Long story short, it has taken that long to recover from heavy water damage in the downstairs of our home. This weekend was the last steps we needed to take to get things livable again and I was so excited as I organized my stash in the back room, I started making rhymes in my head. By the time I had things back in shape I hit the computer and wrote my poem, to the tune of "The Night before Christmas". This shows some of what I did and pics of my fabric storage area.
Twas the Day before New Years...

Great take on the poem. I'm envious of your organizational skills. Thank you for sharing.

Happy New Year!

Hard to say which is more impressive, the very clever poem or the perfectly organized stash. Way to go! It must feel great to start a new year on such a positive note.

I totally agree with Maia as to which is impressive. Loved the poem (TFS!), and the organizational skills, Wow! Annette

Thank you so much. What you see for the most part is a "back room" I call the fabric room where I have those big Home Depot storage shelves filled with fabrics and books. The white shelf with all the antique canning jars is in the actual sewing room. Left to organize is my "sewing closet" the big closet that connects the two spaces. I was going to hit that today but the flu bug got the best of me. It will have to wait until next weekend.Thanks for all the compliments.

So much fun Bunny, a great remix of the famed poem.
Do you have Martha Stewart furniture in your sewing room?
Love the organization of fabrics.

Want to come work in my sewing room for a night????

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.
