Default Loving tables and cabinets my husband made!

I have a designated room for sewing, but it is a converted porch, so there is only one wall to hang stuff. The other three walls are sliding glass doors. I have found this to be a challenge. But I love being in this room as it is right off the living room, so my husband can be watching tv or reading right next to me and I feel like we are not isolated from each other. He has been awesome... building more cabinets and tables, so I can efficiently use my space. I have attached some pictures of my room. The only real wall I have is taken up with the thread stand he built. I have a retractable screen that comes down over the thread stand that I use for my quilt designs. Moving left around the room, next is the large cabinet with drawers for storage. My embroidery machine sits there on the counter. The next wall to the left is my sewing machine. He recently built me a large table and my machine sits flush with the table top. To the left of my sewing table is the cutting table. It has a built in drawer that is accessible while I am sitting at the sewing machine or standing to cut. I can stand on three sides of the table to cut or iron. But the best part is the retractable shelf, that I can pull out as needed while I am sewing. He made a large pressing board that you can just barely see behind the blinds. When I need it, I pull it out and it sits on top of the cutting table. For small pressing, I use the small portable board in the corner...it is on wheels so I can just push it around where I want it. He finished my sewing table this weekend, and I really can't think of anything else I need or want!!!!!

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
