Sew organized!

I have rearranged my sewing room to meet my needs a bit better. I had to rearrange the closets and the see through drawers. My hubby was so sweet as he added shelves in both closets for me to arrange as needed. The drawers had to be reworked because my stash of yarn keeps GROWING! Never mind that I crochet constantly......I always have a skein here and there leftover.

I have one closet full of different types of fabrics with storage at the top. The other closet is mainly for crafts, paints, gifts, records filing and holiday decorations that can't go into the attic. I also store ribbons and tissues and bags in one closet. Nice to have it all handy.

This room gets a ton of natural sunlight...which is why Dean suggested it be used for the sewing room.

The sewing room doubles as a place for our bowflex. (Hence, seeing it in the photo.)
We don't use it as much now that we have a gym membership. We are 'storing' it for when our son goes off to college or gets his first apartment. (in about 7 years!)
There are days I'd like to put it in the attic but the moment that thought crosses my mind, someone goes in and uses it!

As for the extreme NEATNESS you see.....
I have to keep it organized and "tucked in" because Leo (our kitty) likes to play in here when I work. I do not want to end up with a cat in the ER so being organized helps me avoid disaster of the feline (and canine) kind.

You've always been so organized. Remember at Apple One= you had the organized binder with applicants and I had my huge "stack" that I looked through when trying to place someone.........WHEN we placed someone!!
