The unveiling! These are my new cabinets for my sewing room! They are my 60th birthday present from my husband. My birthday was in January, but these things take time. My husband wanted to give me jewelry or and expensive watch. The kind of things so many women enjoy. But I have been wanting shelves for, what seems like, my entire life! You may recall my sewing room clutter from previous pictures. I can’t promise it will never be cluttered again, but at least this gives me a fighting chance! I had it built to accommodate my plastic storage boxes, so I can put one large box, or two medium sized boxes on a shelf. I can pull them out to sort through them. I also am using the lids to stack fabric or projects on. I was explaining to my husband that I can now label my projects, so I know right where they are. (Since I have so many “in progress”). He suggested that I date them as well. Very funny. The center of the unit contains file drawers for my quilting needs. DH has a goal to get all my stuff out of the office and into my own room. My suggestion of knocking down the wall between the two rooms was not even considered. Go figure! For those of you who are sewing on your kitchen table, please know that I did that for many years also. Life has many stages. For a long time I experienced the stage where the kids always came first. As well they should! But now it is my turn, and I think that is OK too. My husband? Well, he is still waiting for his turn, bless him. His dream is of antique cars and big boats. Let’s see if he will settle for a good homemade dinner tonight.
