THEN AND NOW - FABRIC OVERLOAD

At the beginning of April I was entrusted by a dear friend to disperse her lifetime of quilting treasures which came my way enclosed in a 7' x 7' moving pod.  Yup, you read that right a 7' x 7' pod....filled!!
This was a 24-7 task which included unpacking, sorting, measuring and organizing, and finding homes for everything.  The entire upstairs of our home was nearly wall to wall fabric.  
Every surface was covered.
 Bins filled with fabrics covered the floors.
This is the look today.....my studio area has only 1 bin left...and the stacking shelves on this side of the guest room contain far less fabric.
 Other areas like this still have more than what meets the eye at first glance...but I'm getting there.  So I'm coming out of my self-imposed hibernation and hopefully new work will begin to appear back on this blog!  Stay tuned.....

I had almost started to worry that something else had also entered your life to keep you so quiet. Or, less of a worry, maybe that you had broken away for a mini-vacation. :-) Good to "hear" from you again and that you have made real progress on your labor of love.

All I can say is that you are a saint to have taken this task on, and also very lucky to have room in your home to do it. It must be very gratifying to be able to take this task on. You are blessed.

Wow! Good job! There is light at the end of that long tunnel! Looking forward to seeing what you will create, now that you have a bit of time--and space!
