It’s got nothing to do with sewing, but it’s still handmade – and it’s my most complicated, most time-consuming project and the one I’m most proud of ever: my garden mosaic table
As a stand for the table top I bought an old Singer sewing machine stand off ebay:
The table has actually been in use for two years, but I only completed it last week with the addition of the copper band. Originally I had put mosaic tiles around the perimeter of the table, but they had all fallen off in the frost (the table lives outdoors all years round) and so I was looking for a more robust finish and I think the copper band looks great.
I have to say that I really love this table, and I would happily continue making mosaic furniture – but there is only so much mosaic furniture a house can take ;-).
