I'm not in the kitchen anymore...

When I started this blog I had taken over a small part of my kitchen as my quilting spot. I had everything except my fabric in my little corner of the kitchen and aptly named myself, Kitchen Quilter. Well I had to move from that home and into one that doesn't have a lot of room in the pocket size kitchen. The dining room and living room are one large long combination room and my quilting stuff was quickly taking over both spaces...plus we had just about stop eating at the table because my stuff took up half the table. In this little house I also had the largest bedroom. Three of my daughters share one room, it was a smaller than mine. Three days ago we decided to switch bedrooms around. My sons were staying in their own room, it's the smallest of the bedrooms, but there are only 2 boys in the room so it works. My oldest daughter has as odd shaped room that isn't really a bedroom but it works for her. I had the big room...a room without much storage.


The three middle girls were crammed into a mid size room with lots of storage.
We spent one day getting everything moved around and then I spent another day getting all my quilting stuff put away in actual drawers and in cabinets...including my fabric, it's out of the boxes and plastic totes for the first time.




Not a lot of fabric by some standards (mostly mine), but it's all put away in such an organized way...at least for me and I'm happy with it.


But I think I'm Bedroom Quilter now. I'm going to keep all my piecing work done in my little area of the bedroom, but I'll still be dragging everything to the dining room table when it's time to do some free motion work.

Just don't change the name of your blog, cause "Bedroom Quilter" sounds kinky. :)

☺ I didn't think of that, but yeah. I think I'll keep the same name. *laughing*

Good for you! I used to sew in the kitchen, too. It is all good where ever you do it.

Everything looks so organized. We do what we need to do. I share my sewing room with the extra bedroom, guest room. It is about a 11 x 13 room with a queen sized bed, but I have most of what I need.
