Yesterday began week 16 of our destruction/construction project began.  Needless to say it's been either a LONG or very short summer.  It pretty much seems to be a blur for me.  But things are beginning to wind down here on the home front.  My new sewing room was ready to move into yesterday.  There are still a couple of odds and ends to finish up, but everything from my "cozy" (small) sewing room is now in it's new home in the basement. 
Now for a few pictures........

Basement before (the dungeon!)
And now...........Our new (dry) basement with my new quilt cave-

There's still a few odds and ends to finish up, but it's pretty much done.  And there is plenty of room to spare.  I have reserved room for a longarm someday, but that will have to wait a while longer.  The budget for that went out the door about a month ago, so guess Nina and I will be quilting my quilts a while longer.  But that's OK, we make a pretty good team and I don't think she is ready for only doing piecing just yet. 
Well back to my new home.  I have a mitered border that is putting up a real fight and I have vowed to be the victor in this battle!
