The sewing room is coming together!

I've been working hard the past week. The cabinets are built and in place. The sewing table, sewing machines, and table are in place. My son's study area is set-up. My store inventory has moved back in. The office area and the pattern cabinet are still waiting to be moved. I have been going through boxes of fabric and storing inside the new cabinets.

I finally located the missing tools for my serger and I can now change the needles again. That was a very exciting moment. I have also found lots of fabric that I had forgotten about - fabric for table clothes, outside cushions, etc. Judging from the quantity of black fabric, I like black, too. Who knows what I was thinking? I did take myself off of all the yahoo groups that sell fabric. So, that I could no longer join in the buying frenzies. I have so much fabric that I could open my own mini fabric store. Oh, not only to l like black fabric but it looks like I generally purchase in a quantity of 5 yards. So, I really do have mini bolts of fabric.

I do need to purchase a second plug-in strip for the sewing area. With the sewing table in the middle of the room, I really don't have a long enough cord going to either of the new plugs to plug all three machines in. Maybe, I can get them attached to the table somehow to help with the messy cable syndrome that is going to happen. Then I will need to purchase the plastic cord covers to cover the cable running across the floor. I really don't need any additional tripping hazards.

Off to work for a bit. Then, I will attempt to empty another box of fabric. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do with all of the boxes of projects.

Happy Sewing
