Oh yes, it is here at long last......
It does take up more room than I anticipated so I have positioned it at the side and the machine is under an LED ceiling light which is out of shot. It has locking castors so I can pull it out easily if I want to walk around it. See the black handle at the side? If I turn it the table goes up or down so it will always be at the right hight for me wether I am sitting or standing. Yes, the books are still in the corner with the (not to be used as) cake tins which contain my quilting pins and scraps as well as various bits and bobs just now.
See how my machine sits in the cradle with the perspex template giving a flat surface, much better than an extension table. If remove the machine the base comes up giving me a large table for cutting or layering too.
And look at all the space, plenty of room to trim white cutting and so much space when machine quilting.
What do you think of the chair? It adjusts so many ways, it swivels, goes up and down, the seat tips up and down and the back tilts too, talk about ergonomics.
Now the table has come I can start to get the rest of the room sorted with shelving and drawers for fabrics and books and all those other essential items.
Want to know about my heating? Well it's been rather cold recently so I turned on the central heating and left it on the timer so it comes on and goes off twice a day. My son and his girlfriend came up for a few days and on Tuesday we went to a restaurant for dinner, on our return the house was boiling hot, the heating, which should have been off on the timer, was going full blast, and the temperature far exceeded the 19 degrees it was set at. We had to turn the boiler off at the electrics, you see I had this happen in the early spring and called the gas company, apparently my boiler was in danger of exploding YIKES!!! Yes, it is rare but it has happened. These intermittent faults can be awful to diagnose, I had a new diverter valve fitted last time, but apparently this engineer thinks it is some sort of feedback so he is coming back today to fit a suppressor. Wish me luck.
The only sewing related pic I can show you today is fabric.
I'm not going to tell you what I am going to do with it today, I've started it but it's not finished yet. As you can see it's Christmas fabric so you would guess right that it's a Christmas project. No I'm not saying anything else, ask me no questions I'll tell you no lies.
That's all my news this week, except to say I am going away to Higham Hall again on Sunday for four nights on an embroidery course, I can choose what to do and I think I will do stump work this time, but I'll show you when I get back.
