I used to have a whole room to myself and the ferrett to play in but roommates have taken over so this has been my new area for about a year or so. It is a corner in our living room right before our bedroom door.

Carey, 

I started out on my dinning room table and graduated to our back porch when my husband enclosed it. Then when we built our cabin in KY and I would sew on vacation, I used a corner of the lving room and the cutting table was in the bedroom. We quilters/sewers do what we have to do to keep our sanity and feed our addiction. :-)

So true, well when I lived in Michigan in a real house small though it had a full basement with walkout to the backyard and that was my sewing area before this. I do miss the full room at times though. But when I started I did the same thing until we figured out how to build up and out with my stashes etc. in the living room eventually needed to find storage for the fabrics lol. Then it was a open dresser now it is a shoe box Im slowly moving into the wicker and the current projects are in the wheelable storage you see.

Everyone:  Great ideas.  It's really inspiring to see every one's spaces. Thanks so much for sharing

Mimi:  thanks for the tip on folding and storing fat quarters. 

Vivian:  I can picture a moose or two in your woods.  Even with the dim light, that has to be one of the greatest views! 

Patti:  I'm really worried about the batiks that I put in my leaf quilt.  I'm afraid they will bleed color.  I brought home the black batik that I bought at the retreat and  washed it in hot salt water and then hung it on my outside line in the hot sun.  That seemed to set the black.  I always wash fabric, but I didn't those batiks.  I guess I'm giving all of the PNW retreat girls a heads up.

Donna B.  Best of luck with you new space.  That's so exciting. And that Marge P has good ideas!

Maggie:  I might have the wrong girl here, but, I've seen all glass garage doors.  Wouldn't that be fun in your boudoir women's cave?  It might take winning the lottery tho!  LOL

Again thanks everyone.

White tail deer, elk, the occational bear and mule deer, but no moose in our area.  At least, not in my yard.

I didn't think batiks bled.  Do they?

Carey,

I'd love to have a basement.  One of these days. Carey, you are making due and that's what counts. At least you have an assigned area. I really like the idea of the wheelable storage.

Nancy:  I bought a red fat quarter last winter, and it bled.  The black I bought at the retreat also bled.  Soooooo --- I suppose some of those really bright leaves of mine may bleed.  I really feel bad about that!

This is the current opening up to the bonus room (aka sewing room) above the garage:

 

I hope you get another stairs.  How you  going to get a long arm up there?  Or even one of these heavy sewing machines.

Thanks for the heads up about the possible bleeding batiks.  I am going to wash my quilt the first time with that stuff that is supposed to set colors.  And if that doesn't work, there is the other stuff that's supposed to remove the stains caused by bleeding.

most of the batics I made my sisters quilt out of didn't bleed. the Bali Batics.  I used an unknown batic for the setting blocks and they bled.

Good advice for all of our leaf quilts, Patti.  Thanks.

I'll try this, but am not sure I'm doing it right! This is my sewing room with some of our critters. My husband made the shelving for me, and the cutting table and ironing board. They're 42" high, which is a comfortable height for me.
