Quilting, on the other hand, certainly does. I had resorted to using the dining room table which meant a quick rearrangement of everything when it came time to eat (and always being eagle-eyed looking for any sign of spillage) and then moving everything back when we had finished. The dining room always looked a mess and, as we have a large, open plan living space, this meant that the whole house always looked a mess.
|The space I have to work with|
The only other option we had was to bring in another table and set it up next to the dining room. I initially balked at this. Nowhere, in any design magazine, does it say to put 2 dining room tables together and it will look good. I was reluctant to 'spoil' the look of the living room.
However, if I wanted to quilt (which I do), I was left with very little choice so this morning, we took the beautiful old oregon table that has been sitting outside and sanded it.
|Finally - a bit of TLC|
|Extra 6ft table? No problems.|
I am very surprised at just how easily a very large table fitted into this space and whilst it won't win any design awards, I can now quilt in the knowledge that dinner time spills will not be such a disaster.
Thanks so much for visiting. We'd love to have you join us on Facebook , Pinterest, Ravelry and instagram too.
