Jan's quilt storage
Let me begin by saying 'Never say never'.
I put away my fabric because I was DONE with quilting and didn't want it staring at me, making me feel guilty. In its place I put my yarn.
Now I want my fabric in view again, but need to keep my yarn at my fingertips too. So the dining room shelving unit, the Expedit from IKEA, is the logical choice. I remembered seeing Jan Burgwinkle using her Expedit as fabric storage and doesn't it look positively fabulous? So I wanted to do it too, only with my yarn.
Here it is unloaded and in the studio. It has wheels which is practically a law in the studio, as I like to change things around, doncha know.
And here it is full of all my yarn, mostly. Whatever didn't fit is going to be given away to my lovely sister and niece. Let them figure out a place to put it.
I chose to put my yarn in this unit because it doesn't weigh as much as my fabric and because of the slide out plastic 'drawers' which are now stuffed to capacity. I love how the storage bins fit so well in the cubbies. I now need more of those for the fabric scraps which are accumulating at an alarming rate.
So now we have a bigger dining table, where we can eat, if and when I find a place for all this stuff that was in the Expedit.
That wall is now open, and ready for new art. Woowoo!
I must tell you that after all this moving and restoring and cleaning out, I am one pooped person. But soooo happy!
