On Friday we went to IKEA and I finally got my long awaited cutting table!
Yesterday Michael assembled it and we placed it in my studio. Look!
See that brown dining table on the right? That was my old cutting table. I love it because it´s the more than 40 years old first dining table my parents bought when they were just married, but it always made my back hurt when cutting more than a few pieces.
Look, the new table is 7 1/2" higher! That is such a difference! I am not very small at 175 cm / 5´9" so I am SO VERY happy to have this new higher table now! And the price was okay, too.
(see that stack of fabrics? my cyber monday sales purchases) ;-)
Here are a few pictures from Christmas:
Mom and Dad with their blue star pillows,
and MIL with the cream and brown pillows. She kept one of them on her lap for the rest of the evening, so I think she really likes it. (please excuse the bottles in the foreground)
I have no pictures of the other recipients, but I think they also liked their gifts. :-)
And finally, the tree skirt in action.
I wish you all a happy, wonderful, healthy, successful and quilty New Year 2013!!!
