Does anyone else use their dining room as their sewing room? I’ve heard it’s a pretty common setup; personally, we don’t use our dining room as much as we could for its original purpose. I have a couple of rooms upstairs that I could turn into a full-time sewing room but this suits me better in terms of activity in the house.
That works out well as long as I don’t need a dining room, right? Every so often though, we have plans for a larger crowd for dinner, and Sunday evening was one of those times. It didn’t take long to move the table back and take out the sewing machine. The upside of this arrangement is I know the room is going to get a complete cleaning every so often!
This keeps me really organized, so for now I’ll occasionally use my sewing room as the dining room. The family calls it the sewing room instead of the dining room, so that works for me too.
As a result of getting ready for dinner, I did not get started on my Splendid Sampler block yesterday (and it looks like a really fun one, including crochet!). Sometimes I also get an early start on the Bloom sew-along but I didn’t get to that either. So much for being ahead last week on my quilt projects!
