    Smile Sewing Space & Cutting Table

    For the last two months we have been renovationing. We renovated our master bath, then turned our 3 season porch into a 4 season porch. Half of it has become my new sewing space. Yeah ! Now I no loner have to pick up everything and put it away each time I stop my work. One neat thing DH did for me was recycle the old bathroom vanity and turn it into a cutting for me. Of course it has storage space below. None of this is real fancy, but it is better than what I had...which was nothing. Tomorrow he is making me my design board!!

    The other half of this area is our casual dining space, so I thought I would share a pic of my table topper as well.

    This is a long weekend for me, I plan to finally get some quilting in it has been a long time...almost forgot how. TeeHee.

    Nice sewing space. I too love to re-purpose things into wonderful useful things.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Nice space. I envy anyone who has a dedicated quilting room. I love the old lamp, and I believe that is an old Singer in that wooden case. Have fun!
