Here is a table I have in the studio. Since I don't use this table to sit at, (I only use it for storage and to prop up a board when I need to quilt large pieces) I store stuff underneath. It doesn't look very attractive in this photo.
I purchased that curtain rod you see at the inside top a long time ago. Yesterday was the day the curtain was finally made. I had some commercial fabric that I really liked and thought I would use, but didn't have enough.
Then I pulled out this fabric I purchased from a quilt store going out of business (although it still wasn't inexpensive).
This is a linen fabric made in Japan. I bought a couple of yards, thinking I might make a skirt or bag with it. How many skirts have I made for myself? 0.
Anyway, I decided this would be perfect because I would get to look at it all the time. Much better now.
