I am still excited but, at least, today I am going to reveal the reason for this extended period of joy.
It is quite probable that you will be deflated when I reveal the cause, but that won’t change how I feel.
Ladies and gentlemen…
Bossymamma is proud, not to say excited, to present…

Here it is! The cause of my excitement: my new sewing table!

I have had a dilemma for some time about where to sew. In my craft room I have a glass-topped desk which is lovely to work on for general crafting and/or computing. However, I really don’t think it would be safe to use a sewing machine on it. Not only that, but it would involve carrying the sewing machine upstairs whenever I needed to use it.
Using the dining table is not an ideal solution as Peter tends to take it over at weekends for one of his pastimes so that I have to clear my sewing away on Friday evenings.
I came up with what I thought was an ideal solution: a wooden shed/garden room. Dreams of my own private space for crafting and sewing floated through my mind. Plans progressed well… in my head. However, Peter was not keen on the idea. He said it would feel as though I was always out. So, it was back to the drawing board.
A few weeks ago I went to Ikea with Elizabeth and we found the answer to my problem…
