    Glad y'all like it so much. We picked up some lights on Sunday and mounted them under the cabinets.
    I did my first sewing in it tonight, what a joy. I finished my sister's signature quilt from her wedding last summer. Something marked off the to do list! Yay!
    That big window looks out over the front. There are big trees and squirrels. Part of the room design process was ensuring we could get to it to open it and the blinds.
    It's funny all the positive comments on the wall color. It looks a little orange in the pictures, but it is actually an Americana red. It was painted when we moved in. The entire downstairs was painted really dark (i.e. hunter green in the LR). After using SO MANY coats of paint in the rest of the house, I think we have changed our minds and decided we like it just fine too!
    Good night

    Why don't you just convert the room to his and her hobby room? It's large enought to support the idea. Just sleep in the guest room, I'd love to do it with my house but hubby won't buy into it. We'd just live in there instead of being split up in the evenings.

    It looks like your reorganization is coming along well. Isn't it wonderful having a large window in your sewing studio! Continue the good work.

    To separate the sewing space from the bedroom space,I would find a nice folding screen or room divider and use it to divide the space. Nice area! Sandy

    What a lovely space. I love the window, especially. Your cabinets are very nice. I'm happy for you!

    Sandy, I thought about putting in a divider, but my DH comes in and watches TV in the bed in the evenings and it has turned into prime "together" time. We talk and share, etc. If I put in a divider, well, we would be divided.

    Room Update. I have finally gotten the 10' poles put on my frame!! Yeah!! There was a misunderstanding about the extra set of pole ends I had ordered 5+ years ago. When I opened the box(yes five years later) it was the wrong set. **sigh** I couldn't believe it. I called but couldn't exchange them, it was too late. I was about to order a new set with the "updated" specifications, when I thought to ask what the updated specs were. Come to find out, it was exactly what I had in my hot little hands! Woo Hoo! I just finished making the new leaders tonight. They are on the frame, ready to got. I also prepared the backs for a queen and a king quilt tops I have completed in the last few weeks. I can't wait to get them on the frame!

    Thank you for all the support and encouragement everyone has given me. I really appreciate it!
    Good night, y'all!

    Here is one more little hint for you. When I don't have time to put things away between projects, find a spot to put things that need to be put back away. It saves lots of time and energy to have them all in the same spot. I clean/straighten mine on friday's so it is a fresh start at the beginning of the week.[/QUOTE]

    Great Idea! I can see a special basket some place in my SR waiting for Friday clean-up! Kinda like Rachael Ray's garbage bowl. I can do this!

    Fantastic space - when starting a project like this it seems like it gets worse and worse, then all of a sudden it is done and so worth the work. Enjoy your new space.
