    You know how I got my own sewing space? By taking first a corner, then a bedroom, then another. When the last son went off to college, my hubs said (no kidding here), "you're getting a separate sewing room before you move our bed out." As if I tossed the kids out.....I may have encouraged just a teensy bit, but they were hitting 20! You see, keep it up but be careful that you don't appear too pushy.

    I love what you have done already, I also have the dining room as hobbyroom and more it is even my bedroom now(I sleep in a hospitalbed). I cann't get up the stairs anymore so everyting I do for hobbyand that quit a lot) I do in the dining room, for the moment because we are going to install a stairelevator and then I can go upstairs again, my husband already paint the former room of our son(he lives at his girlfriend know)so in a short time I will finaly have my own hobbyroom and looking forward to it. Later on I will post some pictures when we start to decorate it.

    100 yards of fabric?? In my wildest dreams I could not imagine that being YOUR stash versus a quilt store. You are a very fortunate lady!!

    My husband built me a quilt ladder - quilt ladder - happy! - which I put in the living room where a small book case had been. The items on that bookcase are now sitting in laundry baskets waiting for a place to live in the kids' old bedrooms.

    The bookcase ended up in my sewing/dining room and THIS is how that came out! This cures one corner, but takes care of most of my yardage. The tubs still under the window contain backing - anything over 3 yds. Most of the fabric on the bookcase is 1 yard or a bit more. There are over 100 yards of fabric on this small bookcase. The tubs on the bookcase have fabric which is less than a yard - organized by color as well as I could manage it. The hutch which sets next to this window has bundles and kits - more on it later...

    More corners will be on display as the story continues....

    I also use to sew in my dining room for years and years. LUckily my dh didn't mind that I left the project there until ti was done. Now I have my own studio and I love it. But we quilters will sew anywhere we can!!
