Re-organising

I have inherited another room since my son left home apart from his bedroom. His living room has really just been a corridor to my studio for months and I was tripping over myself in my studio. I have also been fortunate to win a Horn Craft Cabinet which was being wasted as there was nowhere but my main living room to have it opened up. It is only a small room but seemed such a shame to waste it. First to go was the the three piece lounge suit and coffee table so a blank canvas to work with.

So for the last week we have been shifting stuff around. I think this new room will be my embellishing studio and the original one can stay as the quilting one. I know that they cross over all the time but now I have somewhere for my embellisher and also the beads all in one spot. I think a design wall might be needed too fairly soon and some decent lighting.

I have however come to the conclusion that I HAVE ENOUGH BEADS!! Seeing them all like this together has made this statement fairly self explanatory don't you think? The top containers are two deep as well.

OOOH! That collection is marvelous!

I have my tables up the same way, tho I'm not totally happy with everything shoved up against the wall.

Staying tuned!

Yeah I totally agree you have enough beads to sink a ship. I guess you has a load of projects in mind. I love the new room and would like to see a picture of the quilt that is featured in the corner of the room, it looks like a shoo fly block. thanks

You have enough beads if you THINK you have enough beads. As soon as you think you need more, you need more. At least they are beautifully organised and accessible, ready for when you need them.

If I ever get into beading I will be in deeeep trouble.......
