I needed a shelf for my table when I do a craft fair. I saw one at my dad's house. He said I could have it.
I painted it (rather badly, it was a pesky thing to paint) and hung it on the wall with cup hooks. When it is not at a craft table, about 360 days of the year, it can be a sewing shelf.
The rest of the time it can be really useful.
and boy is it useful. Just reaching for the scissors to snip a thread, sliding out a piece of bias binding from the old tie back fixture I screwed to the side, easily laying my hands on the unpicker - it is all so smooth and compact. I had a really good haberdashery sort out yesterday and now I want to leave it like that for a little while, all neat and tidy.
Crochet classes, maths exam for my group of adult learners EEK, children to play after school, parents evening, knit and natter - it is that time of year!!
