That's part of one bin. I actually did this for all 15 bins plus the floor and shelf stuff. The next step would have been to then sort the fabrics into categories and return them to bins. Instead--I called a sewing friend, asked her to grab a couple more sewing people, and invited them over for a stash dive. The more they took home, the less I had to put away. Win-win all around. I rearranged the room a bit, moved in some more shelves, and voila!
Look down--there's a FLOOR in this room. I hadn't see that for quite some time.
And yes--that's a coffin for a bookshelf. We had asked a friend to make a coffin for the Halloween trail. Never ask a carpenter to make a prop--he made such a nice one that we thought it would be a shame to leave it outside (there's not much storage space inside at the Museum) so we made it into a bookshelf.
There is a downside to having a sewing room this neat. I was celebrating having this onerous task done by doing some needed re-working to a blouse I made a couple of years ago. Well, when one threads a sewing machine, it's wise to do a small sample of stitching just to be sure that everything is sewing properly. Normally I just grab a piece of whatever is lying nearest on the floor. But at this point THERE WASN'T A DARN SCRAP OF FABRIC ANYWHERE! I had to get up and go to the bin labeled "misc. cottons" and dig something out. I know, I know. Life is hard.
Pictures of a clean room not really being that exciting, here are a couple more random ones. First, one of Bob's latest models. The cool thing here is not so much the dinosaur but the trees.
That's the inside of pine cones after the squirrels have finished chewing on them, topped with dried chive blossoms. Very Jurassic, don't you think?
And finally--the joys of an unmade bed.
Which is looking pretty good to me as well. Think I'll go join him.
