ONE FABRIC FOLDING LESSON FROM MY SISTER......AND I AM OFF.....first purchase for my sewing room....come and see.

My sister Beverly came by last night and gave me a folding lesson......she just eyed her folds but I am having to use a ruler.  I am just thrilled...so you know what I will be doing today!!!

If you walk into Beverly's sewing room all of her fabric is stacked so nice and neatly.  You noticed that I did not show you the rest of the fabrics...maybe when I get them all folded....

 Then we went to Big Lots and this beauty is what I found....oh my gosh.  It was sitting by the front door so you couldn't miss it.  Half off.......my husband was even surprised at how sturdy it was....so you my friend

                                                                        are
                                                      looking at my new cutting table.  A big shout out to my husband...he is the one that spend all afternoon putting it together....

My sister and mother loved it so much that we went back that evening to get them one..... 

All I can say is that it changes the look of my sewing room ..... Gave me the incentive to get in there and fold, declutter...throw more stuff away...if you are close by....I can throw some stuff your way.

So true, organized exterior can get the interior of our minds thinking clearer. I truly believe that. Now if I could just get myself organized.

Score big time. Can't wait to see the room all done.

Nice bargain. You'll never see my sewing room; too messy.

Fabulous cutting table! Love the cubbies on the end. Is it counter height? I use a counter-height table that I got on clearance at a furniture store at a steal of a price. It's perfect for me and help me dress up my sewing room but you've probably seen my two posts on my blog about my sewing room I did awhile ago. I finally posted on my sewing blog and my family blog so you'll have to stop by. I'm taking pictures now of things I've worked on so that I can post more on the sewing blog. I don't go back to school now until August due to emergency surgery with my Savannah who just turned 6. She can't go back to Washington with her parents since she has pins in her finger due to liability reasons with the surgeon here and my daughter's insurance won't pay the bills if she goes to anyone but him until the pins come out, so she's living with me for 4-6 weeks! It's going to be a ball for me but hard on my daughter and Savannah's sisters. She loves to sew with me so we'll be posting more to keep her mama updated.

Great purchase, Barb! And pretty as well!

Can you grab a pic of the room with the new table in it? Hard to visualize size, etc. without that. Big Lots, I may be headed in your direction! PS...great folding! ;)

I'm going to have to look for one at my Big Lots!

The new cutting table is gorgeous! I had never realized how much a right sized cutting table prevent an aching back until I got something tall enough. Makes a world of difference!
