Today I decided to take a little break from knitting (at least for the first half of the day) and sew a new top. Sewing has always been one of my favorite crafts and I always seem to gravitate back to it in one form or another. Here is my progress on the top before it came to a screeching halt when I realized that I did not have the required zipper.
Since I no longer have a large table in my sewing room, I purchased a full size sheet of insulation wall board that is incredibly lightweight, but rigid. I cut it to the size of the surface of the day bed and it makes a fantastic cutting surface. The bonus is that I can stick straight pins in it to hold things in place as well. It is stored against the wall covered by an antique quilt top when not in use. Cool, huh?
