    Ok ladies, it is a mess, but it is my extra small space, but I love it have out grown it. I want a quilting frame, but as you can see it won't fit in here. So I am waiting for my son to move out so I can have his room. This was a screened in back porch that, and I mean I put together, so raw boards and all. and I am no carpenter. But Can you see the birds out my window? A small piece of beauty out my sewing room window.

    I thought mine was crowded...you win, lol. I have a quilting frame in my room, it is very crowded but I have been unable to talk my dh into giving up his space! Sometimes he is so inconsiderate, lol.

    Thank you ladies. I was in a very small bedroom with only a Bernina deco 650, and now I have all these machines, and now no space again. But I love I can shut the door and company can't see it. I can straighten it up and then start a quilt and hummmmm out the window organization went. I really look so forward to seeing and listening to you ladies. Can't wait to get home and look at new post., Really ladies thanks

    Ok, I will. And listen my daughter lives in Booneville, which is about 2 hrs from Columbus, and they have a really old house, but it is loaded with quilts and quilt fabric, very reasonable. I usually spend around $100, when I get back to the car, I say, I can't believe I did that, but I am always happy that I did, and we could go up there too. and then there is a very nice shop in Dekalb, ms and that is about hummm 1 hr going toward meridian, and it is stacked to the very top ceiling with fabric, but her fabric is $6-$12 a yrd, but great selection also. let me know. I work Do you?

    It is so wonderful to have a space, big or small, where you can leave things out.

    That sound like fun. I'm lucky not to have to work. I have sewed for others for years, but now do as I please with my time. We have to get together after my Mom goes home from her spring visit (in about 6 weeks). I'm adding you to my "Buddy List" if that's ok with you.
