    This is scary-I own the storage box-the pink one sitting on top of your green tub!!! Now I know I am truly a crafter! Thanks for sharing. What's in yours?

My small ironing board and other machine storage are in the second closet. I now have room for all 5 of my sewing machines and I can actually find something in my stash.

    One suggestion on your window? if you're going to cover it put one of those shoe pocket things up there, made from canvas, and you have lots of pockets to hold more stuff.

    Love you machine.

    I am going to leave my Roman Shades up since this room is used by occasional guests also. I've encroached on the bed enough as it is. The next project is to put up mirrored bi-fold closet doors. That will reflect the light and help in a big way. When we put the new floors in, our bifold doors would not fit any more.

    If only I could get organized. Congratulations on your finds.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You can do mine next, if you want...

    Am in the process of 'organizing' all my fabric right now. My living and dining rooms look like a bomb blew up in a fabric store!

    Love the color of that old gal. Bet she keeps you on your toes! I am starting to go through my sewing room, boy is it daunting. I hate to say it, but I think I am a closet fabric hoarder.

    Good for you. I have done it about five times. The trick is to keep it that way, good luck with that. Always take that extra minute or two to put things back away when you are done. That's my big failure a lot of the time and before I know it I'm right back where I was.

    Great looking machine and table. Good finds!

    Good luck with your new look.
