Then, I went to a cleaning binge. I took a total of six large boxes to Goodwill, from our various closets, a box of books to Friends of the library, and filled our trash can with things no one could possibly want. Why, you ask? I was preparing for two things. The first was a visit from Carrie and Erin, from South Carolina. I really wanted everything to be as nice a possible for them. The visit coincided with Bob's 70th birthday party, and my Aunt Vicky's annual 4th of July bash.
The other reason is I was tired of sewing in the dining room. We have a small house and the logical thing to go would be to take over the guest room and make it a sewing room. Although, I'm very logical, my heart just wouldn't let me. I love having family and friends be able to stay for a visit. So, I created this small space in my office; my very crowded office. I found the table at Ikea, and screwed the legs on myself. It's a very workable solution.
