Sewing Space Cleaning, Sorting & Pitching Goes On and on, and on . . .

I bet you all thought I'd finished long ago right?  HA!  I'm about half done.  I admit that my cleaning, sorting and pitching took a bit of a rest the last week or so but I am still working on it and I am making progress!  I don't want to even add up the amount of money I'm spending on plastic bins . . . .  I am happy that I'm finding plastic bins made in the USA, BJ's Costco and Home Depot all have them.
Shelf One is now full.

My little stash room is now full.  

Bins hold yarn, (I've been knitting since I was six and my Mom started me on big needles and blankets for Barbie, Midge, Skipper and Scooter), fabric, buttons, trims, embellishments and Crazy Quilt stuff.  

Shelf 2 still needs to be organized more but  at least I have places to put things away!

Bindings, Strips & pre-cut squares 2 1/2" and 5"

More of the stash is sorted.
Up off the floor and onto a high shelf just in case the basement floods.
My back up sewing machines (yes I realize that I have a bit of an addiction there . . . no wait, it's not an addiction, it's a collection!)

It's amazing the stuff you find.  I've come across three quilt tops I'd forgotten about, one I don't even remember making! (I think that just might spark an obsession discussion)

My children don't believe me that I'm actually cleaning it, sometimes I can't believe it either. I must have been crazy to start this . . . .
