|View from the doorway|
To be honest, there are still a few boxes hiding out behind the cutting table, but for all intents and purposes, it is a functional room!
A pseudo-panoramic view of the shelving; looking left from the doorway, starting off with silks and brocades, then next shelf to the right is cotton & scraps, then the corner, in which tall, skinny things are stored, like yardsticks, zip ties & giant clamps, then the linen, lace, and "other" shelf. The last two shelves are machines, tools, notions, & patterns. I've put boxes of "in-progress" projects across the top of the shelves. One day, I may get some coordinating boxes, but for now, the hodgepodge works.
The cutting table is accessible from 3 sides, and lives next to the window. I've also stored pattern making supplies, ironing & pressing tools, as well as the Big Sewing Machine.
And then, turning completely around, on the other side of the door, I've gutted the closet, installed a large bookcase and cobbled together some shelves for the empty space, and have stored all my "non-sewing" crafting supplies. (Mostly card/scrapbooking & clay)
All of the plastic tubs are sorted, organized, and labeled. (whew!) I still need to go through the canvas bins and properly sort and label the narrow wares, but is more or less somewhat functional.
More importantly, I need to go through my patterns and organize them and put everything back together in packets - I'm really bad about returning pieces to their proper location!
All the yarn lives on a bookcase in the guest room (aka "Princess Room", if you ask my niece), as there really isn't an inch to spare in here! Now I just need to get the rest of my house & yard back into shape (again) and it will be time for some sewing!
