No Sewing Machine Yet!

My sewing machine has been in the shop
for a month now.
Even though they said they will call when it's finished,
they are getting a phone call today.

In the meantime.
I've been cleaning and organizing my fabric cabinets.

Boy, does this take a while!
If I didn't have so much fabric,
it wouldn't take that long, would it?

Here are the before and after photos:

I started out organized way back when,
but it slowly became this mess of fabric,
stuffed onto shelves 
wherever it would fit.

Now I can see what I have and it's neat and tidy.
Hopefully it will last for a while!

I have part of another cabinet to fold and organize, too.


Happy Quilting!

I hope you get your machine back soon! You used your alone time very wisely, though.

Boy....can I relate to the first photo! I start out with neatly folded stacks then in working on a project I keep pulling things out and it takes forever to get them folded and back to where they belong. Hopefully, you'll be a good influence on me! Good morning from a VERY chilly WV....

STILL no machine???? Oh no, but at least you are putting your sewing time to good use. It looks so organized.

Your fabric looks awesome! It's fun to reorganize once in awhile, but I do hope you get your machine back soon. Luckily I have more than one backup machine, as I inherited a machine almost identical to mine and I also inherited a featherweight.

It is so pretty!! I love my cabinet like that-I use it for my donation quilt fabrics. Now when you open the cabinet you feel like you are in a store shopping!!
