I spent 6 hours out in the Thread Shed today.
It was hard to get back in the door this morning.
I really tore it apart yesterday.
You have to make a BIG mess in order to
Click Images to Enlarge:
Every flat surface had piles and piles of
quilting and art supplies on top of it
just waiting for me to make a decision...
Keep it? or Give it away?
I was in the right mood to get rid of things
I haven't used for awhile.
Several boxes were filled, loaded into the pick up
and are going to the Goodwill Store in town....
I enjoy giving old furniture a new life in the Thread Shed.
I use the old island from our kitchen as a cutting counter and to
store my stash of landscape fabrics.
I use two old antique cupboards to store my main fabric stash.
The cupboard doors close and keep the light and dust off the fabrics.
My son recently gave me his big TV cupboard,
since his new big screen TV doesn't fit inside it.
It has big double doors in the front.
Today I turned it into a media center for the Thread Shed.
The TV and DVD player fit inside, along with the stereo and speakers.
There is room for all of my Instructional DVD's, music, movies, audio books.
I just close the big doors and all of the mess and clutter are gone!
I spent the afternoon moving all of my textile paints and
surface design materials to a bigger cupboard.
It will be great to have it all in one place and be able
to get my hands on what I need very quickly.
By 5:00 I was cleaning off the design wall:
I removed this mountain landscape quilt I started years ago.
I have additional fabrics, along with the inspiration image.
30 x 36 inches
I would like to give it all away to one of you.
Please leave me a comment...
Gunnr will pick a winner out of his food dish next week!
I will continue working on the Thread Shed.
If I remember the camera, I will take a few
in-progress photos to post here soon.
