The quilt in need of mending was on the studio floor yesterday. I wanted to spread it out, sit with it.
But it's December and time to save wood for colder days. And today is a colder day.
The studio is only opened on warm sunny afternoons when a fire is not necessary.
So I have set up mending camp in the small room below the sleeping loft.
Really it just has a table, a few chairs, plants and cloth on walls. We use this as a dining table when we have company which is almost never these days. So now. This morning. It has become the permanent mending table. A table is a great tool.
The room seems bigger because the outside seems part of it. Sun Moon and Stars built right in. The man cut 6" from the legs of both the table and the chairs a while back. Because I like low stuff. It's a bit confusing when folks come over and cannot quite figure out what is different. '
I am really loving quilts as table coverings lately. Table blankets. I like this place to begin this mending ceremony. Reminds me of a Quilting Bee*. I feel like we are all about to sit down together and fix stuff. Ready? A Mending Bee then.
