The bedroom in living room situation was a tad annoying, but to look at the silver lining it pushed me to do a little purging and reorganizing. With everything piled into the living room and kitchen/craft studio I decided that nothing would go back into the bedroom without careful consideration. I also took the opportunity to reorganize, post on craigslist, and donate items I don't really use much.
The bedroom and living room came together fairly quickly and for the most part are looking pretty good. The kitchen and craft studio is another story. It was starting to get a little out of hand with fabrics piling up and papers stacked everywhere. I was running out of room fast and didn't know how best to contain everything in my small little space. Enter pinterest to the rescue!
A while back I pinned this fabric folding tutorial and figured this was as good a time as any to test it out. Susan from Living with Punks showed me how to appease the bit of Type-A I have lurking within. Check out her easy to follow tutorial on the proper way to fold fabric. Seriously.... it works and makes my fabric stash look so neat and pretty. I kinda felt like I worked at the Gap and was folding t-shirts, which made me think of this cute love story over on the blog Cakies. yes... my mind hops from one thing to the next.
Here is my fabric stash piled on the desk
My first thought on seeing all the neatly folded and stacked fabrics was: "Holy Cow I have a lot of fabric... I need to get sewing!" The good thing is I have a lot of ideas for projects. The room needs a little more work putting things away and I think I'll be ready to start sewing again. First project on the list is a baby quilt for a friend having his first baby!
