Craft It Up! ||| This is a very nice setup, especially if the desk faces an open area of the house as the photo implies. That sounds like a bad idea, but it looks like she's pulling it off! I'll definitely be looking closer at this one.
A small kitchen island makes a useful craft cart. Store magazines and patterns in boxes, fabric in a wire basket, and hide small quilting notions behind a door. Post notes and inspiration on a bulletin board surface inside the door.
