Yeah it is Friday!

Yesterday evening I was just too tired to sew. I had hauled 13 file boxes and 10 rolls of drawing down to the storage room in less than an hour, made three trips to the recycling dumpster, took out the trash, and I was beat. Lots of physical labor for an office job! I don't mind though because it gets me up and moving.

I did pull some fabric for the QOV blocks.

Glen commented on how nice my new curtains and windows looked in the fabric storage room and that it would hold a lot of fabric. Well, here is some pictures of the fabric in the room. It is fairly well organized with labels on the bins and mostly organized by color.

The shelf on the left is my quilting thread and hand dyed fabrics. There is a roll of drapery lining and one of the fabric I use to make covers for my brother. On the right is backing, UFO's on the top shelf, my living room drapes that need made, and stacks of fabric cordinated for future projects. In the bins there are the t-shirts and orange fabric for a quilt for my niece, and bins with leftover clothes from previous projects.

On the opposite side of the room is all my color coordianted stacks by color or type. I have a stack of all my African prints, a stack of Jimmy Buffet fabrics, linens, and another with novelty fabrics. The bins are scraps that I just can't toss and on top is the wool pieces and parts for a bus bunk quilt for my brother that got put on hold. The little boxes on top hold elastic, velcro, cording, and some have scraps.

The desk in the middle is great for laying out fabric as I pull them from the stacks. There is some flannel for a quilt for my son laying there, a box of pieces and parts for zig zag quilts, some batting my sister-in-law gave me, and underneath a couple more bins. Humm - I think I need to do something about all these bins!

Lastly, here is the closet. I have fabric hanging that I have a lot of yardage of, a stash of baby quilts hanging, quilts, and more bins with vintage fabrics, scraps, and one with fancy fabrics. There is also leftover duck and denim that comes in handy.

So there is the big tour! It is great having this space!

This weekend I have a few alterations to get done and then I will work on the house. My brother is coming over next Thrusday for a work day so I want to get things ready for that. Have a great weekend!

Oh, is that John, Paul, George and Ringo there? Three of them, maybe John was already gone....
