Back to Work (new workbench part 2)

by laurie jane kern on January 31, 2010

It took a week but I am back up and running.

During the week I broke down the sewing table and just piled everything on the floor. I was able to then fold up the sewing table and roll it over to another wall. I then had to clean the floor as it had not been done in a while.

Here is a picture before… and yes I made all those mini-quilts hanging on the walls (there is a page of some of my quilts over on Kernology – I have made lots more but have not posted those pictures yet)


oh and I thought you would like to see how I am using a canvas shoe hanger for storing my hammers.

Hanging Hammers

And while this what going on, my sweetie was assembling the workbench ….

Then we took it upstairs in sections and did the final assembly.  We had some issues with the drawers when we first put them in but now they glide very smoothly.

Here is the final set up. Notice the folded up sewing table on the right.

My Mom has made many of these types of small quilts. Some were put into a museum at the University of Nebr. She is 92 and is still busy when she feels like it. I am not sure of what we will do with all the material she has that she will not get to finish using.

Thanks to you both

Beth – I also knit AND weave and sew clothing in addition to the quilts as well as crewel/embroidery, some painting and Japanese Temari and Sashinko.

Hans – I just finished another repousse piece yesterday, so the good project are starting to flow! Pictures to be posted soon.

Very nice. Some good work is going to come out of there, of that I am quite certain!

Love the shoe hanger idea… very neat. Interesting how many metal artists also were/are into fiber arts…. I also quilt! I know lots of folks who were/are knitters, or weavers, or sewers. Wonder if it is all about the textures and patterns? Love your little quilts too!
