Well, my life is certainly not exciting at all these days. As a matter of fact, I feels more like an anti-social bordering hermit personality type! lol It will end soon enough!
Since I don't have much to blog about that's related to my quilting adventures, I thought I would share with you the latest addition to my sewing room.
Tah dah....! Meet my new cutting table!
This is the front of the table or would that be the sides... hum?!?
As you can see, lots of drawers. However, these are special. They're called "pushmi-pullyu" drawers. I didn't know what they were until DH explained the concept to me!
Basically it's one big drawer that's accessible from either sides. The original idea come from Doctor Doolittle's antelope (a llama in the movie starring Eddie Murphy). Enough trivia! lol
The table is made out of Sugar Maple. It's sort of neat as Stephen artistically worked into the design the places where the tree had been tapped.
If you look closely, you'll see holes where they tapped the tree for maple sugar water.
The top of the table is wide enough to accommodate my 36 + inch cutting mat vertical or horizontal. That was one of my pre-requisites. It drove me nuts that my mat didn't fit vertically on my craft table. lol
I've already started to fill those drawers. I'm so glad to have a place for my Fat Quarters.
As you've all probably heard me say a thousand times, the down side to having a wood shop next to a sewing room is the dust. Yep, dust, dust and more dust. So now my FQ have a place where dust will be minimal.
So now I shall leave you to test out this new cutting table. I get to enjoy a bit of quilting before my nose is back in the books again.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
