My fabric storage closet in my studio is now functional. The carpet is dry and re-stretched, it has new baseboards, and the carpet was cleaned and sanitized. So tonight I thought I'd put back all my bins of fabric that got hauled out.
It took me at least fifteen minutes to figure out how I'd placed the wooden shelves I built under the wall shelves. Then another hour to figure out the bins. They're in two sizes, so I could maximize the shelf space. And then I had more bins of unfinished projects, sheers and lace, zippers- in addition to a small Elna sewing machine, and the Singer Featherweight I bought a few years ago. How on earth did I fit all that in?
I finally decided that two bins of fabric would have to find a home somewhere else in the studio, and also found some other fabric I will freecycle. I have a large bin full of plastic containers I use when I teach dyeing- I think those will end up in the garage, or maybe the other closet in the studio. I still have lots of cleaning and organizing to do- but I'm tired, and I have to get up early for work. So maybe it will get finished this weekend. We'll see.
