WOW! Let there be light!

I have been complaining and yes, even whining about the light above my sewing space.  I sew in our downstairs kitchen on a giant harvest table that Husband made from cedar barn planks.  It is a fabulous space because the table is vast and I can leave everything everywhere and it is all good.  The light above the table was a fixture my mum found in a for free bin at the Kiwanis Market in her little town.  It looked good in a shabby chic kind of way and would be great if it was in a eating area but for task lighting in a sewing space, it just didn't work.  Yesterday, while I was at work, Husband installed 2 fluorescent fixtures above the table.  Oh my goodness!  What a tremendous difference!!!!!  I can now even take pictures on my cutting board without them being dark and yellow.  I am just so tickled.  This was my birthday present.  The lights that is and I couldn't be happier with the result.

Don't mind my mess.  The garbage bags everywhere are filled with fabric.  You know that story.
