    Nice setup! I like how you have your rulers organized, too. But I Really like the white drawer cabinet. I can see lots of fq's and larger scraps in there. Good job in utilizing your space

    What a nice setup. I bet you can go in and sew when you have a few minutes and don't have to do a "tear down" when it is time for family to eat. Enjoy your space.

    Very nice! Just swivel and you are ready to sew on the other machine!

    I'm curious about the brand of your tables, too. I have a friend who would like one like that!

    Smart way to organize your rulers! Thank you for sharing the idea.

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    Looks like a cozy and efficient work space. You certainly have given a lot of thought to organizing your sewing room and with all those windows, I imagine you have great daylight to work. I am jealous that you have both of your machines sunk into tables. I think it is a much easier way to sew, especially FMQ.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Sometimes bigger isn't better...I've gone from a 12x13 rm to a 33x25 rm over the garage...Boy setting it up and trying to not have to walk miles to iron, cut and set isn't so easy...I've been trying to figure out my sewing machine set up
    and I like what you did and will do that with my two Gidget Tables in front of the window so I have access to two machines...Now I just have to solve where things get stored and remembering where they are stored...The one thing I do like is having flr space to lay things out which I didn't have before...But sometimes cozy is nice!
