A man has a man cave. I'm a lady with a lady loft?
Do you like to see your progress over time? I do just to make sure I AM making progress. So here is a review of my sewing environment starting with my sewing room before I moved.
Oh I loved that large cutting table even if I couldn't get around to the other side. Also notice my ironing station was not level with my sewing machine. I also had my "school office" in this room, so it was a minimum amount of space.
I never really liked this arrangement. I think I was sad and really doubting myself for cutting down my large sewing table. I lost so much space. Even though I'm not sharing my room with an office, it seems I lost a lot of space.
Also, I was not happy with the lighting even though I had a large window. In the late afternoons the sun shines directly into the room which is too much light.
Once I moved the cutting table away from the wall, I was a happier, however NOW I know we cut the size of the table too small because with the rearrangement of the cabinets, I need about an inch and half on each side. To this day, it's staying the same way and I will be satisfied unless I come across a surface at a yard sale of second hand store that has a super price and will work better than this surface.
I feel so blessed every time I go to this room to have all the library cabinets for storage.
The sewing room today hasn't changed from last year. I really like my setup now except my dream would be to have my machine sunken to have a level working surface for quilting projects which would be more ergonomically correct for my posture and help with my arthritis.
I feel so blessed everyday to have this work space.
