Atlanta Thread had a sale last month and I took advantage. I bought the prosaic, some thread and shoulder pads. Kenneth King likes their needle punch pads. Then came the biggie, well moderately big, I bought a new cutting mat. A very large cutting mat, 4'x8', that then needed a new table top to support it. I had a 2'x 8' hollow core door from my previous sewing room. Fortunately we hadn't thrown it out. My dh bought me another door, 3x 8' so that I now have a 5' wide table. Of course the doors are a nominal 8' so he's going to add a piece of wood at one end so that my lovely new mat won't hang over the edge. This means I can cut out a 60" wide piece of fabric in a single lay without it falling off the side of my table. Of course I had to rearrange the room, get rid of my lounge chair, which was only a repository for fabric anyway, and I turned the table 90 degrees. We set the top with an overhang on one side deep enough to comfortably in a chair. I can easily work on either side of the table, which is particularly useful for tracing patterns. I love it!
The pants part of this outfit are coming along nicely with the pants shell finished and the lining is cut out ready to sew. I was hoping to get it done by yesterday, but work intervened.
This is what I was working on
