I guess we all find places for our stashes, depending on what's available, what is convenient, maybe even some place that won't get discovered by someone else! I wasn't a quilter when I moved into this house, which has a very nice linen closet. The door that you see below opens into the hallway near the bedrooms, and on the back side of the linen closet, a door opens into the laundry room. Perfect for placing clean linens into from the laundry room, and accessing them from the other side.
But, who really needs a linen closet!!??!! I found places in the bedrooms to stash the extra folded sheets and towels and blankets. So the linen closet has become a fabric closet. And it works really nicely. The only problem is that it's quite dark inside. This hallway isn't very bright either.
So I bought this head lamp on Amazon, and it makes all the difference! I can put it on my head and see really well into the fabric stacks. The light can be slanted up or down, and it can even blink. I know, a blinking light isn't very helpful when choosing fabrics! (And neither is the red light, which is also available on this head lamp!)
Isn't this quite dorky looking?! Do I look really weird wearing it? Of course, I do!!! But do I care?No! Not as long as I can see into my fabric closet.
