Galaxy-Gram! While Daddy Naps

I know I said I would only be doing hand work this week but while Das took a nap I moved some furniture around in the sewing nook area at the cabin.

The machine had previously faced a wall and that can get rather boring.
There is a nice big TV in the family room side of the basement and I realized that if I turned this around I could entertain myself visually while sewing.

I gave it a test run for just a bit, sewing on some string spider web units while I could get away with it!  Ha!

We've had a great day just relaxing and catching up--

And in the process, Grand Illusion is now bound and I am now stitching down the hanging sleeve. 

Hooray!

One quilt binding done--three more to go.

I am a binding fool!

Just a quick check in from the comfort of my sewing chair with feet up--

Terri in BC, could it be a jacket?

Bonnie, I see you share the TV with your husband (and the top of his head!)

The lovely IKEA table looks great in that area. I'm still working out where/how it would fit in my small room. I have the width and need to measure depth so the closet door will open (where all the UFO and swapped blocks are residing).

Bonnie, how do you use the phone book pages without getting black fingers and smudges all over the fabric?
