I anxiously awaited my Sew Ezi portable sewing table that I ordered at last Saturday's quilt show. I was expecting it to arrive Tuesday so was disappointed that it didn't, but I was tracking it so I knew for sure it would be here on Wednesday.
Sure enough, about 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, this arrived:

It will be perfect for my itty bitty craft room, as well as for folding up and taking along to quilt camp in July and to any other quilt class or retreat I may enjoy in the future.
I've folded it up and put it back in its zippered cover and it awaits me in the hallway. I need to make space in this itty bitty room, but that's part of a much bigger project, that ongoing, years long project, so it may stay where it is until August, except for traveling with me in July.

This one is at least 15 years old and was only a basic set. It's not comfortable.
Nick graduates from 8th grade this Thursday night, and he has finals on Tues through Thurs. Tuesday's finals are for two classes, and each of the other days are only a single class each day so I'll probably end up spending my time somewhere, somehow on the other side of town where his school is rather than drive home only to spend a half hour before having to go right back to pick him up, unless Jay's mom plans to bring him home. I usually take the boys, and she brings them home. He's been asking if he can go to the public high school rather than his private school. It would certainly save a big chunk of
