    So sorry about the damage to your home. Your 'cave' is great, love that comfy looking desk chair.

    The Dresden is coming along beautifully. What a nice "different" take on an old favorite pattern. You have turned lemons into lemonade in your new cave! Sorry for the tragic circumstances - but look at what you have gained! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy it.

    Sorry about the house, but you have a nice sewing cave. I love that tie/shirt quilt that you have hanging up on the one wall. It makes for a great way to use up old ties.

    Your woman cave is beautiful. Enjoy.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Nevermind every cloud having a silver lining, yours was pure gold. The room is a joy and delight on the eye so I can just imagine how happy you must be working there. Enjoy eery second!

    Sometimes it takes a disaster to do the things you really want to do. So glad you have your own sewing space organized the way you want it to be.

    Such wonderful planning you made while waiting for restoration of the building. Every thing thought out carefully and placed where it is best used. Glad you have such a wonderful space to enjoy your quilting....and a sofa for hubby to relax when taxing work needs a break.

    Great room - cheery yellow walls, and lots of storage space are nice! Great idea about the ironing area -- I'm going to have to come up with something like that for my quilt room. Love the idea of pressing as you sit at the machine. Isn't this site absolutely wonderful for new ideas and enjoying others talents and creativity??

    Nice space and I LOVE your bow tie/shirt & tie quilt. I made a similar one for the principal at my kids grammar school years ago. He collects ties and loved the quilt.

    Beautiful job on you girl cave. My daughter has a big china hutch that she is giving me to use for fabric storage. Glad some one else has used one. I have a real problem having to drag out storage boxes to get fabric. in my sewing room that is the only way I can store fabric now. Even though they are mostly clear boxes ,I still have to stack them.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
