It arrived ....

I went out on Tuesday and purchased a table tennis table .. with the idea it would be perfect for pinning my quilts layers together ... perfect for single size quilt tops ... which is what I am making for the grandchildren ...

The table arrived yesterday afternoon .. in a box ... and it took us both ages to put it together .. and when I say both of us I really mean my darling husband Marcos ... He worked on it for around 3 hours and finally it was done ... in all its magical glory there it stood .. and where was my man ... out side stretching ... he had hurt himself climbing under it to do nuts and bolts up ... opps .. sorry hun ...

I do love this man ... after 3 hours of fitting this wonderful table together for me .. I wheeled it up the passage way to my sewing room to put it away ... tra-la-la ... lala-la-la-laaaaa ........

oh my ... oooohhhh my ..... oh noooo .....  it won't fit through the door ... it goes up the passage way not problem at all ... and goes through the doorway .... about 2 feet ... but ... can't turn far enough in the passage way space to actually go all the way into the room .... ohhhhhhh mmmyyyy .... there is 4 foot of this thing that just don't fit .... no matter how much we giggled and pushed ... and wiggled and rocked .... and nugded and coerced  ..... and threatened and yelled .... and ....

well ... after a wee bit of a dummy spit from this here dummy .. and a couple of major tanties ... (again from me ) ... my darling man suggest we do a little rearranging ... the table would just go straight through the doorway into our bedroom because our room was at the end of the passage way .... so why not ... move the sewing room to the bedroom and the bedroom to the sewing room .... I will lose a bit of space because the bedroom is a smaller room but it has better light from more windows .. and he wins too because the sewing room new bedroom is darker and this means .. longer sleep ins ... not that he really needs much help in that department ... yesterday ... he didn't rise until 10:30 and this morning it was a little after 10 ...

My dear friend Fiona told me this morning that I will laugh about this soon .. and I am off to a good start .... because I am already laughing ... at myself ...

oh well ... I am going to sign off now ... and get back into making this quilt for the lad ... the top is all but finished ... and I now have a wonderful big table surface on which to pin it ...

have a lovely day out there ... be safe and stay warm ...
