My new cabinets were delivered and installed yesterday! I am thrilled with them... but daunted as well, for before me lies the task of refolding all my fabric, storing it by color, and figuring what to do with all the fabric that won't fit in the new shelves.
What's really funny is that the folks who built the cabinets are the husband and sons of a quilting friend. She told me her husband doesn't think I can fill all those shelves... boy has he got a lot to learn. He has no concept of the amount of fabric I own.
I JUST started on the browns, tans and creams. I have done about 1/4th of a bin and filled about 1/4th of a shelf. At this rate I will fill the shelves and still have about 10 bins left over. sigh.... but it will all be more accessible and controllable... I hope.
Not to mention the fact that I can cycle out what I don't really love and sell the unloved fabric at a huge stash reduction sale next year.
I am getting the tile fixed on my countertops today from when I got my new stove installed... and I get to pick out paint color for the living room later today. Maybe Friday we will have the painter return to do the work. One room at a time is all I can afford right now.
Oh, and my dog hates the new floor... she can barely walk on it, poor thing.... all the slipping and sliding... and she can't sneak around any more cuz her claws click and clack on the laminate. Poor old pup... sometimes she just stands outside the door and looks pitifully at me, torn between wanting to come in and not wanting to walk on the floors.
Now all I need is, I don't know... TIME to actually SEW???
