It all started in an effort to find a bag of fibres that I wanted to use.
Not in the basement storage, BUT...now, all the boxes harbouring this-and-that are duly marked and inventoried. One box for cross-stitch, one for recycled fabrics, one for unfinished quilting projects (that might someday resurface), one for odds and sods of wool, one for "curiosities"...for lack of a better explanation.
Upstairs the rooting continued and ended up in the purchase of a new shelf
Pier One...the 'goes anywhere shelf'. It tapers toward the top and was therefore the perfect size and shape to fit in a small hall area between the bedroom and bath. It now stores a vast array of magazines and books.
The hamper (which the shelf replaced) had to be emptied and sorted and redistributed into the linen closet, where happily a new space was found to house the vacuum cleaner. The contents of a small three tiered wire basket on wheels were dispersed and now live in a new little cabinet in the bathroom. The cart will be used in the studio.
Ah yes, in the "Studio" the shelves in the Ikea cupboard needed to be altered. Now heavier boxes housing fat quarters and wool can be pulled out like drawers and tipped as opposed to overhead deathly removal.
What was it I was looking for????
