Is the heat on?!

Mercy!  It surely was a hot weekend in my little part of the world.  I vowed that I would not turn on the air conditioners until June 1st but I caved in last night.  There was no way I was going to sleep in my hot, sticky bedroom without some kind of relief so I turned the a/c unit in my bedroom on high and slept like a baby.  Grace has taken to sleeping sprawled on the kitchen floor.  I think the cool tile must feel good on her belly!

Early in the morning yesterday I ventured into the studio before the heat became unbearable.  I put this little number together.

I bought a piece of MDF and placed it on top of two plastic storage drawers.  I was concerned about weight but it works great.  I may end up putting legs on the back but so far, so good.  I quilted on a practice piece and nothing jiggled.  Next I will pick up the piece of rigid foam insulation to build up on the table top to machine bed height.  I have a pretty piece of laminated fabric that I will use to disguise everything and create a "slippery" surface for quilting.  I will use my folding, height adjustable table on my left to help support larger quilts as I am quilting.

Did you notice my thread racks?  I finally have a place for my large spools of thread not tucked away in a plastic bin and are now easily accessible.  I mounted them with these.

Oh my gosh!  I love these things!!  I use them to hang just about everything.  I buy them at Joann's with a discount coupon.  If you have not tried them, pick up a pack.  You will thank me and say nice things about me!


  1. Very nice. Love the Command hooks -- they even have some for high humidity situations, like bathrooms. And they realloy do come off with no damage to the wall.

  2. Great idea with the sewing table!

    And I love seeing all your threads like that. Mine are in tins and I'd love to be able to see what I have at a glance.

    I'll trade you some hot for some cold. Im all rugged up here and have my heating on!

  3. Command Strips are my friend!!! I LOVE those puppies, use them everywhere!!

    Space is lookin' good!
