    As promised, I finally am posting photos of my dream sewing studio. We built our dream (retirement) home four years ago. It is a rambler walk-out on a lake in SW Minnesota. It has 2500 square feet on each of its two levels. The lower level is yet unfinished. However, my sewing studio is in lower level. It takes up nearly a third of the entire lower level. The studio is completed, and is about 20 feet by 20 feet square. The room behind the studio is about the same size and is finished, but still needs a home quilting set-up (with a 10 ft. table) for me to be able to consider it done. Hopefully, when I finish school--we can get that so I can quilt my own tops. The photos are of the actual studio facing the lake.

    Sewing area (sorry didn't use flash)--have a great little pull out that I can cut and iron at until the top gets to large!

    Gosh--barely got one photo posted and you were there! Thank you for the compliments. It took absolutely years to get what I wanted in terms of space.
    Definitely a view or lots of light (at the very least is the way to go!)
    Thank you again. You're very sweet!

    Actually, when we get around to completing the lower level, the coffee pot will residfe right behind the wet bar we plan to put in!
    Right now, I have a hot water pot I use for tea in my room. Would you like to join me for a cup?

    Thank you so much!
    Definitely living on a lake is a wonderful thing.
    I admit it. I am a very spoiled lady!
    The DH catches walleyes out there regularly.
    Come visit whenever you'd like.

    Thank you so much Maia...and not just for the compliments on the sewing room but also the encouragement about pursuing the BSN.
    And yes, I have a Pfaff 7530 which I absolutely adore. I've sewn on it for years (with never a problem, I might add). I also own the 7570, complete with all the embroidery stuff but rarely use it with school being my focus. Once I'm finished with school, the 7570 will sit to the left of the computer (where all the textbooks hang out now), so that I can embroider at the same time I'm piecing a quilt top.
    Again TY!
