This is the view from my spot behind my sewing cabinet. I picked it up last year on Craig's List for a song, and though it's not a perfect fit for my machine, it's worked quite well for me. Backed up to my sewing cabinet is my dad's old desk, which holds a huge amount of sentimental value to me. It fits my 24" x 36" Olfa cutting mat perfectly, with a little bit of extra space for my cutting tools and a few small scrap bins.
My stash is pretty well-organized now, with all of the half-yard or larger cuts wrapped around a comic book backing board and shelved. Fat quarters are relegated to the drawers under my design wall, sorted by color. I've got bins for most of my current projects, which I have stacked up next to my fabric bookcases, and each bin is labeled with the project name in nice big letters that I can read even without my glasses. It's good accountability for me, staring at bins holding all of my unfinished projects while I sew.
And this is my baby, my Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 835. This is the machine my husband bought me two Christmases ago, good man that he is. I love my machine. I love the huge harp space, I love how easy it is to quilt on, and I love the needle-down feature. Hands down, my favorite electronic feature of this machine.
The irony is that I've spent the last several days daydreaming about revamping my sewing space...again! I happened to spot a folding cutting table at Jo-Ann's that was assembled and out of the box, and I stood at it for just a moment. It was almost like I could hear a choir behind me singing. It was that magic height for cutting, which my current cutting desk is totally not (being that it's really a desk and all), which often leaves me groaning about my lower back. So, I am toying with the idea of building a cutting island, using some wood and bookcases that are the right height, but until then, I'm really happy with how everything is set up in my sewing space.
