Hey, that's a great idea.

Mind if I throw in some "buts"?
I sew a lot, and I found you don't need a lot of space in front of your machine, rather in the back and to the left; when you sew a lot of fabric you can hold it in your lap, but after passing under the needle it has to pile up somewhere. Judging by your fabrics I'd say you're more into patchwork and small things, but even so I fear your makeshift-slideout won't hold to well the weight of your machine, even more so when going full speed. So I'd invest in a larger shelf, even coming out a bit, but properly installed and secured.

If you like you could also add a threadholder in the back, over your machine - just a lot of pegs on a board, to slide on the spools. Makes an interesting, colorful addition too. Smiley

The same as snake eyes.

Looks frightening good.

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: This year's christmas present! on: January 13, 2014 12:54:40 AM
Totally loving this, not in the least because I recognise some of that paper. I remember buying some craft paper in Aldi Sud, and it looks a lot like yours Wink.
...
You're totally right! It's from Aldi. I've cut it into A6 Cards. But next year, I'll first print the text directly to the paper, then cutting it. I've lost waaay too much of that lovely print while glueing the text paper onto.

Every year you buy lots of presents, and every year comes the point when the kids are complaining it's "boooring, mum...".
I wanted to change that. So this year I gave our kids:

It's bed and breakfast. You stay in bed and get a breakfast just as you like to. Ended with pizza, fried potatoes, little hotdogs and the like. Well, I did say "eat-what-you-want"...

Minecraft-Day! We'll play it anyway, why not make it official? It includes a castle building and monster killing contest.
And the best: you can fold down that hill!
[
A visit with accompanying menu at the movies. Playing "Frozen". Whoaaa! Since then, the kids are singing the songs top-of-their-voices!

Going for a swim in a special bath, they have a wave-pool and slides and so on. Took some friend of the girls with us.

Going to skate and having a snack besides. Met there with friends and had tons of fun!

Table top game day. We did that, it's just the kids did not want to participate. Not my fault, is it? Well, maybe we'll repeat it.

Pyjama Party! Each girl was entitled to invite a best friend. We had a Just-Dance-Contest and would have had a Karaoke Contest, but the computer insisted in singing itself... Sad but after all, there was a great movie evening laying in wait and everyone was quite happy.

This promises a visit to a very special friend of the family.

And since we were looking for a dog (we've been talking about that since November), we promised a visit to an animal shelter. Just for looking! We did not take a dog with us - at least not that day. Hey, it's not my fault things moved faster than planned...

His name is Toby...

Happy crafting!

Hi, have a hug from me, too. Been down there too.

For the buttons: make them period. Cut a small circle out of your fabric, stuff it with something (may even be an old acorn), stitch a thread about 1 cm away from the edge all around, pull thread tight - have an original button.

I like the idea, but did you take into account the ceiling lamp shade may get hot? Dripping Crayolas then?

@Stillatthetop: I didn't say he NEEDED a change. I just explained why people may see him as sad and how to alter that. I did not want anybody to see that a a command.
