new craft room!

i have moved from my little house in beautiful downtown seward to a senior living apartment across our kenai peninsula, which means of course, that i have a new craft room!  what fit so nicely in my old little back room does not work here ... i have three times the room for what i had in that little room and my old arrangement is not going to work. 

this is part of what i brought over ... the rest is in my storage room and hallway.   [all fabric and in one of the twelve boxes is my sewing machine power cord]  my daughter's moving crew did not mark boxes!

 my computer and phone system was up and working monday evening after they turned things on for it.  luckily my computer worked on my first attempt to make the connections; the computer book is yet to be unpacked.                                                                                                      
 so, i got rid of my big stash cabinets; can not attach anything to the wall but pictures.   out with the old and in with the new.  new tables for my sewing machine and computer ~ arrow gidgets.  will have to make some adjustments ... my viking is too big for the hole.  i have my tool kit with a jig saw and will fix that!  the cabinets i'm keeping need feet on them to stand on the carpet; i'll fix that, too.  will put wheels on two of the cabinets, one for a cutting table and one for a pressing table.  so, i'll eventually get my act together and have a nice craft room!                                                                                                           
the rest of the aparment is shaping up ... i do putter around, resting frequently and will eventually be able to do some quilting things!    am taking this weekend off, though, so i'll feel up to driving a mile or so to get wheels and things.
