    I moved to Flint,MI almost 1 month ago, and today I get to go to the garage and pull out everything marked "sewing room". I have a 8 by 10 room, with a twin bed to work around,I have painted it a fresh, bright, creative green, and the soon to be hubby bought me some storage containers and shelving. But today is the day, and I am setting a goal, it WILL be done within 1 week from today. Not too much preasure, right? Ok, Im going out there, this isnt going to be pretty, wish me luck, I have a feeling Im going to need it!

    This is going to be a fun project! Make sure you take pics, I did and cannot believe how much my room has changed in a year and a half. It was very tidy, once upon a time.....

    Kathy N, have you been to the quilt shop in South Lyon? It was an old bank back in the day. They have tons of fabric, and alot of yummy wools! Brighton is very nice, I have been thru there a few times but it was many years ago.

    Go for it. and when it gets a little to much. Keep telling yourself I get to quilt right after it. I know I just redid my room An 7 by 9 and it took two weeks. Good luck.

    Thanks for the support, you all are great :D It is 7:50am, Iam getting ready to go up the stairs, turn on the radio and kick most of this out. I have to say I just ache in places I didnt know could ache so bad. And I swear, if I ever move again, the next place will have NO STAIRS! Trying to shove, cram and pack a living room into a 9x10 room with a twin bed is frustrating. Yes, my living room was my sewing room, I lived alone and anytime anyone came over, we always sat at the kitchen table and consumed lots of coffee, so i figured, why not.I must say, it was very cool.ok, smoke break is over( I only smoke in the kitchen with the exhaust fan on) its time to go.
