    Swapped spaces and loving it.

    Since I broke my foot in October I havenít been able to get up and down the steps to my quilting room. A few weeks ago hubby suggested moving my sewing room up to the main floor and moving the guest bedroom down to the lower level. All it took was me saying yes and he jumped right on it. He moved everything out and painted the room, installed a ceiling fan with lights, switched out all the light switches and outlets and moved all my quilting/craft stuff in. Then, he took me to IKEA and bought a couple desks to match one we got from son and DIL and Iím back in the saddle. I love my new space.

    What a great space--and give your hubby extra hugs from all your quilty friends. I'm sure you love being on the main level now where you can be close to him and all the conveniences, whether your foot is good or not. Are you all healed up now?

    Hmmmmm! My sewing room is in the basement too! Maybe if I broke my foot.....no wouldn't work. Didn't work when I had double knee replacement surgery!

    A little better everyday. Still can’t wear anything but a tennis shoe on that foot, but I’m walking again! Thank you for asking.
