Operation Organization – My Quilting Room
So this past week I spent a little time organizing and cleaning up my sewing area. I got it in my head I really wanted a design wall, especially to work on my Farmer’s Wife, so I shopped around, but I nothing really suited my needs at a price i was willing to pay. I decided to DIY it and opted for a simple curtain rod with tabs and a piece of Warm and Natural. Works like a charm. The only thing is I now want a smaller one to put next to my sewing area.
This whole set up cost under $35. I managed to score some sales. It’s also big enough to put a larger pieces on (see below) and if I get my act together I may be able to move the bookshelf to the other room. Then I can extend the rod out. Maybe another support piece up there – get some more hangers and hang even large quilts to get a decent photo of it.
The closet is behind this wall of batting and I also managed to clean it out and put most of my fabrics and things inside. Leaving the rest of the area with some breathing room. 6 bags of things went to the Goodwill this week.
I can turn my Gidget II table around when I need the back table for FMQ. I may try that and put a little folding table to the side, since I seem to like that L-shape setup.
Next up I want to organizing the basement, so I can re-organize my yarn/spinning room – hence moving the bookshelf. That one is really overflowing as well.
