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!
