought of how tidy the fabric store is, and it is because they have their bolts of fabrics vertical, instead of horizontal.
Aren't they just so clever that way!!
So, I went right down to the fabric store, and asked what they do with their empty cardboard the fabric comes on. They throw it away!!! (well recycle it), and said i could have as many as i want!!
Then i cut it into the height of whatever shelf i am putting the fabrics on, and they just stay much neater.
I started that project about a month ago, and the pic above is how much i got done before i hopped off to some other project, like bird nests.
I know that would drive some of you nuts, but, have no fear, I will finish it eventually, and in the meantime, you don't have to go into my sewing room. I sure don't!!! =0)
Blessings on your day.
PS When you go over to see Dawn's new studio in progress, you might want to take a look at her beautiful new granddaughter, Clara. She is a little doll!!
