Sewing room update

A week has passed and I'm getting closer to a functioning sewing room!

Yesterday my mom helped me install foam insulation for my design wall.  I'll be covering this in felt, but the insulation makes it easy to pin (if needed). Nearly the entire wall is covered!  I can't wait to use it!

I decided to combine functions in my antique dresser.  Fabric yardage will go in the drawers and I made an ironing board topper.  There are 6 layers of batting and then a covering of reflective fabric. Managing large hunks of fabric will be much easier!

Most of my fabric is organized (small miracle).  I started folding my fat quarters into a standard method last night.  It's amazing how much easier it is to view fabric when it is all the same.  When one cut is folded this way and another folded that way, I don't seem to consider them as something to use?  I seem to remember, "oh, I bought that at Expo last year" and not, "that's a good blue".   Going forward, I hope to re-fold all new fabric to match my stash right away when it enters the sewing room.  We'll see how that goes!

With just a little more work, I can start sewing soon.  One problem-- I haven't found my thread or other notions!!  They better turn up soon!
