I've just finished my two days of class (and had a great time) on this and this is what I have to show for it:
Now for some photos of my new stitching station - Mum, this is why I wanted the chair with the centre console.
See how nicely my current canvas fits between the seats, and behind it is the project bag with the supplies. Then the drink holders make a nice place to put a pin cushion and an ort pot (as well as providing somewhere safe for a drink). Just to the right you can see a bit of the upright to my light.
Then you lift up the cushion and find all my stitching supplies - they're all nicely tucked away in their bag at the moment as I haven't used them since getting home from the class, but normally the scissors and needles and things would be on top of their bag for easy access. Under the bag I've got the thread for the bookmarks and the round roll of banding is there at the front so I can just do one whenever that's all I can handle. Then hopefully they'll be ready when I need them. DD has also decided she needs some stitching tools like Mummy so that's her pink bag in there too.
Then across the other side of the lounge is the coffee table with all my current(ish) project bags and other supplies, mounted canvases down one side, a stand at the other end, and underneath are stretcher bars and another stand. It's all working rather well so far. Oh and the puzzle is supposed to be the next one we are working on, as at one point we decided that table would be a good puzzle table where we could just leave one out to be worked on. It did work for one puzzle, then it kind of fizzled out.
