Sewing Room

Have I ever shared pictures of where I sew?  It's not a huge room but it's better than the 9 x 11 room (closet) I used to sew in before my daughter moved to Maryland  :)
Hubby bought me a really nice Horn of America cabinet for my cutting area and also a new sewing machine cabinet.  They weigh a ton (literally) and it took hubby and son HOURS to get up the stairs to the sewing room.  Yesterday I had an oopsie with an open basket of 2 inch squares.  Literally HUNDREDS of 2 inch squares were everywhere.  I decided that I could not spend hours again picking them up, sorting them by color and then putting them away so this morning at 7am when hubby was going to Shop Rite for some emergency food and stuff he ran into Walmart for me and brought back 4 bins for various size scraps.  I have them sorted by 5 inch, 3 inch, 2-1/2 and 2 inch.  I know my BFF's are proud of me for doing this since they've been so diligent at keeping their scraps at bay  :)   
Only problem with buying more bins is I didn't have a clue where to store them.....so, I looked in the cutting cabinet door and lo an behold, a whole spot that was being taken up by skinny little shelves that I presume are supposed to hold thread and bobbins.  I don't need those types of things because I have wall hanging spool holders.  Out they came, in went the bins and BANG!  a neat and orderly scrap cabinet!


It's the little things in my sewing room that make me happy.....
