    I vote for a door on one side of the room or the other! Ignore me and have lots of fun in your new space!

    It would not have taken me that long to take over this last room. I would have started the moment he walked out with the last item. Our oldest Granddaughter has moved out and I took over her room the very next day.

    I just expanded into my "second" sewing room in February, so I know how excited you are! While I adore having this second room, some day my dream is to have EVERYTHING in one room, lol.

    Your project sounds great!! I did that a few years ago( when kids were gone) then got grandkid and he just moved to his own house..when he came he dumped my stuff and it really got to be a mess for awhile.. then friends came for a day and we moved everything to the bottom floor of our house..so good but I never get it all clean anymore. my scraps are taking over again..(sounds neg. today..maybe because we are getting lots of snow again) I love the snow but sometimes enough is enough already :0..we need more green! Happy sewing!

    Good for you. I don't have a room especially for quilting but I recently took over a small part of the sunroom for my sewing machine, ironing board and cutting table. I put up a shelf in the dining room for all of my fabrics. better than having it stored in various tubs. post photos when you are done

    I think it sounds like a great idea - I live in a two roomed flat with a bathroom/laundry, and I use the whole lot to sew in as well...lol!

    Sounds terrific!

    I have 2 small rooms, one being the FORMER dining room which is 8'7"x7'2"
    and my youngest daughters former bedroom which is my fabric room.

    Since we only live in a 2 bedroom condo and I have NO living room furniture
    I am assured that I can't and don't get overnight guests. I learned long ago
    that it is just easier NOT to have overnight guests because they "complain"
    about my cats. Which I am trul sorry they have issues, but it is my cats HOME
    not theirs.

    How great for you. Sounds like you have a good place for a retreat-let the quilters stay in the guest house and fifth wheel. Sounds like fun, fun.

    Ms. nygal, I would like to know the name of your quilt in your avatar and did you make it......or is it a quilt in a show? To me it looks difficult; nice colors I like it.

    I agree, knock out the walls. Wish I could, I would have double the space, but we don't plan on being here but another yr or so or I would. Also, I put would put that island on wheels, mine is permanent to the floor and I wish I could move it at times. of course, these are just some idol suggestions. have fun and enjoy your new digs!
