My cutting box arrived tonight!
Designed by me and made by my wonderful Dad it is even better that I thought because entirely by co-incidence one of the 'pouches' at the side is the exact size of a Clover mini-iron cover. Plus, again entirely by co-incidence, the boxes from Ikea that didn't fit the shelves when I put the doors on, fit perfectly, two side by side inside the box. It now gives me an erogonomic cutting height.
The whole thing lifts off the table and slides underneath for when I want to use the whole table top.
Now I have so much storage I need to go and buy some more notions/fabric!. Fortunately my Friend Lesley has volunteed to give up three days to go to Festival of Quilts to assist me do just that in August. Meanwhile June Calander in NYC kindly popped an Amerian quilt catalogue in her swap package to me today -its from Keepsake Quilting and has some very pretty things in it.....!!
