    Yes, I agree with them Change the rooms around. Get a bigger room for sewing and smaller for office. Let us know what you decide and post pics
    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.

    My husband was out patching skylights for 2 different people this weekend. They are older and need replaced but in the meantime it is patch and pray. Why put a hole in a perfectly good roof? Skylights are nothing but trouble 10 to 15 years ( if that long) down the road.

    I think this is relative to how they are put in in the first place. My BIL has skylights that have been in place since the 80s with no problems. He checks them every year just like he checks out shingles, chimney ect.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    My sewing room is 10 x 12 so I had to get creative as well (there are pictures of mine on the board somewhere...) but one of the best ideas came from my dad. He built me my sewing tables and on one of them he put in a drop leaf using piano hinge. Its great becasue I colapse it when I don't need it but extend it when I have to FMQ or do cutting or whatever. You can add a cutting mat to it and make it super functional.
