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!
