After I was rested from my week to Asilomar and then a quick drive to LA for the weekend, I began to pack up my studio. I bought six 22 gallon turquoise latch top rubbermaid containers for transporting my California studio to my Wyoming studio. Can you believe that it only took one of them to contain all of my quilting cottons? I guess since I tend to make small quilts and dolls that I only buy fat quarters and rarely get yardage of anything unless it's for a specific project. A second container houses all of my fancy fabrics for doll-making. A third one is for threads, sewing machine accessories & notions plus about a third of my reference library. Finally a fourth one is for ribbons, beads, trims etc. I have yet to gather my patterns or UFOs. The sewing machine and embroidery module have their own special luggage and will fit in between seats or something. I may just get away with only five of these containers. What about you? If you had a week to pack up your studio how many containers could you get away with?
I've left a little space in the back for the dog crates (it's much easier to get them in and out of the car from the back gate). Thank goodness we found a type of car that has removable seats. Gotta love good quality used cars.
