The construction crew left this morning for the last time. I baked cookies while they were here and gave them to them as a thank you when they were leaving. I have absolutely no complaints about the whole experience. They did a good job.
I washed the floor, put the small desk where I think it will live and moved the futon to a temporary spot before it is sold. Anyone want to buy a used futon with a nice, sturdy wood frame? It opens into a double bed.
Then I went to the thrift store and bought a lovely diningroom table for $50. It is a perfect size for a sewing table. After school is out in June, I'll have my husband cut a corner out for the sewing machine and build it so the machine will sit flush with the surface of the table. Here is a website that has directions on how to do it. make-sewing-machine-table and here is another one: sewing-table-tutorial. I'll let him choose which one to follow. For now, I can use the table just like I've been using our diningroom table for years with the sewing machine on top.
After I leave you, I'll move my fabric storage boxes into the studio and set up my in-process quilt and get working cutting and fusing. It is going to be so GREAT working in a large room. I leave you with a photo I took of an incense burner in front of candles. It represents me "in the zone". Ohm....stitch, stich, Ohm...
