I’m still debating what kind of finished top I want to put on the 3-drawer dresser unit/book shelves – but I can jam those cabinets full of stuff in the meantime. Not sure if I want to have an ironing type surface, cutting surface or a decorative surface. I would love to put a variety of old yards across the top, but I’ll never find enough of those.

Hold on to your hats….my Boutique buddy Sue (not Susan) took it one step further and made ALL the ladies in the group a pin cushion (with said logo) for Christmas. Scrappy pin-cushions no less, with coloring and embroidery. This woman never ceases to amaze me. I absolutely love them!
Whoop-whoop, these things are so dang cute!

With the Boutique behind me, I can get back to working on my newly remodeled sewing room. Wootwoot! Seeing the newly installed sheet rock instead of knotty pine, and hard wood instead of the ratty carpet made the fabric cubes looked cheap. I’ll admit they are cheap, but I didn’t want them to “look” cheap. Purchasing a snazzy new fabric storage system isn’t going to happen, especially when my budget spreadsheet literally laughed at me. So, I had to improvise. Where do you go when you’re unsure about what to do? Pinterest. Yep, once again, it didn’t let me down. Searched billy (ikea brand – although I had the Walmart brand) shelving and viola, lots of redos, remakes and renovations.
