KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Before I show you pictures of my cleaned up room, I will show you all the things I found that were "lost" in there. These are fabric post cards made by my friend Terry who you read about in yesterday's post. I bid on them at our annual auction a few years ago. I love them and will never send them out, so glad I found them.
Remember these? I think RJR was the maker of the Smithsonian Institute fabric line. For a time when you purchased the fabric you got one of these labels. I don't remember how long ago that was....
A trapunto card my sister in law, Angie made circa 1996. Her first attempt and I am so glad I found this!
Two little containers that were my grandmother's made in Japan. I use them for safety pins and my snips.
A rusty needle with an interesting story....I was sewing in bed and some how the needle was in there....it ended up in my arm while I was asleep....surgery was required to get it out! That is a #11 straw needle people! The xray technician was vey surprised and couldn't quite understand sewing in bed.
I packed up 9 large trash bags in my car and took them to the thrift store.
I cleaned this out and put all the pretty pin cushions in there......
I love this cute little thing, I think it was for candy or some kind of dessert. Now it holds my threads and some other odds and ends......
Here is a view from the door. My design wall is easier to use now.....
My scrap bins are easier to get to and hopefully I will use them more often.....I still need to paint the shelf.
My fabric all nicely stacked...it will never stay that way, but one can hope.
I have the tables this way so I can move them together when I machine quilt. It gives me a much larger space to put the quilt on. It looks weird but it works.
Just to keep it real there is a pile of stuff behind the door.....it is all to be donated to my guilds. It feels great! I am only worried now that I will have no idea where I put everything!
