Something New and Frank's Progress.

You might remember from my blog post a few weeks ago that I mentioned that I had ordered something that would be delivered in a few was delivery day!  This is my front hall after everything was out of the truck and in my front hall.
The delivery people carried each piece down the stairs to the basement...

where they put everything together...

in my new sewing room!

This room used to be our home office, but like most people these days, we have a laptop and don't need an office for our computer anymore.  The desk was donated to Habitat for Humanity a couple of weeks ago to make room for my new sewing machine cabinet and cutting table.

They even put my machine into the recessed part and set it to the right level.

The cutting table has drop down sections on each side which can be put up to make it bigger as well as lots of storage. There is a slot at the back behind the drawers for large ruler and spare cutting board storage.   The chair in the corner will be perfect for hand sewing.

The furniture was made by Eddycrest Design and Build. Adam Eddy started up this company and made his first sewing table for his mother, customizing the height and storage to her needs. My sewing furniture was customized to my specifications and my (short) height so that I will not strain my body while doing lots of cutting and sewing. My kitchen table is too low for cutting and the kitchen counter is too high, but my new cutting table is just right!!!

I spent some time tonight putting supplies into some of the drawers.  There is still lots more to do and I will show more pictures in a future blogpost.

In the meantime, while waiting for my furniture to arrive, I did lots of sewing on Frank this week.  Here is Frank last week:

Frank is coming along quite nicely. I even did some sewing in the gazebo last Monday (Thanksgiving).  This weekend, we have has some snow in the air, so I will be sewing inside, not out in the gazebo!

I think I should be able to finish this project by the end of October!
