    A last, a place to quilt!

    My DH finally finished off our lower level and gave it all to me! We are both newly retired and I think he got tired of listening to my sewing machine during his TV shows! We didn't need another family room-so it is all mine for me and my quilting friends.

    And then if I need to think something over I hit the exercise machines-works every time!

    Wow! Really wonderful. I love your ironing table. So much more practical than a standard ironing board. Heck, I love all of it. Way to go, hubby!

    Awesome! I have to say when only son graduated college then bought his own house I was feeling a lil "empty nesty"...then dh and I decided to send pool table and other game room stuff with son. I then inherited a lot of room.. I love having my own areas to spread out and quilt in. Hubby has his workshop and I have mine, so to speak..lol. Enjoy yours...rooms AND hubby!!

    What a pleasure to look at. Bet it's a real joy to have your own space --your own HUGE space! I love the clean white cabinets and your big tables!

    Wonderful! But do you ever go upstairs? Surely would be easy to just hibernate there!

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. However, remember the size of the room has nothing to do with the quality of the quilt! I still consider myself a confident beginner. I have a good friend who sews award winning quilts on a TV tray! I hope someday I can do something half as good. Yes, I am very lucky to have my DH who is my high school sweetheart and has always been very supportive!
    Thanks again,
