Remember when I mentioned that I was trying to figure out how to put a pull out cutting table in My Room? I wanted to free up the dining room table so we could actually sit at it. Heck, when I met with my health insurance salesman we arranged to meet at a local cafe because I didn't want to clear my dining room table!!
I asked Terry to make a table that could pull out from under a counter that my Singer Presser sits on. No matter what I ask Terry to make for me...he does. So off we went to Menards to buy a piece of sanded 1/2" plywood, 3/4" x 2" strips of birch to frame it, and drawer slide outs. The slides pull out 100%.
Here is a side view of the table with my 18 x 24 mat placed on it.(That's Bosco laying under it. This is both dogs favorite spot when they are in my room. Usually there is a doggy bed there. Tyson cried until I put it back.)
I guess I'll have to move the bed when I am actually using the table, but anything to keep my puppies happy.
Here is a front view. The table must stick out a little bit from under the counter, but that's OK.
Having the table located in this spot My Room caused me to rething about what is on my counter above it. The drawers above it contain some of my bead items so I moved them and actually made it more of a sewing center. I like to use 12 x 12 scrapbook containers as project boxes so they are what I switched into that spot.
There are two of my mouse witches I made last year and some doll gifts from a couple of my blog friends.
I think of you guys every time I look at them.
So, I have put the temp afghan aside for now due to the 90 degree weather. I am keeping track of the temperatures but really don't think I catch up until the weather cools off.
I need to start the next block in Kathy's class. Of course I am still putzing around the pond. We spend time with Terry's dad every day, stay close with his sis who is having an awful time with side effects of Chemo treatment.
To my friend Jenclair...thank you for inspiring me to actually pick up a book I can get interested in. You made me realize how much I love to get lost in a book. I am now reading Every Breath You Take by Ann Rule.
What is filling YOUR days? Are you like me and feel guilty that you don't get done all that you want to?
