What a lovely room!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
What a sweet dh! Your guest room looks very pretty. Can't wait to see pics of your sewing room. :D
Lori be sure to call me when you come in this way again!!! just pm me for my cell number. It would be nice to meet up even if for only a coffee. Coffee Matters down by the Fairmont Hotel is a beautiful little coffee shop to chat!Originally Posted by Mamagus
so if your trailer is winterized, will you be over this way during the winter???
Love your new guest room and the quilt on the bed and the fact that your DH "gets" it.
love the progress....My DH is a keeper too! :-)
I love it when everyone shares the reality of all of our sewing rooms!! Why is it we end up w/everything there??:))I have vowed after my last cleaning in the S.R. that nothing enters unless it has to do w/quilting. No more flying Barbies, school papers, paid bills to be filed, etc!! And, I am sticking to it!:))Sure makes room for the fabric that way:))
*Love your quilt on that bed!! All of it looks sharp! Very inviting guest room! And, that closet...well, you have not only a man capable over there but, obv. one that finishes what he started..so, you might toss him in that closet and lock the door for his own safety!:))Can't wait to see your new room!

Cissy quilts.. just wanted to say love the Avatar!!! I just saw Ironman tonight!!! awesome movie!Originally Posted by CissyQuilts
Oh my! I was scared when I saw the first picture. Thought....hmmm....I'm NOT THAT LITTLE!! Where would I sleep? lol
Then, saw the rest. NICE! I love it! Look! I have a window, a nice little dresser for my clothes, a tv so I can watch a little of whatever nonsense is on. AND BEST OF ALL!! A VERY NICE QUILT!! What more could a person ask for?
Your hubby has done a GREAT job!
Now Terri, remember that he helped with the flooring, new wood trims and moving the furniture. The other three weeks of work was all mine! LOL
I am packing up the remnants of Erin's bedroom today and we start putting the sewing room together when he finishes work at 2!!! I am SO excited.
Does anyone have an idea what the ideal work surface height would be?
I am finding my current 32" to the top of the machine bed too high, so this time around I'll have an option! I am 5' 6" if that matters!
Are you talking about tops to cut from??Or sewing? Either way your ergonomics would tell you to have a slight bend at your elboy while hands are on the countertops...same w/sewing. Does your kitchen countertops fit you?Are you comfortable at their height?If so, measure them.
Here's a good example of sewing machine position at: http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/sewi...iondesign.html
also, here's some info w/measurments at: http://www.lemontreetales.com/lemon_...hen-i-sew.html at the bottom of her page is more info on sewing room ideas, etc
