Our old rooms used to be across the hall from each other and we could actually talk to each other. (With the tv and cd player muted.) Now we have to go find one anther!! I'm wondering if I'm going to end up in the basement with him!! LOL.
    Have a good 2011 everyone.
    I'm so glad you posted that!
    We live in an older home, built 1918, and after adding on and the kids becoming adults, we turned the attached living room and dining room into my sewing room, and 'his whatever' room. It just never seemed odd to us, we still like each other, after almost 30 yrs of marriage.

    Glad we're not too alone in thinking we kind of like each other bring there. Besides, I can use the tv in his side of the room which I can see perfectly from my sewing chair

    We are probably close in age. We have been married 55 years this past October. Isn't it wonderful to still love each other after all that time. Wish the whole world could be the same way. DH is also my very best friend.

    We sure did . I was just barely 19 when we tied the knot. My GGs and GGd's will never believe I could ever have been that young. LOL

    My sewing room is upstairs, so I am up and down them a lot, or he is up and down them alot when I am in there. Most of the time he just yells up so I can come down to see what he wants. :( Not the best set up, but came with the house. If I was to move, I certainly would have my sewing room next to the tv room!
    We were young when we got married and still love to spend time with each other, not every second though! I feel so lucky.

    When we got our front loading washer & dryer I set up my feather weight on the dryer and my medium sized cutting board on the washer. When I need to iron I put my large June Taylor ironing pad on top of the cutting board. Yes, I sew standing up, but my back doesn't get as stiff as it does form sitting. When my oldest son moved out most of my quilting stuff went into his old room, but I still like to do most of my piecing in the laundry room.
