    My son just moved back out, so we changed a bunch of rooms around.... Moved our bedroom downstairs, grandkids get my old sewing room back for their toys, the spare bed, and I get our old room for my new sewing room! Even with our kids helping, both DH & I were hardly moving when we were done. lol!!!! Well, almost done anyways, still a bit more to do.

    Still haven't gone through and sorted it all yet...

    My old oak table which I used to use fell apart while moving it, so now I have these. We had one, bought another. :)

    It looks great! I wish I had an actual room for my sewing. I've taken over the dining room. I don't have enough storage space though. I love Blu!

    Thanks Jen!! :D I do love it! I had my dining room table for sewing when my kids were younger too! Which was good as I was right in the middle of them all! :D
    All the poor pets were so confused over the room changes! Our dog Squeakers had such a look of shock on her face, over our bedroom being changed! lol!!!! Took her a couple of days to get used to it!

    Great room - enjoy it! You're very lucky, I share my room with the guest bedroom which is very, very tiny!

    Don't you just love getting your space back. Your room looks great. Many happy hours in there.

    My DS just moved back after graduating from college. Instead of giving up the largest bedroom (now my sewing room), I moved from the middle bedroom to the smallest. (He has more junk than I do in one place). I'll sleep on the couch if I can keep my sewing room.

    Does that mean you can get away with making smaller quilts Diana?
    Well done for all your efforts, I am sure you will bless the day you put in all that work and got your own space.

    You have a great work area -- and I love the fact that it's so warm and inviting with the personal touches like the pictures and baby bed. You make me think that I should put up more of my favorite family pictures and possibly get more organized in my sewing room. One of these decades, perhaps I will. THEN I'll post pictures! :lol:

    Thanks LaceLady! I do feel very blessed to have my room, and all the goodies! I sometimes stand in the doorway, just looking at it. Sigh.... :-)

    Thank you Ducky!! The two pictures, which I love, were there when it was my bedroom, and I decided to keep them there.
    Post photos of your room anyways!!! Doesn't matter if it's messy, all of ours are! - mine hasn't had any sewing done in it yet! Am going to correct that matter today! lol!!!!!
