I am taking you "experienced" bloggers advice and posting some pictures. They are of my "clean" sewing room. It's funny, when I decided to take over my dining room and move from a very small bedroom, it seemed like I had loads of space. Then I immediately outgrew that space and was wandering through the house looking from more. After all, your house is suppose to meet your needs--right. I am not a "traditional" sort---so was wondering, do I really need a living room? my husband had taken over my old sewing area for his "hobby"-TV room. Does he really need that?!?

Needless to say, I was forced to try to organize more--then I purchased Harriet with a 12 foot table no less. I am posting pictures of my clean sewing room, BUT the living room has bins I have got to get in after delivery and set up. Hopefully I can put them below the table. There was a lot of discussion on one web group about the state of our sewing rooms, so thought I would post my "neat" pictures first.-----plus I am testing out and seeing if I can do this.

Hope it works!

Hugs and have a good night!


My First Post

I have really gotten into reading the daily post of quilters and decided---why not? I don't know whether anyone will even read what I have to say, but I have always liked the idea of a journal---why not have one about what I really like to do --- which is quilting!

I plan to try to post at least every other day---a realistic goal I think! and include a few personal things, but mostly quilting things.

If I find this isn't going to be something I can do---then all I have to do is click a button right!

I guess I should introduce myself---

I have been quilting seriously for about 10 years or so (I really don't know), but I really started when I found out I was going to be a Grandmother for the first time---14 years ago. I am a L/D nurse who also teaches nursing part-time. I have five adult children (all of whom I really like and her are successfully doing their "own thing") and 4 grandchildren. I have been married for a long time----soon to be 33 years to a man who supports my quilting hobby to the max. I currently live in TN although my husband and I grew up in Oklahoma--moved to Chicago---and then Jacksonville, FL before settling here to be near 3 of my Grandchildren.

I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of a Gammill Premier that I plan to put to good use. My current worry is whether it will fit into my sewing space, formerly my formal dining room. I plan to post pictures later this afternoon.

I hope this will be fun for me and fun to those of you who will read it.

More later!
