    Our new apartment has an extra room and so I decided that instead of giving it to Alex (my husband) for his "man cave" and took it to be my craft room. I didn't really buy anything new for it except some baskets from the dollar store. What I wouldn't give for a nice big table for my sewing machine but its alright right now. Besides quilting this room holds all of my scrapbooking supplies, paint, beads, and artwork.

    the quilt is one I started for my husbands little sister, she just moved up here, to Logan Utah, to go to college at Utah State University. This is one she saw on the board and asked me to make. I didn't have a pattern and just sorta guess most of it. It has turned out well though. She is very happy with the results.

    Looks like you are well set up for hours of quilty pleasure, including evidence of a quilt inspector off in the right corner!

    Your DH can use all the great outdoors as his space, LOL!
    Or the living room with the TV. :-D

    Your projects look well in hand too, wonderful!

    I agree with Jan -- let DH have the outdoors while you take the extra room. My eldest DD is a new professor at Utah State and experienced her first 'real' winter. Hope you like lots of snow!!!!! Summer seems to be great, however.

    oh yes I do have to share my craft room with my not-so-little quilt inspector. His name is Peejers and he loves it up there.
