Sorting has started

I got the fabric on the shelves at least folded all about the same size. Now I am sorting by color. This is the shelves above my computer. They are sorted but need to move onto the next wall of shelves.
These are all folded the same size, but the sorting needs to happen. I did get the cutting table cleaned off. It was piled 12 inches deep. So maybe some work could be done there now.
This is the mess I really need to address next. As I sorted and folded the fabrics I tossed out the smaller pieces to be put into a basket. I uncovered the basket and now I need to place all the scraps into this basket for quick use. You can see the basket there in the picture.
I have some boxes of odds and ends of sewing supplies. Bias tape, old metal embroidery hoops, and cheap fabric hearts cut out to use on canvas bags. These boxes have buttons and cheap thread and straight pins by the bottle full. All this is going to the Goodwill on Monday. I thought about a nursing home, but some of it is so old it might be for a collector or  someone who buys stuff for hoarders. LOL  That is what I am trying to get away from doing. These boxes were given to me and some of the stuff is from the 40's and 50's. I have enough of my own stuff.

I worked on this room instead of sewing. I needed a cleaned off space to press some fabric so first things first. Rained most of the day. Chris

You are making a lot of progress. My cutting table is pile 12" deep too.
I'm glad we finally got some rain. It sounds like it might be snow next weekend.
