Magazine Rack

News on the whales is not good, a further whale was found dead beached at Wainfleet , a little further up the coast.  Such a shame, scientists are now working to find out what has caused this catastrophe.  There has been sightings of more whales in the North sea, lets hope they don't come into shallow waters.

I was a woman on a mission with the quilt but got sidetracked today by my husband.  He is having a flare up and is in a lot of pain so needed some help with a project that he had started.  We have had a magazine table which was in very poor condition in the shed for quite a  long time.  My husband had lovingly repaired the damaged table and stripped the veneer ready for painting.



 
Several hours later, two coats of paint and a waxing sees a table that would have gone to landfill restored to its former glory and now taking pride of place in the craft room.
 



 
I do wonder how long it will take me to fill this work space to the same capacity as the rest of the room?  My dear husband thinks minutes rather than days...I think he is cheeky!  What do you think?
 
Back to reality and sore fingers I have a quilt to finish.
 
See you soon.

  1. I think you better fill it with a topic like books or boxes of materials quickly. If you are like me spare space gets filled with clutter. Don't let the clutter get there first.

  5. I am sorry to hear about the whales. They are sometimes found on our beaches and the marine biologists try to understand what is going on, tissue samples are taken. I never have heard any conclusions.

    Yes, your husband is being cheeky. Ha! Flares = no fun. Hope that he is feeling better soon.

    That table is great! You folks did a wonderful job.

  6. They think that submarine sounds throw the whales off their path. So sad that they are killing themselves. Good job on the table.. very clever! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  24. I will be interested to know if the scientists can figure out why the whales are in trouble. I am sorry your husband has been unwell, and I hope he feels better soon. I am so impressed with how your project turned out! You may be able to exercise organizational restraint, but I would probably take minutes to fill it up :) xx

  25. What a beautiful job!! Use it in good health!! I'm so sorry your husband is under the weather. I'm sending him positive thoughts.

    We've had problems with whales beaching themselves here in the U.S. It's just so terrible. I believe the military does a lot more training exercises in the ocean then they let us know about and it's horrible for the marine life. Have a good weekend!! xo
