New Cutting Table

She's a beauty and I'll be excited to get sewing again after removing the old cutting table, washing walls and doing more purging.



 This is Karen of Coventry Wood Works who designed and built this, so happy with how it turned out.  It's constructed so that it can be put together or knocked down in sections which is important when living in a condo.

This is a mammoth or so for me, cutting top and the construction is so beautiful I almost feel bad covering it with a cutting mat but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
 This is her husband Cam who also teaches partime at Camosun College, too bad I didn't get a picture of his face right.
 Hubby giving Karen help when she screws down the top, so not a comfortable position for Karen.

 This is now my pressing station above these two plastic bins which in the future will be replaced with shelving.  Time to refill those bins, so looking forward to this.

By the way if anyone in the Victoria, BC area would like my old cutting table which I purchased from Sawyers's Sewing Centre several years ago it's for sale dirt cheap but you have to pick it up.

Pain In The Neck

That's exactly what's been happening in my world this past 5 weeks, headache with neck and shoulder pain.  No sewing here, no anything really lately as it is painful to bend my neck so I'll just follow along with everyone else's quilting and crafting fun.
When things get better I'll sew the binding down on this little Bargello runner which is actually leftovers from a larger quilt.
