    Nice space!
    Why would you want it clean and straightened out?
    I'll come play if you want. :)

    It went through a major remodel (removed an outside door and window - so while it was torn apart - I decided it needed new paint and removal of extra non-sewing stuff...

    Make a slight detour east and pick me up too. Your room looks big enough to hold all of us you lucky duck!

    In the first picture, is the a dolls bed to the right?

    yes, my daughter is almost 18 but not willing to give up her American Girl doll - hubby made the bed, I made the lace curtains and a tied quilt... she also won't give up her special barbies... so they are at home in the Quilt Cave also...

    You can swing by and pick me up too. If there's no room left in the car, just stuff me in the trunk with everyone's fabrics. (Don't blame me if your bags end up a tad lighter then they started the trip with!) :lol:

    Your quilt room is too clean. You need to get busy and toss around some scrap fabrics and drape your UFOs around, lay some batting out on the floor to "breathe"... ;)

    Very nice. Love the colors of your walls. I wish I had that much space in my sewing room. Maybe if I cleaned it up I would. Naaaa if I did that I wouldn't find anything. :mrgreen:
