    No way!! There has been an official change of use application made to the local town Hall...the only smell in there is the lovely scent of fabric and machine oil.....lol!!

    Thanks for the compliments on the quilt quilt4u, but just in case you missed the beginning.....this is just in the evenings..I have taken over the bedroom but the lighting is poor....so I trundled by table along abit into the bathroom as it has great lighting in there :roll:

    It will be all back into the bedroom before bed which should be soon seeing as it is now 3.15am here!! (Just as well by sewing table is on wheels :wink: )

    Do they not allow electrical outlets in the bathroom in the UK? My boss is having one of his bathrooms remodeled & was telling me today that they added an outlet by the second sink! And the new marble or granite (he can't remember what his wife picked) counter top will be like 90 inches long!!! Bet there would be LOTS of room to quilt in there :lol: :lol:

    No, they haven't allowed electric sockets for as long as I remember in the U.K. health and safety issues...hairdryers and baths etc., do they in The states??? :shock:

    Glad I gave all you guys and gals a giggle...I certainly gave myself a good laugh all evening :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I only have one bathroom but it has 3 electrical sockets. How do you blowdry your hair? Or use an electric razor?

    I love your new quilting room. It gives me creative thinking, maybe I'll move my kitchen table into the living room for better lighting...

    As for electrical in the bathroom you can have as long as it is GFI so you won't get electricuted.

    Love the pics.

    In the U.K. you are not allowed any outlets whatsoever apart from a shaver socket which has lower ampage and you have to dry your hair at your dressing table in your bedroom or wherever...here in Spain anything goes..... :lol:

    Heres a couple of pictures of where I sew through the day when I can see!!

    The best thing I bought is grow light bulbs. They are great. I have a three light stick lamp and it has bendable things on eACH LIGHT. great light, turns night to day without much expense.

    Just curious...how many rooms in this house. It looked big in the pictures :D
