    I am going to do it!!!!!

    I have used the third bedroom for a sewing room for 10 years. First it had a single bed in it than I moved that out. Our two sons live far away and we always travel to see them. Easier for us than it is for them to travel {each have three kids) to see us. I am going to take out the bed and furniture in the second bedroom and expand my sewing area. I am so excited. DH thinks its an awesome idea. When I brought it up to him last night he said " What took you so long to decide that?" If we have company we have a small guest house and a huge fifth wheel trailer for them to sleep in. I am going to put in a huge pressing table, design wall and have shelves to store everything. I going to have a top made to go over the pressing table so I can pin quilts on it. The pressing table will sit in the middle of the room so I can walk all the way around it. I work 7 days on and than have 7 days off. My first day off will be Wed. I have to get 4 quilts ready for a quilt show on Friday. So I will have most of Thursday to get working on this. We will get home Sunday night, so that leaves me with Mon-Wed. to get it finished. I hope by the time I go back to work Wed. night that I will have most of it done. Will post pictures when both rooms are done. I am so excited. DH said he would make a door between the two rooms, but I said no, I need the wall space and the walking will do me good. I will keep a small ironing board in the main sewing room to press seams as I sew. Thanks for letting me share my excitement. I want to start tonight when I get home, but know that will not happen.

    thanks everyone. I just ordered the shelves to go under the pressing table. They won't be here till the 16th but can get the rest ready to go. It will be so nice to get organized again and have lots of room. I am really glad DH retired cause he can work on shelves while I am at work. :0)

    Congrats on using your home to the best advantage. I took over the third bedroom for my 10 ft. frame and Mega-quilter by Viking.....at the suggestion of my DH. I haven't had a moment of regret. We pay so much for our homes we might as well use every bit of space according to our individual lifestyles. ;-)
