    New Sewing Table Pics! Finally...

    I finally learned how to re-size pictures so I can share with you guys! I had to call in my IT guy into my office at work so he could show me how. Anyways, I posted a couple of weeks ago about the sewing table that I had made. These pics are in the top of my barn that we recently built. I used left over 5" boards to make this sewing table. The first pic is after I glued the 5" boards together. The 2nd pic is after the glue dried, and I sanded on it for days and days... and then polyurthaned (spelling) it. I then built the shelf for my machine to sit down in and then moved it upstairs and put my machine in it! I just finished my first quilt, I will take some pics of it tonight and post them tomorrow now that I know how. Oh and the last pic is of my dog Cooter, I get kinda scared in the barn all by myself sometimes, I'm the biggest sissy ever was, and so I bring him up there with me. He just lays on that rug the whole time like he is guarding me, he is my big baby! He's bigger than I am tho! There is also a pic of my fabric stash, I just started quilting not that long ago so it's not all that big but I am working on it like a vengeance! I am so so so addicted to fabric, so it won't be long! Thanks guys for looking I resized all these pics so hopefully they turn out now....

    Great table and fabulous sewing space! If I had a space like that, I'd never leave. Okay, I guess I'd need kitchen and bathroom breaks.

    Getting the right size for my acrylic table was easy, I just measured it and cut it out. I cut it a little shy of my measuring just to be on the safe side and then I sanded it down to where I needed it. It is just two squares cut out and connected. I did build it too low for my machine, but I just sat my machine on a 1/2" board, drew around it and then cut it out and put it underneath my machine. I then mitered around the edges so my acrylic table would sit down in perfect. Really, it was pretty easy and a heck of alot cheaper than if I wanted to buy one like that. And I already had all the wood left over from the barn so I didn't have to buy anything at all.

    I'm jealous of that sewing space and your fabulous sewing table. Looks like there's plenty of room for your growing stash.

    Tartan - the bathroom is right beside me, you can see the wall boxed in there. I might take some more pics and post them tomorrow when I post pics of my first quilt. And the kitchen is right behind me. It's not a full kitchen, I just built a horseshoe bar, put a counter top stove in the bar, and I have a little fridge under the bar counter. I say little fridge but that little sucker will hold 5 cases of beer! Lol...

    im convinced we need a picture of the barn from the outside and one of your yard too! yep, i know how you feel about sewing; the first time i put my foot to the pedal it changed my life forever and not in a hobby type way, either. it's become a passion for me and when im not sewing, im hand sewing and getting better at hand quilting, and when im not doing either i have a doodle pad and some colored pencils. ive only been sewing a little over a year now and i collect stash like a mad hatter! congrats, and may we share a lot of laughs over the years!
