Who ever said…

As many of my readers would know my craft space is pretty small, I’m not complaining just stating a fact. But being small and in a corner of our bedroom I like to try and keep it contained! So when I joined Megan over at The Mouse House for The Organised Home Project I was sew pleased when she announced that this week we would be cleaning up our craft space. Here are the before photo’s…

100_7480 (600 x 451)100_7477 (600 x 451) 100_7475 (1064 x 1416) Projects were stuffed in together, fabrics poked in any nook and cranny I could find, just a mess!

And now…100_7704 (600 x 451)All the fabrics are now organised by colour.100_7762 (451 x 600) Things have been finding new homes or put back into their rightful places.100_7769 (451 x 600)Finished quilt tops have been hang on hangers ready and waiting for their turn to be quilted.100_7709 (600 x 451)Fabrics have been purged and set aside until I decide what to do with them. Projects have been sorted into their own little containers.

I still have a pile of things waiting in the wings to sort out(still waiting for some more storage containers to arrive)but it feels sew good to have my craft space re-organised. I would also like to share a few of my storage ideas. I like tins(just ask my family)pretty tins, pretty boxes, jars and things. And I don’t just like them to look pretty I actually like to use them too…100_7771 (600 x 451)Things like selvedge's…100_7772 (600 x 451) And ribbons…100_7782 (600 x 451)My plastic drawers hold all sorts of bit and pieces too…100_7777 (451 x 600)This tin is one of my favourites and holds all my polyester threads…100_7783 (451 x 600) Who ever said storage solutions cant be pretty…

Keep stitching

Looks great Michelle. I find I can be tidy in my sewing room...unless I am sewing! When I'm mid project everything becomes a mess and then I have to purge before I can see straight to begin something else.
