Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am in love with that Storybook Needle Case. Everything else is great, too! Such cute ideas.

My Sewing Room needs the most organization.

"Whole House" I was in a car accident 3 years ago and after 5 surgeries I still can't walk without assist, LOL! My hubby has been taking care of me and the house !

My sewing/sitting room needs the most in the way of organization. I live in a small house so every square inch needs to count. Still working on that.

Although is is not a room technically, it is my attached garage that needs the most organization.

My sewing room that I can't sew in because I can barely walk through the rooms. It is disorganized, crowded and a hardly functional. I need to sew just for sanity's sake. Oh how much joy I would have if I were productive again.

My garage needs the most organization! We are working on it now and are determined to get my husband's car in there!

My bedroom needs the most organizing.

EVERY ROOM! We homeschool our 5 kids and books supplies toys, clothes all of it are in a mess of chaotic disorganization. We also travel and craft often so we could use any HELP we can get!

Very good ideas

Such great ideas for scraps. Thank you.
