    My husband decides to renovate my sewing room!!! In his infinite wisdom he decided I need a bigger room, which is wonderful....BUT...I am busy making blocks and I have projects laying out to work on!!!

    When I pointed this out to him, he said no problem...he put plastic up around my sewing room so that he can rip walls out, put up new ones and it will not interfere with my creativity as he put it!! I feel like I am living in a bubble when I'm in there now!!! LOL

    I am forever destined to live in a construction zone for the next few weeks! Could be interesting when he starts rewiring everything!! Yikes!!! lol

    And keep a long extension cord handy for when that electrical work starts :wink: Sounds like it will be wonderful when finished, you just gotta hang in there.

    At least he's thinking of you by wanting you to have a nice space!
    So, does this mean MORE painting for you? lol

    Noooo I am NOT painting anymore!! Because in order to paint, it would mean I have to do the mud on the drywall seams and I refuse! LOL

    Congratulations, I think! I know what you are in for, but the results should be wonderful. As long as he lets you work in the bubble, enjoy! :lol:

    We want to see pictures of your plastic bubble! And of course we'll want to see pictures of the finished room, too.

    You never stop a man who wants to give you a bigger sewing room. It keeps him busy. You are soooo lucky!

    Yes we just finished this little project this spring. It is a long and difficult process but the results are wonderful. Drywall dust though goes everywhere. I would get a large supply of plastic bags for all of your stuff. Even behind plastic walls it will get dusty.

    Oh I feel for you with all the mess! But it is always worth it in the end. I'm still sewing in the kitchen so I envy your new space!

    all this talk of dust, has me scratching my nose :lol:
    Well, Maride has a good point...don't hinder a man that wants to give you a bigger sewing room!
    I have a lot of stuff in my cave, but I have to be able to see all around me...you probably feel like one of those cubicle workers!
    Can't wait to see the 'after'. :D

    We'll just call you 'bubble girl' or 'girl in the bubble'. I think both of those titles were movies hahahhaha.

    That's really sweet of your Husband to want to give you a bigger better sewing space. I'm sorry that will make sewing right now, not so fun, but He is thinking of you and wanting to do something for you!!!
    Tell him that it would be really really special if he did all the mud work and painted the walls the color you want for you!!!

    It would be nice if it could go from "thinking about" to "done" and skip all the mess in the middle.

    Will he help you stow everything so it doesn't get dusty?

    So my first thought was - when aren't you working on a project?! LOL! With all the great things we see from you, you must always be under construction (quilts I mean, not walls!)
    Congrats on the new space to be.
