My husband finally got around to making an actual table that fits inside of the converted closet in my sewing room. My "Media Nook" . My monitor corked out and I had to get a new one. I decided to do all of my netflix and streaming over my monitor instead of my television, so I got a bigger monitor which wouldn't have fit on the folding table I was using while waiting for this upgrade (I waited 3 years for him to do it, and it only took a couple of days of concentrated nagging to get it done) . We are in the process of re-wiring our house and I want to have a power strip put into the base of the wall to neaten up the area. Of course all of this means that when I am dead and gone, someone will be wondering why the heck a closet has 10 outlets, but that will just have to be a mystery along with the unfinished quilt tops that I will undoubtedly leave behind.
I have one that fits into the bottom of a craft duffel bag that I take to workshops.Since everything I keep in the bag makes it heavy, I just moved everything over to a rolling tote that is meant for knitting supplies. The larger board fits perfectly in the side pocket.
When I am sewing, I pull out the drawer that is to the left of me and place one of my pressing boards there so that I can press small blocks as I make them. It is also great for paper piecing.
Hopefully I will be back more often. I just needed a break. I finally got my file cabinets upstairs. I had them downstairs when my sewing room was there, and I kept all of my batiks and hand dyes in them. The lighting wasn't great, and I rarely got down to dig through them for anything. Now they are in the next room, and I will be digging in.
I'll snap a pic when I am finished organizing.
Well, I'm off today, it is nice to just hang around the house. Short lived as my daughter and I are going to see a movie. Soon my other daughter will be living nearby, so we will all be together again. I'm really looking forward to that.
Bye for now,
