Oh Beverly, how I envy you for your sewing room. Simply the fact that you have one, and then such a nice one, and such great gear! See me pea-green with envy! ;-)

Sorry for making you envoius... really! :-}
After our second child was born, I had to give up the large bedroom I had been using as my sewing space in our first little house. We moved my sewing room into the smaller bedroom and put the two girls in the larger one. That only lasted about 8 months, we realized we had to have more space.
This house was an immediate hit, because it had a large mostly unfinished daylight basement. The one room which was finished was the laundry room, a good sized (12'X15') room with hard-surface flooring. Perfect! It was even rough-plumbed for a third bathroom right next door (since finished). My machines are on either end, the ironing board is on the third wall, under the window, and the washer-dryer-deep-sink share the fourth wall. I have a cutting table in the middle, with two storage cabinets underneath, and I put up shelves all around the perimeter years ago, to hold stash and stuff.
MY DH almost did not go for this house, because the garage was a little smaller than in our original house, but then he realized I do a LOT more work in my sewing space than he ever did in the garage. ;-D
I count myself very lucky, I now have not only my downstairs (real) sewing space, but, (since the girls grew up and moved away) two spare bedrooms upstairs, which I have taken over for my computer/office and my machine embroidery room. I do keep an inflatable queen bed in the embroidery room in case I have sleep-over guests. :-D
The rest of that large unfinished basement is still unfinished, after all these years, and contains overflow "stuff". :-( I keep hoping I'll find the will to clear it out and get it finished, it would be such a wonderful family room, with an extra kitchen, and a fourth bedroom.

Thanks! The result of 56+ years of collecting.
I realized as I was taking the pictures that I should probably burn them to CD and put it in a safe place in case I ever need to prove what I have for insurance purposes. I would really hate to have to start all over again!

Yeah, I bet you are! ;->
Ah, your dear late husband obviously knew what was good for him. ;->
OK, your house is a bleedin' fully fledged Sewing Paradise! You know, you could hold weekend classes in pattern matching, grading paper patterns or whatever you choose to share of your plethora of sewing wisdom with a few chosen ones in person. Well, I guess you don't need the money so you don't have to bother to take in ignoramuses to spoil your precious time. ;-)
U. - green as a grasshopper by now; peas would envy me my colour. ;-)

Hugs, dear Ursula. ;-D

He benefited a great deal over the years, I made clothes, car accessories, hunting and fishing gear, etc. for him.

And, that Chosen One (DGD) appreciates her opportuniy. I really do not have the teaching skills or patience to take on paying clients, and I suspect doing so would take some of the joy out of it (for me). That is the same readon I never tried to establish a sewing business. It works for me to sew for only a select few people I love.

Oh, dear, you know that it's only friendly banter. No need for hugs, although I like them. ;-)
What comes instantly to my mind is that beautiful three-piece suit with the bright red lining you donated to the museum. Well, you did, didn't you?
Yes, I know what you mean. No patience with stoopids, unless they are your favourite grandchildren and not stupid at all. ;-) You know, I wonder how Kate manages to keep her joy in sewing, with all her ailments and the time pressure she sometimes experiences in her business. I couldn't do it for a living, I guess, although teaching Jennifer was kind of fun. Did I mention that she went to Sweden with her husband and visited on Thursday? She still visits those Cosplay cons but doesn't sew as much as she did. She told me that it wasn't what makes her happy, currently, she's more into sports. Although she told me of a project for a Con next year some time and asked a bit about how to.
Hah, I knew you'd quote her... ;-) If nothing lives of her after her, that quote will, and probably every anorexic will have it on her trembling, dying lips. If you can't be rich, you can at least starve yourself... ;-> Yes, one can always be a bit richer but think of the price... ;-)
