Making Like the Birds…

The Canada Geese aren’t the only ones preparing for their journey down South…Hubby has been busy getting the 5th Wheel and Truck all lubed and oiled…and what ever else needs doing.  And I of course have been thinking about what sewing projects to take!

We are ‘a little’ early with our preparation as we aren’t leaving until after Christmas BUT it’s always good to think ahead, as Christmas will be here before we know it!  Look at how September whizzed by…heck, for that matter…look at how our whole Summer whizzed by!!

We made a major change in the RV for this coming year…there use to be TWO lazy boy chairs…(I forgot to take a BEFORE picture)…but you can sort of see them in the right of this picture….  Anyway, the chair closest to the table is now GONE…

And in it’s place is this Sew EZI Table~

Yes, I finally have a ‘sewing room’!! :o)  This table folds right down, is only 23 lbs., and the clear Plexiglas plate is specially cut for my Janome.  It is really sturdy and there is NO vibration when your machine is running at race car speeds! 

AND the good part…this table will stay up permanently!!  No putting up and taking down in the same day! 

Several of the Club House Quilters bought one at the Road to California last year for their RVs and loved them!  The only thing was they are expensive (over $300) so that took a HUGE bite out of the $750 that Canadians are allowed to bring home duty free. 

Well, Hubby found an online Canadian Dealer so that eliminated that problem! 

Now I have to start working on getting the Mid-Arm Quilting Machine and Frame set up in the Living Room/Kitchen!!  :o)  Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day!

Have a Wicked Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P

  4. I was wondering when you were coming back down our way. We have been seeing geese down here, but I have a feeling they might be residents. But I always know autumn is coming when one of the dairies by my house mows down the cow corn field and the geese show up the next day to pig out. Sadly the Coop will probably be closed by the time you guys get here.

  5. Terrific post! My husband & I are planning to purchase some sort of RV in the spring. Yours looks very much like the floorplan of one we really liked at an RV show recently. What make is yours? Of course, I'm also looking for space to take along my quilting!

  6. I have wanted one of those machine tables and I can't tell you why. I really have no need of it but that doesn't stop the wants. They aren't inexpensive so I just ignore the wants.

  8. I love my Sewezi and a round magnetic pin holders fits in the round depression just right. I also like that the table is slick and the fabric moves across it so easily. A perfect investment.

  9. I saw those Sew Ezi tables at the Chicago Quilt Show 6 years ago and thought it would be wonderful to own one. I certainly don't need it. LOL The sewing room addition to your mini mansion is fabulous.

    But, but, but where will you sit to watch TV? Had to ask! LOL

  19. Does this mean you will now have all the quilters down at your place, instead of up in the clubhouse at the Sands?
