So… this was the before picture:
After some work it looked like this:
And this is how it looks today:
That pile of yellow is a quilt top I’m working on for my daughter. The problem is, I can’t work like this. I tried, I really did, and the issue isn’t just that I switched tables (which seemed like a good idea at the time) it’s that now I’m pressing on the left side, which also happens to be where I’m sewing and that’s just a freaking disaster.
Now I need to swap this desk out for the old table again to make the space workable. And I’m definitely not doing that before Christmas.
So that’s where I’m at. I haven’t forgotten quilting or this blog again, I’ve just hit a bit of a snag in the ‘getting back to it in a big way’ plan. I DO need to get back to it, though, because I offered coasters as prizes in a fundraiser that ended last week. Need to get them made and mailed sooner rather than later!
