    Now tell me - How many of you have I heard tell the same story about all your quilting paraphenalia taking over the house....well check out my latest sewing room...I had recently taken over one of the bedrooms, balancing one single bed on top of the other to give me lots of space, but the lighting is really soft (Until taking up quilting I HATED bright lights!!) and tonight I had a brainwave..........talk about sitting on the throne :lol: :roll: :!:

    The 'throne' isn't that comfortable..but very convenient!!

    Except it doesn't leave you much room to move around and stretch. I guess it isn't the only one in the house either!! :lol: It also does not look like a very comfortable chair. I think you need to buy a lamp or two!!!

    Gayle ... I have sewing lamps but they get in the way when you are swinging the quilt about..and I am really in the mood this evening to get stuck in to the quilting...so a gal has to improvise!! :lol:

    Izy...too funny. And I thought I was the only creative one..I used to sew on top of the washer in the laundry room! I think yours is a better idea (unless you have only a 1 seater and someone else has to use it)..If I was "on a roll"..they'd just have to wait!!

    For the 'first' time (seeing as I have to clean them all) - I am glad we have so many bathrooms.... :roll:

    Puts a whole new meaning to 'on a roll' and you get them 'quilted' too!!! :lol:

    Patrice as you can see I have already cleared out all unnecessary items...I have been using the ironing board in there in the evenings...yes in Spain they still allow electric sockets in bathrooms...right next to the sinks so I could fit in a little fridge........No phone line.....but a big DO NOT DISTURB sign would be good:roll:

    Morning Terri...do you know thats a great idea, I was just thinking who's idea was it to put the shower blocks so close to the loo, I can't really get my table up close enough because of THAT bad design..... :shock:

    Its great for singing along in there too - great acoustics as its all tiled lol!!

    Spectacular! And you don't have to go far for potty breaks. Brew some coffee or pour some wine! There's quilting to be done!
