    Makes me think you could get some good ideas for rearranging upstairs. There is a book, "Quilting Rooms", sorry that is not the complete title, but maybe someone here has it handy and could give the complete title. There are a couple of rooms arranged in the living spaces you might be able to adapt.

    Well thanks for the ideas. Actually, we have decided to turn the old kennel bldg into a garage for DH truck. All we really have to do is change one short end wall into a garage door wall. Most of my things are now in basement. Boy, I had more than I thought. But I cleaned out some cupboards, rearranged paint cans, lite bulbs, etc etc that you end up collecting in a basement and so far have 6' and 4' tables, built-in old kitchen cupbards that were there and one other 3 drawer cupboard and some shelves. We are going to put an old pingpong table top there so I can lay quilt tops in progress on. I have decided that I will have room for lots of my scrapbook stuff also on the shelves. I do believe I will look for a tv/radio/ something just to have noise. I determined that most sewing time is when DH is gone anyway and the hand sewing I will still do upstairs.
    I have taken some pictures and when done will take more and post them. ps-thought abt taking the main level guest room but my mom can't make it down steps to sleep in basement bdrm.

    Good luck with your change! My room is the opposite side of the house from the family room where DH watches his tv. Seems to be working out so far.
