There's a bug in my coffee

Hiya.  I'm sitting here on this beautiful morning tending this
 
 
 
because of this.
This was unexpected and rushing around early this morning to move more items and prepare, has left me with no idea where anything is.  I've run out of rooms to stuff with other room's things!  If this project was worked on every day it would have been done and the mess lived with for a short time.  You have to wait for contractors as you all know and some weeks you don't see them at all.  I just want it over.
I want to show you what I did with my fat quarters and larger pieces that were all over the place. 
 The thicker foam core board that is used for mounting was in my way, but I had an idea.  An old chest of drawers now holds all the fabric neatly. 
 
 
 
I cut the foam to fit the drawers as dividers just a hair longer than needed.  They're snug and in place.  Cheap solution to not having dividers without needing any tools except for a utility knife.
 
 
I also strung more beans.  Here is the new one above the first, and look how much they shrunk.
 
Your bean watch close-up, day 4.

 
Not taking long at all.  I've seen strands for sale that are light in color which is what I prefer, but these will be dark.  I've looked locally for yellow wax beans but haven't found any. 
 
So now I will get the bug out of my coffee with my dirty ashed fingers.  I'm so tired I don't really care.  The fire's heat has taken the hair off my legs, softened my Crocs, and quite possible melted my contact to my eye.
 
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Hi Marly,
I know you will be doing a happy dance when everything finally gets done! What a BRILLIANT IDEA for using your foam core board as drawer dividers!! Love all the drawers pulled out to view all your lovely fabrics!
Also love the leather britches! My problem is that everyone here loves green beans too much! I would have to hide them!
Heart Hugs~

Love your fabric storage method. Makes me want to rearrange my craft room sometime soon and try some new storage options.

Take Care .... Sandy

What a great idea for storing fabric! Remodeling does drive a person crazy. I strongly recommend a trip to Alaska while it is being done!(That is what we did)

Oh Marly! Please, no melted contacts, YIKES!! Sleep well tonight!

Just love your fabric storage - if that was mine, I would just keep opening it up and looking at it, over and over! It looks so beautiful and neat and colourful and co-ordinated. xCathy

Wow, your fabrics look so pretty in your chest of drawers! Great idea on the foam board too. Hope you haven't melted a contact to your eye. Yikes! Love the string beans!

I clicked on thinking I'd be reading about another great project, read about your reno, a bug in your coffee and ended up getting a tip on how to remove my leg hair without wax or razor. Great post!

It's great to see that through it all, you're still organized in some areas. Your pieces of material are so pretty and colorful.
As you are showing pictures of the fire, I'm thinking "smores".
I'm thinking, too, that you should be writing a book or books like Erma Bombeck did. I love your sense of humor.
I've been through remodeling and additions to my home. I know what you're going through. It won't last forever and you'll enjoy the finished project..
Happy days, in the good old summertime.

Love your fabric storage idea! Can't believe you're burning that "good" wood!

Melody said...

Oooh, don't sit so close to the fire... LOL. Your house will be so beautiful when it's done. I love the pictures you have posted of it. Your fabric is so lovely and organized.

Take care.
