I finally found a top for my make shift sewing table. Now maybe I can actually get things organized and start sewing again. I’ve been a little scattered in the sewing dept. lately. I’ve been storing a china cabinet for my brother until he bought a house. He finally bought one and now so I needed to figure out where to store my growing stash and quilting/sewing tools. Back in February, I just happened upon a 50% off sale at Michaels on their craft room modular units and spent an entire weekend putting together materials for a cutting table. I ended up going back to get more because Lil Bee wanted to use her allowance to build an art station up in the loft area–which seemed like a win-win because I was getting her stuff out of my sewing room but she still drags everything downstairs to be at the kitchen table So there’s the cutting table up above-I only had to go to 5 different home improvement/craft stores to find MDF that was the right size for the top.
Another surprise is a pressing board that my brother made me as a thank you for storing his china cabinet. Isn’t it beautiful?
Other activities keeping me from sewing have been Drama Queen’s school play (which is now done), she has a small part in another play in a few weeks, and our 2 week Spring Break. We didn’t go anywhere and it snowed but we did take the kids to see Oz and I took the girls with my sister and nephew to Cookies and Canvas.
Have you ever been to Wine & Canvas? My sister has and she had a blast–we’ve decided that we definitely need to do that as a girls night sometime this summer. I saw that they even had a painting that looked like my little Stella Violet print that I won a few months ago.
