After 28 hours of non-stop ironing and sewing I would like to present 80 brand spankin' new Aloha table cloths. These cloths are currently winging their way to Verbier, Switzerland to grace the table tops of my Nephew's brand new cafe bar - The Offshore Cafe. The Offshore Cafe's grand opening is scheduled for December 1st, how I wish I could be there to celebrate.
As you probably can tell, I am one tired Auntie M in this picture. Had to take a picture for posterity - right after this shot was taken I spent a frustrating hour packing everything for mailing.
Meanwhile, back to reality.... Isn't this oak weaving bench just the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? My dear husband has been working on this project for the last few weeks. He custom built this bench for me when I told him my Glimakra bench was causing me to get cramps in my legs when I sat on it for any length of time. After noticing a bench with a tilted seat on a weaving website I asked the hubby to build one for me. Here is his lovely creation - I just love it! All I have left to do is throw my sheepskin on it and I am ready to weave for hours in comfort. Thanks Honey.
The bench above was also made by my husband several years ago. It is the perfect height to use with my Gilmore loom. I throw a cushion topped with a sheepskin on it and weave in comfort. It is wonderful to have a resident woodworker in the house, especially when I need something made for my studio.
Need to get busy, Santa's elf should be working on presents...
