    Hubby wanted to move my sewing room to the other end of the house. This way I could sew at night and it wouldn't bother him. (He is an early to bed and rise type person) I have always wanted this other room anyway, so that was fine with me!

    Little did I know what a huge undertaking that would be. I wanted to wash and press all my fabric so that really slowed the move up. Oh well, I didn't have anything to do for a month ...LOL!

    Here is how far I have gotten ... Yup all those drawers have fabrics in them too!

    oak cabinet has all my patterns in it.

    I also cut on this part of the desk. My cutting mat covers it completely.

    Had to fill up under the gracieII with little fabric units and extra sewing machines.

    can you tell us more about the green (drawers)? I see them on your table too, in a white shelf of sorts.

    Great looking room. Cute potholders.

    I have one of those type Hubbies too. I'm the opposite, especially since I have gotten older. UGH!!!

    Thanks so much everyone! It really was a pill to get it this way ... LOL!
    The pot Holders are a pattern from Vanilla House I got at my LQS. I have seen them on line for sale too though. They are so fun to make.

    The shelving and drawers are a system you can buy at Lowe's. The drawers you buy seperatly. They have tons of colors to choose from. We found it on line ordered it and they had them ready for pick up by the time we got there. Way nice to save time and no extra charge.

    The one on my desk was a small two shelf unit I turned on its side to use. The drawers only fit that way in this unit but I knew I wanted to put it there for my sewing machine extras. I think the whole set is by rubbermaid, but they are heavy buggers. And the drawers are a perferated type fabric that can breath.

    Oh this is a nine cubes unit on the bottom and a six stacked on top of it. Then the shelfing up above is three brown shoe units (I think) all in a row that fit perfectly.
