Clever boy

 hubby is a genius ,I've always know he was brilliant ,but this time he surpassed himself....
For many years I have longed for a sewing table,A Horne sewing table.  Unfortunately I just don't have the space.I have "issues "with both shoulders,and sewing large items(quilts)becomes a bit of a pain.I can't get a comfortable position ,which is why I want a sewing table.....sigh.....I sew large items at the dining table rather than in my craft room,because I have more space there.Brian came up with this works like a dream woohoo.
This is my dining table,

It opens in the middle to reveal and extra section,

Hubby's idea ,open up and place the sewing machine in the well.
I was a bit sceptic about it ,but tried it anyway.

I have to tell you it works like a dream.
Sewing area is level with the table,it really is brill and much easier on the arms .It looks a bit odd,but it works,Diddnt I tell you he was brilliant.
The quilt is now finished and I will take pics in the daylight .

Thought I would share this one,our baby is now 5weeks old and doing really well.

This is not my favourite picture ,I don't look so good without my make up lol.

Hubby and my gorgeous granddaughter,I absolutely adore this kid.She has just given granddad his Father's Day Card.
All for now,got to put the wall hanging together that goes with my quilt...happy days.xx
