    Absolutely I don't mind at all! That's partly the reason I posted all the pics. Also, I admit, to show off a bit! :mrgreen: :lol:
    Enjoy the new room...I am very jelous...Where are you going to use your lovely door cover from the old house?
    Ha ha! Did you spot that in the bag under my desk, Susie? :oops: The problem is that the ceilings in France were extra high and here they're quite low as the main house is a cottage. Hans (DH) is just over 6' and only just misses his head. I told him he can never wear his high heels indoors! :lol: So the curtain won't fit the front door here, unless I cut a few feet off it and that would be a shame! We might hang it in the school room across the door into the living room as the ceiling is higher here, but we haven't got round to measuring up yet. As I used the Thermore wadding, it wouldn't really work as a bed quilt. :-D
    That door quilt was fabulous! It needs a new home! The sewing room door would be a great location...

    Gosh yes - and I'm such a country bumpkin, I'd end up up a lamp post like Crocodile Dundee! :lol:

    Here's an idea for ya....fly into DC, I"ll come get you. We can come back here and you can help me do my room, then we do a roadtrip to Joanne's house. But, by the time we get my room done, she'd be back in Arizona lol

    What a wonder-full room K! Lots of terrific ideas...I am planning a trip to Ikea soon, for a new couch & chair. I have a feeling a few more things may be added to that list now.

    Happy quilting!!!!

    Ooooh, what a luscious room! Yum! I attended a one room school in Minnesota, and taught my first year in one just south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin next to the freeway! It would make a great quilt shop!

    I sew in my living room because I live alone, and it is MY house! But my space is not organized like yours. I am really envious!

    Welcome back, missed you.

    Good on you!!!! It's a truly fabulous space and it would be even if you were not coming from a teeny sewing space in France. What a marvelous upgrade, don't ya think? I'm really tickled pink for you.

    It's a quilters dream come true, so well planned. Did you install the cork floor or did it come with the building? Also what type of lighting do you have for night sewing? Are you planning on any on-site tours, sounds like several of us would love to see it! Thanks for sharing.
