1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / worktable or alternatives? on: October 22, 2008 05:14:24 PM
In my new apartment, I have half a room for my craft space.  I got an awesome 80+ year old trunk to store yarn and fabric, now I need a worktable.  I knit and sew and I'm hoping I'll do a lot more if I have the perfect space. 

What do people use as a worktable?  The stuff sold online as a worktable is usually MDF and I'm hoping for something more substantial, since it'll be in a room other people use too. 

Also, would it be better in the middle of the room or against a wall?  My part of the room is about 11x11.

ETA: I'm also teaching myself to quilt, so I need a fairly big workspace.

I'm glad you like the Nautie - I was surprised how big he came out!

Kitschkween, let me know if you need swapangel help.

When does Ptarmic Wumpus sleep!?!?

I got so much stuff from Ptarmic Wumpus! First, the wrapped shot:



I was good and didn't open until Dec. 23, when I was headed out of town and couldn't wait anymore. I had asked for hand-dyed yarn, and my favorite colors are blues and greens.  Ptarmic Wumpus made sure I don't have an excuse to buy yarn for ages, with green cotton yarn (worsted weight, and has a little blue mixed in):



Also blue and green wool yarn, possibly sport weight:



And finally, blue and green rayon boucle:



It's hard to photograph because it's so shiny, but the color is much more vibrant in person.

And everything was packed in a project bag/basket made of a felted sweater! You can see the lovely card of a snowy scene in Paris, which reminds me of Central Park.   



It's so clever and the deep red is a great contrast with all the blues and greens. I'm going to have to watch out so the cat doesn't steal it and make it her bed. Here you can see some of the texture of the sweater:



Thank you so much Ptarmic Wumpus, and I can't wait to wind all of this up and see all the colors in detail.

Calluna, I feel the same. I only made the thing I claimed for because it ended up being a lot more work than I expected and I had no time to do more (not to mention the mad house my life has been for the past month, like getting evacuated from my apartment for over a week). Hope the recipient likes it anyway....

I received today from riario, this gorgeous little pincushion:



I don't know how I'm going to be able to stick pins into this adorable little bird!

I'm glad you like him - my boyfriend loved him (and I think wanted to keep him).

I had a lull waiting for supplies for one of my claims, and now I have a baby sweater to finish before my coworker comes back from paternity leave on Monday (also got addicted to a lace stole mystery KAL). Has anyone received already?

Riario, yours is going out today, priority mail, so you should have your OTT by Monday. Hope you like it!
