Sewing Room Clean Out !

Pin It
It took me time, my heart and lots of pictures. My sewing room is getting cleaned up and OUT ! 
Post from a few weeks ago


This is how my sewing room started, I had the buffet for years and it's the perfect height for cutting fabric. Husband built the shelving around it for me. 


The just about there


The THERE 



My buffet was a huge conversation on Facebook, the other day when I posted it's picture. I put it on Craigslist and it sold in 1 day ! It was VERY cold here as it was loaded up, but the lady who purchased it was thrilled and me....I'm alright with it. 

AND NEXT

They say, "If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger"
Here I go !
