Fabric Storage

Alright friends, I'm almost back to new!  I made a return trip to the ophthalmologist on Thursday and other than some scarring in my eye from when my pupil was stuck I am on the mend.  I can actually see the keys as I type and can read blogs again  YYIIPPEEE!!!!! I am slowly weaning off my eye drops and should be done in about 6 weeks.  However, he warned me at the first sight of it returning I am to call immediately otherwise see him in 5 weeks.  I hope I never have this again. 

Although, it did give me time to work on the craft room since crafting was out.  So here are some updated pictures...

Well now it doesn't look like I have that much fabric now does it? lol

We also got some new chairs so I can sit for hours down there... don't mind the mess... I'm not completely done organizing yet.

Then I redid my hutch a little bit and emptied out 2 tubs!!!! The bottom shelf is all unfinished projects I started and never finished.  Those will be finished up soon. Hopefully... ;-)

I'm hoping to start a few new things here soon since my vision is so much better.  I have some painting to do so that I can do yet another tutorial for those of you just beginning the primitive journey.  A must see to save yourself tons of money by "primitizing" your thrift store finds.  I will see you soon. :-)

Before I go I have to share this cartoon with you.  One of my friends Becca from Folk art by the Harbor posted this on my Facebook wall.  Is this not me or what???? LOLOLOLOLOL

Glad to hear your eye is improving and on the mend. Sounds just awful!! I was so excited to see you used some Longaberger baskets in organizing your fabric, I to did the same thing a year ago at this time!! Looks great, keep up the good job. Anita

Hi, Mary - you poor thing. But I'm so glad to hear that you can see again and follow your blogs.
I think you craft room looks great.
You are way more organized than I am.
I can't wait to get the painting tutorial. It sounds exciting!

Thank goodness! It's so scary to have eye problems. Looking forward to learning something new about painting.

Good to know you are on the mend Mary! Look at it this way, everything happens for a reason-you got your fabric organized (though I hope you don't ever go through it again!)
Can't wait to see your new projects.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Mary...what wonderful organizing! I could use one of those kinds of shelving/cubby units...mine are just on shelving and things tend to fall down the back.
Giggles about the cartoon!

In the Spring 2012 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects there is a quote "Friends are like fabric, you can never get enough". I just got done organizing my fabric also, what fun [re]discoveries I made!

Yikes Girlfriend...I go MIA for a bit and come back to find out you've been half blind....but still stirring up a storm!! Loved the make-do chair tutorial - but I'm still chicken!! Me and staple guns probably wouldn't be a good match. ;o) Your organizing efforts look amazing though - wish I had a space to dedicate to crafting and supplies. Everything is such a pain to get to - so, hey - that's my excuse for now. Hope the eye heals good as new and there are no recurrences...and wishing you a wonderful new week. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Glad to hear you can see better again and can't wait to see what you share with turning thrift store finds into prim treasures :)

Angela said...

WooHoo!! Glad you are almost over the eye problems. Will be looking forward to seeing your posts and what you are up to again. Love how you organized your fabric. Wish mine looked that nice. Cute cartoon. Have a great Monday.

Angie Berry said...

Oh that's awesome news about your eye Mary! Glad you can see again, yay!

Hey, I'm loving your new craft space! Yes, that's still a lot of fabric, lol! I know that has to be a tall cabinet, looks like it reaches the ceiling, hehe. Comfy chairs are a must, that's for sure. Even better that they're pretty. =]

I've been working in my area too and for the first time ever, I started putting all the unfinished projects together. I had them strung out all over the place. When I have them in one area, I see that I love to start but not finish something. Oops!

ROFL!!! That cartoon is hilarious!! Yes, I would say it is you, hehe.

Wishing you a productive week~
