Just my cat, because she climbs on everything. She's learned over the years not to go there. She also doesn't go into my bedroom. I have to get up and go to work in the mornings and hate having cat hair all over me. My grandkids know to only go in there when I'm in there. That's it. I don't eat while I'm sewing. If I have a drink its on a side table out of the way.

I keep my morning coffee on the other side of the room (and end up drinking it cold.) Other than that the only food or beverage I have is water in a capped bottle. I would not allow the Quilt Police...but unfortunately they live inside my head.

No restrictions...Mr. Boo (cat) finds his way up sometime during the day and falls asleep in a spot on the rug w/sun. Got to have my afternoon snack and tea.

My Quilting Room Rules

I'm in charge

No changing of my radio station if I'm listening to it, must have my classic rock and roll. Refer to rule #1 if you don't like it. Same goes if I've got classical music on or if I'm playing a CD.

If I'm listening to YouTube while I'm working, don't ask me to stop what I'm doing to look at a ten minute video of dogs or cats doing crazy stuff. Text me the link, I'll look at it later.

Leave all scissors, rotary cutters and box cutters alone. There's one pair of general use household scissors and a box cutter in the kitchen. If any of my scissors, rotary cutters or box cutters make it out of my quilting room, there will be a reckoning, LOL. (Only exception is if I hand off a pair of scissors to my fiance and tell him to go sharpen them.)

I can talk if I'm at the sewing machine, but if I'm at my cutting mat and I've got scissors or a rotary cutter in my hand and I'm not saying a word, be quiet, it means I'm measuring twice and cutting once. If I cut wrong, there will be a reckoning, LOL.

If coffee is made, it's required to bring me a fresh cup. Same goes for tea, especially if it's Earl Grey, I need my London Fog, thank you. Ice cold Pepsi, even better. No snacks that leaves dust, like Cheetos, Doritos, etc.

I have a very old, beat up and falling apart comforter in the floor for my dogs, they're allowed in with me as long as they keep themselves there. If I stumble over them twice or they suddenly drop my chair down because their head bumps the height control, they're banished until the next day.

If you want to come in and visit, that's fine, realize that long lags in the conversation is me trying to concentrate, I'll get to you when I'm to a point that I can. Don't be surprised if I have to ask what we were talking about in the first place.

Last but not least, if the ironing board is up, it means I'm seriously hip-deep in what I'm doing. Don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself at the ironing board with the iron in your hand. You came in to visit, that's fine, I might just put you to work ironing fabric, opening seams or pressing blocks.

I really don't ban anyone or thing from my sewing room. Any liquids have a cap on them. I don't have any pets (allergic) and my husband passed away, My two youngest grand daughters like to come and "sew" with me and that's ok. Other than that, I guess I'm pretty boring.

I sew/quilt completely for my own enjoyment so anything I want goes in my sewing room. If I were sewing items to sell I would probably take certain precautions like keeping my drink away from certain areas but I would still have my drink in the room.
