The filled wardrobe


I have to do this entry early . . . before I'm really awake. Or else it wouldn't happen. You see I can't stand a messy house. (I can't believe I am sharing this picture) I always want everything in it's place. That's probably why I never taught my two kids to clean house, I wanted it done my way and now.

So yesterday it was time to fill the wardrobe BT had refinished for me. This meant getting all the quilt boxes out of our closet. This is one big closet, it's about 24 feet wide and 8 feet deep. So I pulled everything out! Here's proof.




It took me most of the day to sort through what I wanted to keep, take off for donations or burn. Trust me, no quilts were involved in the disposal. When I finished I had 26 quilts in the wardrobe. The drawer on the bottom has various unfinished quilts and quilt blocks in it.

Time to run now . . . I have quilts to make, there are unfilled spaces!!

Folding quilts is hard work. I can certainly attest to that. But they sure are lovely when they are stacked together like that, arent they?

I'm the same, I like everything organized my way. I thing sometimes I let things slide just so I can reorganize it again! The wardrobe looks great with all the beautiful quilts inside!
Be well ~Andrea~

I love the way the quilts look in the wardrobe. I have a lot of mine in an antique china cabinet and I love that too. Organizing and sorting makes me feel at peace - is that weird? And I love those shoes! What's the name of that place and where is it? blessings, marlene

Look how straight and perfect!

Your neat-freakness makes me laugh, but I'm totally with you!

Too bad nobody else at my house is...
