    Love your new closet it looks fabulous i have one that is stuufed to the gills with sewing stuff so would not be able to do what you did inlessI got rid of a lot of fabric therein lies my problem I am a self confessed fabric junkie is there hope for me your fan Kathy

    1. Hahaha. Oh geeze. I can relate. I did get rid of some fabric, because I just had to convince myself that the space was worth more than the projects that were piling up and I had to get real with myself about what I was really going to tackle. But it was sooooo hard. I ended up giving my fabric donation to a teen girl’s club for at risk girls. One of the classes they can take there is sewing so it made me feel super good about getting rid of it. Good luck. The struggle is real!
