Tale of Two Cutting Tables

There is nothing better then be holed up in a cabin in the woods with a quilting friend, fabric, sewing machine, munchies and electricity.

So much fun was had during the 4 days Bonnie Hunter and I spent sewing.  

But around day 3 we realized we were bumping elbows at the shared cutting table and action was needed.

Bonnie whipped out another table from storage.  (truly it was like something out of James Bond with how this table materialized from the storage area with it’s own mat, rotary cutter, extra light, etc.)   That girl is good.

As soon as she got it all set up and was cutting away in BonnieLand….well I couldn’t help myself.

I needed to “reclaim” the space I had.

And in MickeyLand that means there is some …ummm….straightening up to do. 

I did this quietly.  Hoping Bonnie wouldn’t notice.

But she did.  And cracked up.

So while we are the best of friends, finishing each other sentences, laughing and crying together….well we are two different quilters when it comes to our cutting tables.

I bet that extra table comes out on day one of our next “quiltfest at QuiltVilla”. 


Wait to you see what I have to share tomorrow.

Love your space. When I told my son about the award I got for the neatest work area at the Collaboration Celebration, he said... "I didn't know they gave awards for OCD." Guilty as charged!

Bonnie's space looks like mine! My whole sewing room looks like it had a bomb blow up in it....and I haven't even been in it for a week!
