Glass shelves seem like a good idea.  They'll never sag!  What a great cabinet!

Probably wouldn't notice, (they are in the bottom cabinet out of view)  I have been collecting for about 10 years thinking that when I retired I couldn't just buy (that was my excuse anyway)  Now retired and still buying!  LOL 

 The bottom shelf of the cabinet is all backing fabrics -- 5 yards or more,   All of the fabrics are at least one yard -- most 2 to 4 yards.    Now I need to find something for the border on my MQ5......maybe another trip to lqs?   : - )

By the way, they actually helped us load the cabinet in my van.  I asked if I could leave my phone number in case they get rid of another one!   They smiled and said, just keep coming back -- so I think I will.  Could use one more.  I'd put the fat quarters on display and use the closed bottom parts for all the batting, stabilizers, interfacing, etc.

They are leaded glass as they had heavy items on display in the store.   Still can't believe my good fortune and my daughter for spying it!

Ms MoomMist - I totally cleaned up all by myself!

 

Kim

Good for you, Kim! It is really lovely. After I quit selling real estate, I took up cleaning for a couple of years, the money was much better lol! I always felt good about leaving others home pretty like yours. I'm a slob basically, not dirty just cluttered. DH is a collector and a one who has (as an only child and grandchild) kept all his grandmother's, mom's, dad's and deceased wife's memorabilia. So, when we got married it all came here. My first husband would have had a fit. He use to cringe to hang a picture, so it was easy to clean back 20 years ago. Now, I'm lucky if I can get the floors swept after cooking one meal. Hired a "Merry Maid" once and when I saw her cleaning on day when we came home early from my treatment, I decided that I was paying her too much to clean the glass with a spritz of Windex on a paper towel and 2" of  water in a bucket to wipe up 2 little room so let her go. DH now does the vacuuming, laundry (downstairs), and dishes, I do the cooking, floors and bathroom. It is a chore for me to walk from one room to another hauling 45' of oxygen tubes, so I do as little as possible to get through the day and quilt or craft for about an hour.

You do a wonderful job!

xoxoxo,

Hey Ms. MoomMist - I'm so sorry to hear that you have to haul oxygen tubes around.  So very nice that you have a husband who will do some cleaning in your home.  Best wishes with your quilting and crafting!  Do you have some photos of your work in the gallery on the QCA website?

Hi Linda, Somewhere on this thread the ladies of knowledge were telling how they folded their fabric on a 6" x 24" ruler and then pulled the ruler out and fold the fabric in half.  I spent 2 whole days wrapping and folding!  I used a 5" ruler so I could fit one more stack, and then used a 4" ruler for my fat quarters.

You could send me those lovely creams and whites.  I don't have nearly enough of those.   But I notice a significant lack of purples and greens. What's up with that......
