I am still trying to get my sewing corner better arranged and contained. In switching back and forth from the serger to the sewing machine I got tired of the cords and foot feeds getting in the way and I needed for my surge protector to be more accessible for plugging things into it.
I slid the two plastic bookshelves a bit apart and laid the surge protector between them. Then, I put a basket on the floor to hold the foot feeds for both machines when I am not using them. Then, I serged the ends of two pieces of wide elastic, added buttons and a piece of elastic cord to use in keeping my cords from getting in the way on top of the sewing counter. I like this arrangement much better.
