My New Sewing Room is Almost Ready!

My husband is very busy at work putting up woodwork for me.  He has even found that my Ott-Lite works great when things are a little dark.  I'm wondering if I will have to hide my light in the near future?  Dean has found that he likes quite a few of my quilting tools since we've been remodeling.  He has even been known to "borrow" my quilt rulers.  So to fix that problem--I bought him a new tape measure :) 

I never thought that trying to find a stud in the wall would be so difficult!  We even had a high tech stud finder and I think it was confused.  We had drilled 4 holes before we found a stud.  The low tech method ended up helping us find a stud.  Dean fished a bent bailing wire through the wall and eventually figured out where the stud was located.  We were only off an inch--so close, but so far!

So that is what we did on a snowy Sunday afternoon.  I've been working on Christmas presents and will be posting on them after Christmas.
  Sorry Jenny and Emily--you will have to wait to find out what I've been working on  :)

Happy Quilting!

You are not the only one who drilled many holes to find a stud , regardless of the price of the electronic stud finders, they all work on the same concept and they all fail and give fade readings, the best stud finder that you need to try is so simple and work like magic, it's an award winning stud finder, once you try it you will see how easy it is , no batteries no electronics , no marks on wall, you can see it in action at :
