    I LOST my sewing room… :cry: ..The room where I was sooooo happy to “play” all day, where my gal pals came to sew with me (okay, it was cramped, but still fun). The place I was happy to just be in…I’ve been so sad without it for the past several months that I haven’t completed anything, heck I’ve barely sewn anything…

    So what did I do? I pulled myself out of my frunk and took over the formal living and dining rooms! As Carol Doak once said, “Who needs those anyway?” :wink: We tore the carpet out of both rooms, threw down temporary floor cover, and then moved all the fun in! Now I have space to stretch out, and room to have a couple friends sewing at once. And… and I’ll have a much larger design wall soon!

    I’m doing a happy dance! :-D

    I really want to do the same thing, but my dh is slightly resistant. I say slightly because I'm getting a Juki with frame and he has agreed to put it in the living room.

    This will get my foot in the door.

    LOL!

    Happy dance! I've thought about taking over the living room several times. I watch tv in my sewing room, the kid has one in his room, and SO watches in his office. We use the living room about once a month.

    I am glad that you have a place to sew.

    The other day I had a quilt laid out on my living room floor. I told my husband I would pick it up before we went to bed. He said "Why, we don't use that room anyway." So it is still there.

    Athomesewing,
    Your original sewing room has been so inspirational! I came across picturs of it over a year ago when I was finally able to create a dedicated sewing space in my home. I incorporated a few of your ideas along the way, including the white cabinet for fabric, and having a dedicated spot to hang each ruler on my pegboard. Good luck with the bigger space!

    Yahoo! So happy for you!!! I took over the dining room last October & have never been so happy. I guess I didn't really like being squirreled away at the back of the house all by myself with no TV. Just think how much closer you are to the kitchen now! Snacks are right at hand anytime!. Coffee pot right there, too. Lunch for the girls - no biggie.

    Congratulations!

    Keep on dancing, I agree with the fact that a formal dining room is a waste of space in any home that houses a quilter. Quilters don't have time to prepare formal dinners. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Awww, thank you JenniePenny! The ruler board has found a new home, although I did have to modify it as I didn't have a door handy, but it's still a good thing!
