Expanding again and organizing

I’m expanding again!
Well, you see this shelf on the side of my room, I FELT like I needed another shelf next to it (blocking the window but that’s okay)

So of course hubby RIGHT away went upstairs and disassembled a set of shelves and brought it down and I wiped them down and we put them together

The girls quickly found out it was a cool jungle gym!

But not for long! I refolded my fabrics and expanded the collection, I had 9 piles before, now I have 14!
White, beige, yellow
Orange, red, purple, pink
Blue, light blue, teal, green
Brown, grey, black
The shelf in the middle on the left has my bobbin winder and bobbins and templates for long arm quilting.

And my thread rack had fallen down so hubby fixed that TOO!! what a guy Smile

And can’t forget the pin cushions! I think I want some sort of shelf behind there to have a tiered showcase of them.

I’ve been working on a secret project and long arm quilting a customers quilt which I won’t show yet Smile
But I can show this Women of the bible block in progress! it’s teeny tiny!

I love that the girls found a way to play on those shelves, and hope Gwen also gets home safe and sound and quicker than her family. This surprise you've been teasing us with? it was in that box wasn't it? that box has been driving me nuts since you posted about it.^_^

Nothing inspires me more than cleaning and reorganizing my sewing area. What a fun jungle gym the kids had for a short while! Who knows, they might just entice you to sew faster so they can get their playground back! LOL!!

Bea - hey try to make sure that by the time I go back to visit your craft room won't have taken over the whole house? ;P

Totally off topic but....how do you have your machine wired? It looks like the wire comes from above in the photo. Would love to know:)

Organizing is always good. It helps one to be more productive.
