We are so lucky to have had a three bedroom place here for just short of ten years. One of those bedrooms has been my large sewing space and now we are busy turning it into a spare bedroom/office/sewing space. My big cutting table is gone and a trundle bed from craigslist has been installed. I can still cut out garments if I want to but I'll use my smaller sized cutting mat (we trimmed four inches off the width of the former one) and place it temporarily on the pub table in the kitchen/family room. The ironing board will no longer be kept in place but folded up and hung out of the way when I'm not sewing.
My next sewing will be a duvet cover for the new bed, a dust ruffle for the bottom trundle area and then accent pillows. Projects like these make me glad that I collect fabric. Everything is very neutral so that the artwork I eventually find and the accent pillows will be the highlights. I also plan to make a coordinated sewing machine cover so that every day I tidy up and cover the machine but still have it available when I do want to sew.
