WHOO HOO!!!! It is finally finished and ready to go. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I should say first that this is one of those projects that has taken YEARS to finish and was done on a budget...like we found the wood in an old barn and my husband cleaned it up and made it into something beautiful. The only money spent on it was for the machine lift.
A drawer for everything, everything in its drawer, and there is a lot of room for growth. (I can hardly stand not being down there and sewing.)
The best part...the side piece comes up so when I'm quilting those big quilts or sewing the bindings on the fabric won't pull when it is hanging over the edge. I think I will use it more than I ever imagined as it is the perfect height for my light box and should make tracing embroidery designs simple! I did realize this morning when he was marking the plexiglass that goes around the machine that I am going to have to relearn how to sew. I've never not sewn on an odd sized table and always had to sit on a pillow or two so my neck didn't hurt. You can also see the design wall behind the sewing machine (yes, my talented husband made that too).
Last night for FNSI I worked on Noah, a sheep, a pig, and an elephant. I figured I should work on some hand work as I am pretty sure my time will now be spent by the sewing machine. I will also be looking for the perfect quilt pattern to make as a thank you for my sewing cabinet...thanks Brad, I love it! Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
