Workin' on the workroom.

I recently recovered my cutting/ironing table. I like to pad it so that I can easily iron on it. I pad it with thrifted mattress pads and top it with a thrifted cotton sheet, since cotton can handle a higher iron setting than a cotton/poly blend.



I found these chrome shopping baskets on e-bay for a great price. They are my new workroom storage containers.




I will post a picture of my new shelves when they get painted. Just need a free weekend. This weekend I will be participating in the wedding trunk show on Saturday. On Sunday I will be at a local quilt show, not participating, but admiring the beautiful handwork, and visiting all the great vendors.

Oh, a new workroom -- is there anything better? I love plotting and planning a new workroom, figuring out what I need and how to make it so. I like your whole table ironing pad. Very smart. Your pockets there with all your goodies is most enticing. Some people can work out of a jumble, but I'm not wired that way -- I like to reach for my calculator, my scissors, my tape and actually have them be where they belong. Ahhh, I am heaving a sigh of glee for your new room.

Good for you,
Jenny
