    What a wonderful sewing room. Great new cabinet! It does need a little organizing. Clutter doesn't bother some, it drives me crazy. LOL I wish I had your large room. If you were a little closer I'd be glad to come over and help you.

    It is a fun room to work in, I just needed to get the sewing machine lower to keep my shoulder from hurting. I did get my quilt frame together last night, now just to get the sewing machine lifted up on it. Well, I better get back to blocks. Thanks for looking.. Phannie

    What a great husband and a great sewing room!

    You have so much room but I don't think you have enough room for those two gorgeous chairs. I will be happy to provide a new home for them.
