    My DH is the same as yours with his building skills and it is so wonderful and supportive. I support his woodworking skills and love what he makes also. Win-win marriage.

    It's all mine!!! and the grandkids are not allowed in there, nor is my husband unless I want him to do something. Right now it is rather crowded as I have my 10' quilt frame set up, will be moving it into my husbands room when he is able to move it.

    Mine is a WIP, but it is mine, and everyone leaves me alone when I'm in there.

    What makes my room special is.... it's mine, just mine! No sharing as a guest room. I can decorate as I like, I put an embroidered Sunbonnet Children Valance up that I created as I love Sunbonnets. I play my favorite music, and have my doll collection in there with me. Everything else is all my sewing paraphernalia and my 2 machines including my grandma's 1924 treadle. I totally LOVE my room! :-D

    After years of asking for a sewing room I have my own. Of course single now and kids all grown but still love calling it "My sewing room"!

    I love having a whole closet to house my fabric. No one is allowed in the closet unless I am there to make sure the fabric for doll clothes or a little project aren't the $9+ fabric. You know what I mean. I have a cabinet that houses two of my singers and my Ott light. The cabinet is shut most of the summer when I am in the garden and open from cold weather till the end of cold weather. I have my computer in the room too. All of these things don't get moved unless I move them and that in itself is a pleasure. Of couse that also means if it is a mess, I did it!

    Well my sewing room is in my laundry room.It is about 22x20 and I have 2 6ft tables beside one another with my sewing table and embroidery table placed one end of those .Then I have a six shelf wire rack and 9 or ten BIG commercial drawers full of fabric.My accuquilt Go is on the shelf in front of the window and the cupboards are storage for my thread and (a few plastic dishes etc)The double door closet is where I put my wall when needed. Dh put a floresant light above my sewing tables and there is also two windows and another ceiling light with afan above the 2 6ft tables.It is my space and I love going there and doing my thing!Plus I can get my laundry done all at the same time :thumbup:

    I guess it is all mine, mess and all. I wish it had a door. At least I can do whatever I want in that room. I feel like it is my "girl cave".

    I love my room (not done yet) because it is mine and I can have what ever I want in there and I can arrange it to my liking. I also have some antiques with the new and love it. I have enough storage and I store some fabric downstairs. All my projects I can see that are in containers. I love it!! I can leave stuff out and not worry about putting things away if I am having company. It is heaven!!

    Because the room is mine! Not very big, but on main floor since I have fibro, makes life easier. Have 2 big south facing windows, and 2 east. Very quiet and peaceful. Good place for me to do my "therapy" crafts! :)

    I love the decor, all girlie girl. And everything is exactly the right height for me.

    Now the other thing that makes it special is that it is the hottest room in the house. I keep the window open all winter long and if I sew in the summer I need to set the AC in the house at 60 to keep my room 78.

    First I painted it deep turquoise, there are all kinds of things hanging on the walls that refer to quilting. Then all the bookcases filled with colorful fabric and books. I think my 4 year old granddaughter put it best. She said "Grammy it is a happy room" :thumbup:

    The DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door. When I'm in the zone, everyone knows to find it themself, make their own lunch(or dinner sometimes), that Mom is not availlable!

    It's the one place I can go to for peace & quiet, except for the machine noise, of course!

    Because I can touch, smell, and see all that color and think about the possibilities. It's a place to dream and plan and enjoy.

But I always love to hear how some of you have made your quilting rooms like your personal sanctuary and a place you love to be. I was curious what some you have added to or have done to your rooms that make them such a special place?
    First of all,is size, 15' x 20', a huge north picture window with lots of light and a resting spot for my eyes as I scope out the birds on the feeder outside the window, tv and tape player for those older ones and several Ott lamps for each machine. These old eyes don't see as well as they used to.

    My sewing room is a shrine of everyting in my life from when I was a little girl to present. Gifts from others, things I have made, stuff I just like to look at. There are interesting things sitting and hanging around everywhere! It's my room :)

    I love my sewing room because I share it with two of my calm cats they have thier own quilts to lay on plus they agree with me on everything and being by myself, but still being home in case I'm needed.

I am a huge fan of Abraham Lincoln, so I have my two favorite Lincoln portraits looking down on me as I create and sew! I love the organization of my little space, although I can't deny that I dream of the day when I might have a whole room to make my own. Never take it for granted, those of you who have the luxury of space!!
    I know that the 'fates' will align, and you , too get 'your space'. Most of us started right where you are. You will have, what we have, when it is time for you to have it. Make sure to tell us when you get it, and to post pictures. :thumbup:

    Its my own space. I can have all of me to me. I feel I can sew to my hearts content. I'm surrounded by my friends. Machines, fabric and notions.
