When my husband was out of town at a bachelor party it's sometimes like getting bonus art-time because I try to set weekends aside to spend time with Zack.
As you may have noticed, I have more than a handful of projects going on at any one time. Sometimes I do wish I could focus on just one at a time, but my ADD doesn't stand for it. And so, I really felt I needed to get a jump on my Halloween costume. I needed a table to lay out my fabric and cut it. The dining room table is slippery and this rayon/spandex is springy.
What table is always clear in our house? The pool table of course! The fabric sticks to the felt and I can pin it into the felt top if need be. It's the perfect table for this sort of thing.
So when Zack got home, I explained to him how great it was that I could use the pool table to cutting and pinning fabric (which I had already cleared off before he had gotten home).
His reply: "No space is sacred in this house, is it?"
Welcome to living with an artist. I try to keep beads, fabric and yarn out of the man-cave side of the basement. But when the cat's away.....
I also had every intention to clean off the pool table, but it was such a great workspace that I used it to make the base of the hat for my costume too.
