That's Neale's study through the sliding door.
It would be really unfortunate if any of the 3 older boys who have moved out wish to move back in - I can offer them floor space or a couch in the lounge room now! (I think we're safe!!)
Neale put up the shelving for me on Saturday/Sunday. After loading it up with my books it started to bend alarmingly, so Neale bought a couple more rails - much better. I was hoping to use the top shelf for all my pattern drafting/fashion design books - but it's pretty high and I'll need a ladder every-time I want to get a book down. I think I'll keep them in the bookcase in the lounge room - much easier
I want to buy another shelving unit to store some material - but the one I'm after was not in stock at the store on Saturday. I've seen a 8 cube unit that I think will do the job - won't fit a great deal of material in it - but enough to get inspired etc. I'm wanting to put it where the door is on the left hand side of the room.
Sunday, I seemed to spend the day moving one pile of mess to another place - slowly getting it all under control - I'm currently reorganising my sewing cupboard in the kitchen. Only another 2 shelves to tidy up.
I've discovered I've got more fabric that I thought I had - good grief! Even though Neale took 5 big bags to the storage locker (years ago) , I seem to have replaced that since. I did visit the storage locker a little while ago - but have discovered the kids have been busy dumping their stuff in there and my bags are totally buried. It needs a major clean out - but I'm not doing it by myself.
My sewing pantry - not a very clear photo. The 2 top shelves still need sorting - lots of college folders and miscellaneous stuff! The third shelf, I've got containers of zips, bindings, eIastics, buttons etc. 4th shelf - more material. I've got my small Elna Stella and also my Brother embroidery machine on the 5th shelf with all my machine embroidery threads and stuff. Bottom shelf holds all my cottons and a box of ribbings.
