Okay, I know it's Thursday, not Wednesday, but due to some technical problems I wasn't able to get this post out yesterday.
While I had plans to accomplish lots yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon and evening trying to connect a wireless printer to my laptop - without success, I might add. I know you're thinking that this is a fairly simple thing to do - and it is if you are using a Mac and only want to add the printer to the Mac side of things. The complication arises when you're using Parallels to run Windows on your Mac and you're trying to hook up a new Canon copier to the Windows side of things - not quite as easy. Needless to say, hours were sucked up by myself and hubby trying everything we could to get this new printer to work on the Windows side. If you have any suggestions on how to connect a Canon MG5220 wireless printer through Parallels, send me an email. We'll be trying some other ideas perhaps tomorrow once we've calmed down a bit!
I'm still working on the studio clean-up and am almost done. The storage in the sauna is now completely done and full - unless I can find some way to squeeze in a little more fabric (hanging from the rafters maybe?).
|Panels, novelty fabrics and collections|
|More novelty fabrics with cat and dog fabrics to the right|
|Black and whites and more novelty fabrics (yes, I have lots of these)|
|Part of the batiks sorted by colour|
|Batiks on the bottom and holiday fabrics, |
as well as some landscape fabrics on the top
I'm now working on my "colour wall". I've finished the whites, creams and yellows and hope to finish up the rest of the colours in the next day or so.
Although this has been a lengthy process, I think it has been worth it. Now all of the various types of fabrics have their own homes and I found some treasures that I had forgotten all about. Rediscovering these fabrics has given me fresh pattern design inspirations. So it was definitely not a waste of time to sort out my fabrics. Now I just have to try to keep them organized this way...
Do you organize the fabrics in your quilt studio, and if so, into what categories? I'd love to hear about your fabric stash:)
