Getting Organized

I feel a bit of a tug to get my sewing space organized.  But if I’m being honest, I’d much rather sew!  I know I’m not alone.

I’ve had some things from Ikea for several months that will help slightly in the organization, and last weekend I finally decided that I was going to use them and asked the hubby to install them for me.  Without much further ado…


Bars where I can hang some tools and rulers. The white bucket is my garbage scrap pail.
My hubby mounted that iron holder a few months ago – I love it!



‘Odds’ & ‘Ends’ – jars for scraps & selvedges



Not a fantastic picture, but these are magnetic tins that I’ve put pins & other random stuff in. It’s mounted just to the right of my machine within easy reach.

Now, if I could just figure out how to effectively sort, organize & store my fabric.  That’s a HUGE WIP!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
