There will be only “After” pictures here, as I’m too embarrassed by the state of this room before, but a few of my good friends and family have seen the piles of crap, I mean stuff, that were all over the place. I am only going to treat you to what it looks like now that I’m no longer embarrassed, and before it is completely what I want. I now want to show you the thing about my weekend’s work of which I am most proud:
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s EMPTY FLOORSPACE!
Each cutting mat is 24 x 36 inches. Enough room to foxtrot, at least, maybe even waltz. Probably not Viennese, but that’s above my skill level, anyway.
For those of you who might wonder how much quilting fabric I actually have, I’ll start my 360-degree room tour with that fabulous new shelving unit, on the south wall.
I plan to put a cutting table here, and have the left set of baskets under the table. I may have to move the flannel design wall to the other side of the room. I also plan on getting a flip chart easel for my foam core board, for pinning on my work in progress. Or maybe I could hang some kind of pinning board to the wall. This last photo shows the remaining bags of stuff that I need to go through, but that seems like an easy thing to get done.
In the course of my weekend, I broke down endless amounts of cardboard, emptied lots of bags, etc. There were a few found gems, not least of which is the original label I made for my second quilt ever! I guess I better sew it on now, eh?
