Size:  1.85 MBHere is as far as we got today getting cabinets, bookcases, fridge and some kits in. Will keep updating as things get put out there. It was a garage that had a lot of junk in it till I decided to remodel and I love it. Have a blue indoor/outdoor carpet on the concrete floor. My daughter from WY is here helping me out moving stuff in. I have another sewing cabinet in my living room to go out plus a cutting table and a storage cabinet bought them reasonable instead if brand new. Only new one I bought is housing my brother innovis 3000. I am having a ramp built by someone who does that type of work. Backed up to mid October

    I also have an “original ScrapBox” to get moved in. Hopefully it gets in there tomorrow, had just purchased the big cabinet u see in there that was just delivered this past Tuesday. I bought my machines n the koala cabinets from a lady in Bismarck who is a good friend of mine now.

    What a nice huge space! Now maybe you need a heater so you can work in the wintertime. I have She-shed envy!

    It looks fantastic! Don't worry about getting it right the first time - I moved into my sewing room 12 years ago and still make changes. And each change is fun and exciting.

    I wished this was all my stuff. I have lots of fabric to make its way to the new home. Plus lots of organizing yet and still trying to get back on my feet after spending most of the summer in hospital and a rehab home

    So glad you are home and able to get yourself back in shape AND set up a huge space to be your sewing room!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    You are truly blessed, you have your health back and now you have this fantastic space to make the most incredible sewing studio. How big does your desk open up to be? Is your space insulated for the winter? I am so excited for you. I'm in the process of updating my studio and I can't wait until everything is where I want it to be.

    I just step out from my kitchen. Yes it’s insulated for winter needs a furnace yet. The propane tank is out back. I am not really into “best shape” as I couldn’t wait to get out of rehab place. Too many elderly in there who were not really “here” anymore if u know what I mean. I didn’t want to be waited on so much that when I did get home I couldn’t do anything. I had two daughters and a grandson who helped to bring some of my stuff out. They’ll get a real shock when they get my fabric all in one place. I’ve been squirreling away fabri when I worked.

    I need to get a ramp installed going out the kitchen yet. Waiting on estimate. Need to go back inside bc bathroom is in there, unable to put even a portapotty (camper style) in there. Too short

    My sister came to visit over the weekend and we got quite a lot done. I’m played out from all the exercise putting it away. Am so glad she is so close 400 miles that she can come one weekend a month and we see. Will be so nice when all done
