    Three great improvements to my space

    First - the recessed are of desk for the machine - SOOO much more comfortable to sew at and better visibility!!!!

    Second - the 6" legs on the ironing/cutting table - no more backbreaking cutting sessions!!!

    Third, the design wall - a 5x6 wood frame with cross supports to keep it squared, with fuzzy flannel-like stuff from the home deco dept at Joanns. So much easier to keep the pieces organized!

    All from my DH who managed to get it all done in a few days before Christmas!

    Of course the room still has the piano and Aunt Grace's old desk and an easy chair because I can't find another place to put them, and the lighting isn't great, and not much storage, and the electrical needs upgrade so I don't blow a fuse when I plus in the space heater....but way better than when I started out quilting this time last year. HURRAH!

    Do you use the piano? If it is an upright and you don't use it, have someone help and turn it to the wall. The back can have pegboard put on for all your tools and you can store your batts on the keyboard against the wall. The batts are light and won't damage anything. We had to get rid of an old upright at my parents because no one wanted it but I am still sad about it. Your sewing room is looking good! A space of your own is awesome!

    Love your ironing and cutting table. The quilt on the design wall is very pretty.
    Peace is one of His greatest gifts.

    Doesn't it make a big difference when creating is more comfortable? What a great guy your husband is to fix this up for you like this. And as my sister is always saying, "baby steps."

    Looks awesome! My machine is recessed now too, thanks to my birthday present. Sure makes a huge difference. Thanks for posting!

    I love that table! I was just showing my husband and he said he could make me a table (his hobby is woodworking). He asked how your husband was able to recess the machine in so perfectly. Is there something he purchased that dropped down into the hole of the table for the machine to sit on? I own a Janome 6600. Any help you/your husband could offer would be so appreciated.

    Thanks,
