This is a shot of my to do container. Most of the projects in the container are 100% kitted up but some still need a few threads or maybe the fabric.
This is a top view of the container. Guess I've got a few projects to get started, huh.
Here is a kitted project from the to do container.
Here's a shot of my threads. I have at least one of every DMC color and I'm starting on some of the specialty threads now.
This is a shot of the threads I've pulled out for the Monopoly Board. I use bags similar to Floss-A-Way, but these have 2 holes in the bottom of the bag instead of 1 in the top. I've cut some index cards to fit the bags exactly (makes them stand up in the boxes better) and printed labels with the color number which I put on both sides of the bag.
I keep the skein of thread I'm using on one side of the index card...
and any extras I have of that color are stored on the back side of the card.
Here's where I keep my charts. Have I mentioned before that everyone says I'm really anal about how things are kept? I think this will prove it to everyone. I keep all my charts in notebooks in alphabetical order. Once I have enough charts from one designer to fill a notebook of its own, out they come and go to their new home. Here's the first half...
and here's the second half.
These are waiting to be filed.
Here's my armoire. This is where I keep my fabrics and everything that hasn't got a home yet. The right side of the armoire is where I hang my bulk fabric.
and the drawers on the left side hold small cuts, completed projects that haven't been finished yet, and all those little accessories that have no other place to call home yet.
After taking these photos, I realize that I have some serious housekeeping to do. There are way too many charts on the floor waiting to be filed and several of the kitted projects need a few things before they are 100% kitted up. But I recently purchased Organized Expressions and I'm slowly getting my stash listed. Once I am done, a copy will go to the office with me for safekeeping. I know I'd never be able to come up with a list for the insurance company should anything happen to the house.
Alright now my skin is tough - do you think I'm gone over the top on stash storage? Does anyone see where I can make improvements?
