This is the area that I call my "Sewing Cabinet". I originally had planned to store my AccuQuilt GO cutter and the dies here. Inside the large door, are a basket and a decorative milk can filled with scraps of fabric. I never know how large or small a piece should be to be eligible for saving. What do you save and what do you toss? I'm sure that the area inside this door could be put to better use.
This is the front window area. As you can see there are piles of fabric to be put away. The black photo boxes on the shelf are full of fat quarters and other supplies such as binding, zippers, and rick-rack. I have already purchased clear plastic storage boxes to replace these. The photo boxes were a good idea at the time, but I can't see what I have. I think the clear boxes will be a great improvement.
This is what I call the "buffet area". This surface was originally intended to be used as a pressing area - thus the iron. But as you can see, there's no room for ironing. The fabric on the shelves used to be neatly folded and stacked, but that has gone by the wayside also. Inside the doors of the buffet are shelves loaded with boxes, baskets and dishpans of God-knows-what. I am a pack rat for sure, and live in fear that if I throw something out, that surely I will need it and not have it.
