I am slowly becoming accustomed to my lack of workspace. Although we are looking at putting on another story to this house so maybe thenI will be able to spread out a bit. But that is going to be 12 months in the future, so for now I just have to make do.
The new cutting mat is by Matilda's Own and work like a lazy susan. I don't think it would be any good for large amounts of fabric but it is great for anything up to about 12 inches square.
(There it goes again, sideways.)
It fits really well on the end of my Sew Eazi machine table and I have also bought a small steam travel iron that will sit on the other side. So things are looking up.
I have also put hangers on the ends of the book case and have hung my work tools here. Sure is easier to find than searching through a draw.
