This is the sewing room closet where all my casual knock around home clothes used to hang - jeans, shorts, tank tops, flannel shirts, etc. I've always thought of this as the "dark hole" because it's under the stairs and thus very little to no light penetrates the depths. Long ago I usurped the hanging space at regular height - this is where my drawer stacks of strips, squares, etc. live. Pillow forms and long ago projects - partially done needle point and cross stitch, partially done rag baskets, etc. - live in the back depths. Now I have the perfect place to hang sets of blocks and more while they wait for completion. Right now there are five sets hanging there, as well as three tops waiting for borders to be finished and three stitcheries waiting for something to happen to them. These were in the drawers in my center island - hanging them here is much better storage. I saved a bunch of the skirt and slacks hangers just for this use - they worked just perfectly!

This is post number 488 - only 12 posts after this one to reach 500. If I continue to be this chatty in my retirement I'll reach that by the end of this week LOL! Must be something about spending all day home alone . . . . do you think so?
