Last night, late last night, I went down into the Wife Cave to do a little more rearranging. I’m trying to make the Wife Cave more organized and user friendly. Some of this involved moving my shelving cabinets around.
A big accomplishment was getting my sewing table set up and my sewing machine back out of the box.
