Just In Case You Are Interested.....

I am cleaning out things and look what i found :)
Yup, it is a brand new, extra copy of "The Crochet Stitch Bible".  New, Never Used and I'm selling it.  It is an excellent reference book, hard cover, spiral bound.  I've had my own copy for many years and can personally vouch for its goodness :)

I also just put up a lot of 30 pieces of cross stitch fabric.  How did i wind up with that?  One can only guess... but this is perfect for holiday ornaments, cross-stitch card pictures, oh... i am sure you can think of dozens of uses.  

both are at my etsy supply shop...

TALK TO ME OF STORAGE...............

      i tore my studio apart.


Talk to me of storage.........PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

i now have an extra room (other than my Studio Treehouse, which i totally outgrew within a year)... so now I have a room for inventory and a room to work in (my Studio).    Here are some pics of the 'inventory room' and the Studio (Treehouse) before being cleaned/sorted/finished/figured out.

These are the pics of the New Inventory Room - not complete, still a mess, not sorted through etc..


These are the pics of the cleaned out Studio - not complete, still a mess, not sorted through etc..


oh...and my wall o' yarn... which will remain where it is because it is just so beautiful to look at up against the rock wall.

I will be using my studio for the computer, books, shipping, photographing and creating/finishing pieces.   In the Inventory Room i have all my rovings, yarns, spinning, etc sorted by colour in cubes... it is the best way for me... it is how i work....When i work on a lot of my pieces i always wind up with small balls of leftover yarns... in fact, i have so many small balls of leftover yarns that they need their own set of cubes sorted by colour!!!!!!

what do you do with those small balls of leftover yarns?  i don't mean, what do you make with them.... i tend to use up even small balls...... i mean how do you store them??? 

The Inventory Room will have floor to ceiling cubes when finished and each cube will hold a different colour... all the blacks together, all the greys together, all the oranges together, etc.  This works fine for full or semi-full skeins or balls, they all fit nicely in there and are easy to retrieve or go through.   

So how do i store the small balls so that I actually can see them and use them?   Suggestions appreciated.
