    My daughter moved out and left her room a mess. I am not able to clean it so my dil is coming down to do it for me. My son is off friday so he is coming to finish painting it. My daughter painted 2 1/2 walls a light purple and then quit. The paint and pan are still there so he is going to finish it. My husband is going to take the woodwork down and resand it all for me. She got paint on someof it.

    I have an old dresser I found in a yardsale for $10 back last year. I am going to paint it and store material in it. I have an extra gift wrap holder and a shoe bag to hang to put supplies in as I accquire them. I am going to use my old desk with three drawers for my sewing table. I am also going to use a fold up table to use for when I need to cut from yardage for big projects like borders, etc. I shall finally have a room of my own after being here for almost 23 years. This is my Christmas present to me and all those I will help with my sewing. My stash is low, very low but I hope I can build over the years.

    My daughter in law is going to try to get pictures for me.

    How exciting :!: I know when I got my first studio(now that you have a designated space it is a studio) I was so excited that I didn't have to clean off my workspace to eat dinner. I can shut the door and I hear very little complaints. I don't listen anymore. Enjoy, enjoy. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Donna, do you know how lucky you are. You will have a perfectly CLEAN sewing room at Christmas. Mine is a total mess with all the projects I have going. I just aquired 3 new Gkids and now need to add at least 3 more projects . Love doing it but would also like a nice clean freshly painted room to work in. Have a wonderful Christmas. MNM

    Cool beans! Can't wait to see some pictures. Wish I had met you when I lived only 30 minutes away. I would have shared all the stuff I gave away in order to move to a smaller space. Nice Christmas gift for you and nice of your family to help you. Have fun!
