    Good idea. Yes, the table looks like it would wobble.

    Any artist will tell you that you have to have good tools to do good work. Now you have some good tools - enjoy!

    eventually you will move the sofa out, install shelves for all your stash, and be really happy with it. Once you get used to having space, it is something necessary if you have to move. Like getting an additional bedroom... and then turning it into a sewing room.

    That looks much more comfortable. The chair sure is pretty and bright, good job enjoy. My sewing room is also in the sun room, now my husband has moved his computer setup in with me. makes it nice we can work in the same area.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
