Happy 420!!!

Yaaay 4/20! I don't have work today! Or tomorrow! Guess what I'm gonna do?

Yes, that's right. SEW. I was suppose to take my Sunday easy, but instead I spent the day putting together my fantastic new cutting table.

Saturday night I was setting a sale and found out that the really nice cutting table we had at work was going half off. So I came in first thing Sunday morning and bought it, along with some fabric, of course *headdesk*. And with the addition of my discount, I basically got an amazing deal on the table and felt very lucky. It's got shelving in the middle and the sides fold down, it even has castors (which doesn't work too terribly well on my carpet, but it's a good feature to have). With a few modifications, including possibly putting some canvas wrapped foam atop it so I can just stick my pins straight into the table, and maybe some sort of hooks to hang my scissors and meassuring tapes.

Now that I have this table, I won't waste most of my energy crawling around on my hands and knees on the floor to fit patterns to my fabric. Now it won't be "cut this out, sew it tomorrow" for me. And that may seriously shorten my production time. So I'm excited!

18 days and counting. I'm trying not to, but I can't help counting down.
