sometimes it needs a blitz

Because I like to have several projects on a go at the same time, I am very good at organising them.
Each new projects gets its own project box, which includes most of the materials I plan to use (fabrics, threads, yarn, needles etc).  That's the exiting bit.
So whenever I feel like working on any of them, I pick up a particular box and just get on with it.

But what I am not very good at is "filing" it all back, when I finish a project.
And so my room sometimes ends up being a chaos, no space to create.
Action is needed....

That's better!

I like this storage system by Really Useful Storage Boxes .

And they come in so many different sizes.

The threads are stored in ArtBin boxes, 
for which DH made me a simple cabinet, so the boxes can be used as draws.

I love my Horn sewing machine cabinet, it has been with me many years.
I keep it permanently open, but when I need some desk space, 
I just push the machine down and put a wooden board across the top.

And at last I got around to allocating a box for small fabric scraps for applique.

For a tiny room I have a lot of storage here.
I just need to keep it tidy!

P.S. If you have tried to leave a comment on my blog in the last couple of days and did not managed to do it, or have not received an answer from me, I apologise. It was because I was "fiddling" with the system and managed to mess it up! ūüėē All back to normal now (I hope).

  1. Great room and storage boxes. Funny how quickly our rooms get cluttered with projects, all part of our quilting journey.

  2. here I am looking at your room so tidy and sighing!

  3. Oh, love those fabric boxes!!!! Your sewing room looks a cozy place.

  4. Great to see your sewing room. I love the fact that you have a few projects on the go all ready to pick up again when the fancy takes you. Also the photo of your blog diaries. Such a good idea. My reverse applique hare is on hold as we are having a workshop in the new year to work on backgrounds for our meadow stitching. I am working on a Gail Pan Xmas embroidery and using reverse applique for the panels.

  5. That is sooo organised and looks very inviting to escape to your favourite things.

  6. Such a perfectly organised room - just the way it has to be when space is short. And lots of light too. Love those storage boxes - such a brilliant range of sizes. xx
