When we moved, I was so excited to have my own sewing room! The only thing is that when my husband is off in the evenings, we like to be in the same room. I always have either a treadle or hand crank sewing machine set up in my living room. Does it cause a mess in the living room? Yes. Do I care? Nope, it is easy to clean up when I am expecting someone, and if someone drops in, they can't expect a clean house.
I still use my sewing room, we can only get CBS in that room for some reason, so we spend Tuesdays in the sewing room watching NCIS and I get a lot done on Tuesdays!Do you have a machine set up in your living room too?
