Folding like a fiend

I've gotten the itch to clean and organize this month.  Specifically, my sewing space.  I use shoe organizer cubbies to hold my fabric, and my stash has outgrown the two cubby units dedicated to it. (This is in addition to a bin of solids and a suitcase of multicolor fabric.)  So, I need a third unit.

My sewing studio is in the basement and it is too cold to spend hours folding and organizing fabric.  So, my husband graciously agreed to bring the cubbies upstairs.  I've been spending many late nights watching programs and folding fabric.

I love gazing at this:

But this is how I usually get by:

So...I know how I'll be spending the next few nights.

Here's hoping that your new year is off to an organized start.

Wow, that's wonderfully organised - like having your own shop! Good luck with the rest, I hope there's lots of good things to watch on telly!

Pretty stacks! Sounds like some very enjoyable evenings folding and fun TV watching.

I love gazing at that pic too. I have almost zero desire to organize. So I'll live vicariously through you. :)

I hope you get your pretties out in the open. They get lonely in the basement. :)

This is such an awesome idea!! I really need to figure out how to organize and store my fabric and I never thought of shoe racks! Your looks very pretty. :)

Drool!
I have been channeling you lately I think. I've been designing quilts in meetings in lieu of daydreaming.

oh, I always forget to sign things. That was me drooling and daydreaming (often at the same time I guess)

I had that same "itch" but my rainbow stacks don't look nearly as neat and cute as yours! :-) Doesn't you feel so much new inspiration when your fabric is tidied up?

OOh, that typo hurt my ears!! "Don't you feel......" is what I meant. I know you know that but, just for the record-LOL!!

I'm obsessively organizing. Which will probably involve destashing as well...
