The Nelly Table
My friends, Sally and Jace, surprised me with a Nelly Table last year. I love this table. It's always on the arm of my sofa, and keeps my applique stuff handy for night stitching.
The original table was made for Sally when she needed a place to put her mouse for her laptop. Jace is amazing. Give him an idea and he's off and running. His work is absolutely beautiful! Here's a link to his site. http://www.webersfurniture.com Some of the most dilapidated and abused pieces that have been stored in barns and attics for decades have been restored to their original beauty by him. He's a true artist!
The Nelly was named for their late cat, Nelly. She used to sleep straddling the arm of their sofa just like this table. The picture they sent me was hilarious! Anyway, it was fitting to name this piece for her.
I was constantly losing my needle threader, etc., but now everything is handy and nothing falls between the cushions of the sofa anymore. The Nelly is my all-time favorite quilty gadget!!
