Table model design wall easel


After I covered the two foam boards, cut the last in in half, covered with batting, and made pillow slip type covers.I added a flap at the top, and bottom, and at the bottom another piece each side, so they can overlap and Velcro, making a base. The top flaps, I sewed together, like a hinge. Then there is a covered board, that sits in the bottom and holds it firm.

This is small,  18” tall, 13.5” high, and the board is 8 “  deep. Next time I would make the bottom pieces that Velcro go the whole width, and maybe do the top all in one piece. However it works well.

I struggled to get good light so early in the morning, sunshine too bright outside, lounge too dark inside, maybe the table was just right, a bit like Goldilocks!!!

I am off  for another day working at the coalface, oops, I meant firewood, sunshine, a slight breeze, juice and choc bar compulsory to keep inner strength going till lunchtime.

That is all for today, see you tomorrow with hopefully a video, and a HUGE pile of wood ready for the splitter. No matter how hard this is right now, when winter comes again, we will be so thankful for the warmth of a fire every day.

Quotation of the day from J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan: Fairy Tales

So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned.

Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!”
