Sewing Room Makeover Day 6

I made a decision on my bulletin board fabric.

It's okay. Not what I envisioned but it's done. It will get covered up with stuff soon and then fabric won't be very visible anyway.

Yesterday I just took my time putting things away, sorting through stuff, deciding if I really need to keep it or not. I tried not to bring in too much stuff until I knew where it would go. I've decided that I need a longer and narrower table for underneath my window between the vertical shelves. I use the table as a desk, a secondary cutting and pressing area, storage for books and magazines I'm using and a place for the cat to lay and look out the window. When I'm free-motion quilting it also functions as a place for the quilt to rest as I sew on it. Here is how the room looks this morning.

I still don't have my blind installed so it is difficult to get a good picture at this time of day. Sorry. You can see the table I have in the first picture above. It is 46" by 30" and I'd like something that is 60" by 24". Time to start shopping again! Maybe I should look at desks. Having more drawer storage would be nice.

I'll leave you with a photo of Goldie, sort of - you can see her back feet.

We have grasses where most folks would put bushes in the front of our house. The grasses require less water than bushes and are more in-keeping with the rest of the plants in our yard. Goldie seems to like them.

I'm in the process of re-doing my sewing/office room, also.
I can't wait until it looks as organized as your's!
