Happy New Year!!!!

I hope everyone had a great holiday and a happy new year. I sure did. Due to the busy schedule that holidays tend to create, I haven't been able to post anything, or create much. But I wanted to jump back in with some news. I'm trying to get my craft room in order. Especially since I now have 3 new (actually 2 are vintage) sewing machines!!! My parents got a Singer featherweight and a Singer Touch and Sew at an auction and offered them to me. Of course I said yes to that! Can't wait to get to sewing on those beauties. And then they also surprised me with a surger for Christmas. That!! I am so stinking jump-up-and-down happy about! I can finally make me some knit maxi skirts!

I'll definitely be posting about those more in detail later, but for now, another little tidbit. I don't have much in the way of furniture for my craft room. I have a drafting table, a dining table and an oversized bookcase that was made to house an old box tv. Massive. It's gotta go. I'm gonna try to get someone to pay for it, but if not, I'll donate just to get it out of the room...

And with 3 sewing machines, where will they all go?! I was considering an ikea desk, but nothing was making me happy. And then I thought about making a desk out of cabinets and plywood. But I don't want to have to jury rig something in order to reach the foot pedal for a counter height sewing desk. So what to do?..
