Last week I heard a crash in the living-dining area, but couldn’t identify where the sound had come from. I knew it wasn’t all in my head because the dog was also concerned, but his tracking skills are apparently weak, so we decided to ignore it.
A few days later, I opened a cabinet that was once my built-in computer desk/office (thank you, Ikea) but had been adopted by my son, and I discovered that two of the shelves had broken due to overload! However, this is a blessing in disguise. Since my son is at college and no longer needs a work space at home, and I actually don’t need much space for a home office, I am going to take over some of that cabinet for my quilting supplies. I suspect creating my sewing supply area will be a summer-long project, but it will be fun to have everything easily accessible at the end of it.
I’ve been thinking about how to store my various supplies, including orphan blocks and fabrics I have pulled for projects that I have not yet begun working on. While in Hong Kong, I came across a stationery store that had such a variety of beautiful containers with all kinds of colors and patterns. I thought I would share it with you.
So how do you keep all your quilting bits and bobs? And scraps! Do you have an organized system? I would love to hear about it!
