The Storage Space Blues

I recently installed a behind-the-door storage rack to hold stabilizers and other oddball things that end up rolling around my studio... and that experience led me to creating this little Quilter's  Fable for you (based on one of my favorite children's book, If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Joffe Numeroff:

If you give a quilter a studio, she's going to want to create storage space.

And to create storage space, she'll want to go to The Container Store.

At the Container Store, she'll buy some Elfa storage equipment.

 To assemble the new storage equipment, she'll need to get out the power tools.

 When she gets out the power tools, she'll assemble all of the storage equipment and be delighted with her new space.

 Once she has more storage space, she's going to want to buy more fabric and supplies to put in it.

Once she has more fabric and supplies, she'll discover that the storage space is full.

And when she discovers that the storage space is full,

She's going to want a bigger studio.

  6. So delightfully true.

  7. There's a shop called The Container Store??!! And you didn't take me there????
    And you know how much this fable is my current life story!

  8. Painfully true! We never have enough storage for all the fun WIP we have going on! Thanks for a bright spot in the day!
