I have been quilting this morning in my small sewing room (9 feet by ten feet), and I was appreciating the best two things in here, so I thought I would pass them on. The first is lighting over my ironing board, which I am lucky enough to be able to leave up. The light dangles down from the ceiling, so I can see everything I am ironing or working on. The second is the big board thing that I bought to fit over my ironing board. It makes my ironing board a rectangle, 20 inches by 60 inches. (I bought this at a quilt show. My husband immediately told me he could have made me one, but this way I already have it and he didn't need to make it. )
Since I don't have room for any kind of craft table or anything, these two additions give me a wonderful work space.
I just thought if anyone else out there had limited space, they might find my information helpful. Now that I think about it, the portable design wall I made is great too. Couldn't do without it....
