    It's small-maybe 7'x10'. But, it's cozy. I don't have a design wall, but other than that, it works. This room is right off the kitchen, so I use the table there to cut. I could move upstairs--convert a bedroom to my quilting room, but it might be lonely up there. :wink:

    Jelly rolls? Hmm--what are they? I've never purchased one. Are they strips?? I cut all those babies. :wink: I've purchased a few fat quarters, but stick to yardage 98% of the time. The one empty rung will be filled soon--I have a few more to cut up for another floral log cabin.

    Just wonderful, I'm drooling over the 'high end' thread...love it! Your space is organized! And I'm jealous that you are downstairs close to the kitchen..my other love! I'm into cooking and baking and the kitchen is the hub for me. I've converted my guest room into my sewing room/guest room. But I'm thinking of getting rid of the bed and just have my sewing room. I do have an aerobed and a sofa bed downstairs...so guests would have a place to lay their heads.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    MaryAnna--I vote to get rid of the bed!! :-D Since both kids are in college, I can leave the table full of sewing stuff whenever I need to. Hubby doesn't mind. It's handy. Plus, I can take a break to read emails--and lunch doesn't take any time away from my project. :lol:

    sewnsewer--that rocking chair was made by my grandmother's brother for her. Her name is on it. Since I'm the only granddaughter to sew, I was honored to receive it.

    skj--the ladders came from my son's antique shop--when he had it at age 13-17 (He started on bikes at age 10, now buys/sells cars.) One is oak, the others pine. I love to use strips--so decided these worked well. I cover the rungs with fabric. My hubby took the last one in the shower with him to get it clean. :wink:

    Love it barnbum! Great space, and so colorful! How do you keep the ladders up? Are the just set up next to the wall, or do you have something holding them there?
    That is so cool, I think I will find a space for a ladder too!

    I am jealous of not only your sewing room but your stash as well. Can't wait to see the completed project on your ironing board

    You have a nice area to sew and create. How long have you been quilting? You have lots of fabric!

    Great looking room Karla. Love your ladders - have been looking for one at the auctions, but haven't seen any yet. You are so organized and productive.

    How long have you been quilting? You have lots of fabric!
    About 16 years. There are a few issues: 1. I tend to make scrappy projects without the stash--and that makes a lot of stash. 2. I used to buy books when I was stressed, now I buy fabric. 3. For so many years we were so careful about every penny spent--now that's paid off--so I can buy fabric more freely. I told my husband I feel like it's my very merry un-birthday every time I buy fabric. I will use it all--I will. :wink: My rule now is nothing gets purchased unless I know exactly what it's for. The project ideas come a lot faster than I can get the projects done. I need to be retired. :roll:

    Tell us about the quilt on the ironing board.......
    I will... when I post them. :wink: It's my own design and every piece has a purpose/reason. There are four tops nearly done...then I hope to get them quilted this week. Maybe.

    Joanne's--on sale at Christmas time...it was under my tree. I bought it for hubby to give me. :lol: If I remember correctly, it was $70 for all that!! It's the kind my machine likes best.
