Moved in, finally!

Well, over the past week,  I have been moving into my new studio space!  I am exhausted!  Here are a few progress photos.
This is a photo of my husband welding a frame to support my new cutting surface.  He's been working hard to help me out!  He's also welded up a set of castors to bolts that I can put on my quilting machine, so I can roll it out of the way when I need to.

This is the finished cutting table.  We put it on an old drafting table base that we acquired several years ago, and finally it has come in handy!  It also has a swingarm little side table  that was meant to support a computer monitor, but I find it a handy place to store my cutting tools, scissors and pins.

This is an old wardrobe my husbands grandfather or great-grandfather built.   I plan to store my client quilts in it.  I painted it white inside to make it look fresh and clean.

This is a new sewing area.  My brother had given me a couple of cabinets that used to house his videos and support his t.v.  With a few minor alterations and a new top, it makes an awesome sewing desk!  And inside is a turntable shelf that will hold my threads. 

It makes me feel good when I finally use something that I've saved for years!

And last but not least, my quilting machine was set up with the help of our sons who visited last week.
