Re-organizing - Kinda

I'm trying to get my studio a little more organized.  I can't find things and when I do, I have 14 of them.  Gah!  So Alan and I went to the home store and purchased some white pegboard.  Those sheets are 4'X8'.  We had them cut it in half longways and now I have 16' of usable storage area on my walls.  My studio is 16'X15' so I have a lot of usable wall space.  And now I've used it all.  LOL.  I'm trying to get stuff off my tables and onto the pegboard wall.  So I'm trying things out in different locations on the wall and trying to make it logical; you know, embroidery stuff by the embroidery machine, sewing stuff by the sewing machine.  Here's a few pictures:
The table on the left houses my serger and coverstitch machine.  Some of my embroidery/sewing threads are on the shelves above along with stabilizers.  You can see a good part of the pegboard too.  The table on the right houses my Babylock Ellegante which I use for sewing 90% of the time.  That little bit of green showing in the lower right corner is my cutting table sticking out.  The brown blob in the lower left is my little love seat where I sit to do handwork.
My computer is on the right along with my Ellisimo and lots of stabilizers and a Madeira thread chest.  My goal to get a lot of stuff off my tables is still to be realized.  LOL.  I'm a messy organized sewist.  That makes sense, right?
And here is my unlovely ironing station.  Tee hee.  I really think I have too much stuff.  Nah...
And this "oh so lovely" 3 drawer lateral filing cabinet houses my pattern collection.  I was looking on Craig's list one day and saw one of our local furniture rental businesses had 2 of these for $150.00.  I purchased both.  Turns out they were used the US Census Bureau when they were in town.

My room isn't pretty; it's more functional.  Someday I'll have pretty.  

That's all I have for today.  Later!


  1. Hey - function beats pretty every time!

    1. I agree, but its nice to dream. LOL
