    This table runner was lots of fun to complete, many small pieces, hard to see working with black and the pink adds a little spark to the black and white.

    Mothers old sewing machine cabinet sent to cabinet maker, put on a new top, hydraulic lift to hold machine at a variety of levels, purchased on line from Lee Valley supply, and now I have lots of space to spread out, will attach pictures so you can see how it was done.

    Mothers old sewing cabinet still works for me

    Sewing table is 8 ft x 44" wide, drawer pulls out and another board sits on top for holding large quilts to work on.

    Very cool. I love the pink and black together. The lift is really neat. My machine sits on top of counter and I do get sore shoulders and neck when I sew.

    That table runner is great! I love black and white, and you've added just the right amount of pink to give it spark.

    Waiting for more cabinets that are coming, so I can sort and organize the rest of the material and supplies - have 12 clear tubs in our storage room in the basement...I can hardly wait to have it all sorted out, been a year in the works already. Sewing room gets in such a mess, but at least I can close the door. Happy Quilter!!

    That is a fabulous table runner - and awesome sewing set up you have there :)

    I'm surprised that nobody has asked about that pattern for the table runner! I know I'm curious - it really is a fabulous! It is really sharp and black/pink is such a hot combo!
