    i disagree. not too many, at all. each pictures shows something different. if i had a room like that i'd want to show off every nook and cranny, too. there's nothing to fix. :wink:

    Great quilt room!!!

    I have a question-in the picture of the left wall (the wet pic where Loretta has been drooling over the pink star!) you have a rod with some kind of clamps hanging from it. I love it-it looks like you have fabric and patterns "clothespinned" and hanging there. Is this a curtain rod? What is the fabric clamped with? I think this is a great idea. Where did you come up with it? Can you give me more details and maybe a close up pic? Thanks!!!

    Marcia....good eyes..yes this is a curtain rod and on that is the clip rings that are for the round circle things you sew on curtains...didn't like how hard they were to push so I found these clippy things with magnets on them that are real easy to open and don't leave to bad pinch marks l hope the pictures are close enough for you if not I'll try again oh I found these at the dollar store :D

    THANKS I love it!! The close up pictures are great and I am definately going to have to steal your idea. This is just one of the reasons I love this board-there are so many great ideas out there and you are all so willing to share yours. Thanks again!!!

    I am going to surprise all of you and make all of you envious with my sewing room!

    Er, that is when I set it up.

    I like to sew with my mom. So, I throw everything in the car and drive up.

    But, I have a basement that after some overhauling will be my new sewing room.

    But, that's months away. In the meantime, I'm admire how you make the most of your space and keep organized. You're a real pro!
