Moving Day...

...has finally arrived. Thank you to all of you who continue to visit my blog despite the fact I've been posting about once a month. I promise as soon as I get settle in my new home I will start blogging again about the sewing in my life.

It's amazing how much fabric I have accumulated in just a few short months.  I came across several patterns and kits I picked up that I had forgotten about.  I found bags of fat quarters I had bought on visits to local and distant quilt shops that I had forgotten about.  And don't even get me started on the BOM packets that I found scattered around....

I ended up filling a HUGE container (the big plastic ones with the wheels on one end) and another Tuff Stuff container with fabrics.  And, that's not including the sewing machine, sewing notions, rulers, organizers, books, etc.  Wow.  It will be fun finally having a room where I can spread out and get my sewing area properly set up.  But, still, wow.

Thanks for following me on the journey.  In same ways, I feel as though I am just beginning.  So tell me, what's your secret to organizing your sewing room?


  1. Ikea shelving units. The ones that have multiple 12in x 12in cubbies. Folded the right way,you can fit a lot into each of the shelves. I have mine primarily sorted by colors followed by types (e.g. florals, brights, kids, etc). I tried tubs but could never find what I was looking for and it was hard to keep things neat inside the tubs. I tried open wire shelving, but the stacks of fabrics would fall over when you tried to pull anything out of the middle of the stack. The cubbie shelving units keep things visible but neat and tidy as well. If I were to do it again, I would pick shelves with glass (or clear plexiglas)doors to help protect the fabric from dust, etc. I have pictures on my blog site. Again, welcome back to California.

  2. I love your quilting materials Veronica and I can imagine the finished products once you get started on your quilting. You put me to shame. You work and still find time to do something productive in your spare time. You certainly are a talented young lady.
