I'm trying, I'm really trying to tidy up my craft room. I know that I'm lucky to not only have a craft room, but to have a great big room with a lovely sunny window (in fairness, me and the hubster live in a 4 bed house, with attic and basement so to NOT have a craft room would be weird), but I just can't seem to keep it tidy. Keep it tidy? OK, make it tidy in the first place.
I keep making these plans to have a massive clear up in there, but it's never going to happen, so I'm starting small. First up I bought some comic boards and started wrapping anything 1/2m or larger. The 1m or larger pieces are on a full comic board (at the back, above), the half metres are on half a comic board. I'm nothing if not thrifty. I also realised I could get fabric in 2 deep in my Expedit, so it made sense to have one board half size so I can see what's behind. To the left is a pile of layer cake squares, some Summersville FQs and .... something else, can't remember! Not sure what to do with them, so they live here.
My small collection of solids got the same treatment. The shelf above my neat fabric is my collection of bunny fabrics in 2 piles on the right, charm squares on the left. Inside that cupboard is a big mess of felt.
So I've sorted out 4 cubes of my 12-cube Expedit... I still have some way to go. This is a box of solid scraps, with a wooden box of small but large scraps. I really don't know what to do with them.
erm... and this would be a big mess!
To the side of the Expedit is a 4-drawer unit which holds my FQs neatly folded and arranged by colour. I did that a while ago and have managed to keep it neat. It would appear that quite some mess has grown up around it though!
I'm going to show my progress on my blog, hoping it might encourage me to do more! If you don't see another post in the next month about my Great Craft Room Tidy, start nagging me please!
