Part ?-Reclaiming Space and Sorting

Here we are on Monday---I feel like I'm moving in slow motion or in circles in this phase of the remodel.  Last Friday the flooring went in, and I have some of the cubbies in place.

Bill commented that the remodel was finished---LOL! I said, we'll maybe it's half finished! LOL! I guess he does not know this is the difficult part---putting everything back and finding a space for it.

The new cabinets are arriving on Wednesday which will be so helpful as I'm finding it difficult to sort and organize threads, rulers, cutters and notions with out the cabinets here---so now I'm just dealing with fabric.  Too much fabric!

Here are a few photos of what the room looks like now. Flooring in place. Waiting on blinds, waiting of cabinets.  Yes, I guess the grunge work is done. Even the windows and screens are clean! :o) Reorganizing is fun, and then not fun! Depending on how much time I debate keeping something, and if I do, where shall it go.

 Cubbies in one of the old closet spaces. Waiting for cloth containers to arrive to store scraps.
 I decided to keep the lateral file. Oh, thank goodness! I need it for patterns and embroidery disks. I hope to keep the space under the ironing table to store my Featherweight.  Smaller expandable cutting table will be near the other window.  I'm not sure about the design wall yet as I'm considering putting up smaller design walls behind the machine cabinets and on the wall behind the ironing table and move the ironing table closer to the windows. 
 This corner and down the wall to the right await the new sewing machine cabinets. Wednesday.
 Some of the give away stuff. Primer I didn't need to be returned.  The pile will be much larger tonight.
The fabric cubbies in the old closet space. I ordered a few more cubbies for up top to hold more fabric. The embroidery stabilizer holder is on the floor for now until Bill gets it hung on the back of the door. Lots of things to be rehung.

Progress is slow----but, we are getting there. I love the new paint color and the floor is so nice! It's laminate, but much quieter than expected. The installer told me they have a newer foam under pad now that really helps with the noise factor and warmth.

This is such a peaceful place. I do love the floors and wall color. You can never go wrong with cubbies either. I just know you're going to love this space more and more! Lucky you!!

Hi Angie,
Your room is really shaping up and looking wonderful. I love your floor, it is absolutely beautiful. Sorting through everything is going to be a job, but it will be so rewarding when you are finished. The only problem that I see, is that it will be so lovely that you may not want to start a project and mess it up, LOL.
Keep Smiling.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
