Craft Corner Condemned

 
For years the Inspector General has been giving Craft Corner failing marks. This year, right before the holidays the Inspector General declared Craft Corner condemned and a disaster area. I cannot show you pictures due to potential liability. But the Inspector General (my husband) stated that Craft Corner (my corner of the laundry room) was a fire hazard and exhibited signs of a hoarder.
Clean-up was to start immediately after the first of the year.
Thus, last weekend was spent knee deep in wool.
 
I can show you after pictures :)
 
 
A shelf of cutter quilts, full size tickings, coverlets and wool blankets.

 
Wools organized by color.

 
I have realized that I probably don't need to buy any wool for a long, long time.
I'll try not to.... but I just might ;)
 
The Inspector General stopped by and declared Craft Corner 10% complete.
I have a loooong way to go...
Next up velvets and flannels.
 
Needless to say not much sewing getting done here.
But I did do a bit... 

 
Last Christmas I received a gift certificate to JJ Stitches from a dear friend. I bought this lovely "Snowy Days" kit and rediscovered it when trying to pull together all my wools.
One block down and 5 more to go...  
I wonder what other treasures I might unearth :)
 
 "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Christ who strengthens me. Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles."
~Philippians 4:12-14
 
Blessings, Patti

I had mine all shelved, then my daughter moved back in and took the room, so I had to box it up. This time I got some clear plastic and tried to keep like colors together so I can find things, but still a pain, I love having it out where I can see it.

"Inspector General" caught my attention right away:). I was curious. I wondered "Is there such a person" :)I Love how you have corraled your wools in little cubbies, and I LoVe the colors too. I'm drooling! Now I am inspired to get into my room & organize too.
I won 't even allow my "GI" even in there :)
