The three segments this week feature things you can make or buy for someone on your list or for yourself!
On today's show:
First up, a Beyond the Workshop segment featuring the Husky 52 in. Adjustable Height Work Table with 2-Drawers in White! This was supposed to live in my garage, but after we put it together, we both were like, "that needs to go in the office! It's too pretty for a garage!" So, off it went to replace the current Husky table in Steph's office.
The adjustable height means we can use this table as a standing desk as well as lowering it to be seated. The drawers hide away a lot of unsightly office stuff. If you happen to find one already assembled at the Home Depot, buy it! The assembly is not difficult though. FYI: The assembled table easily fit into my Honda CR-V once the seats were lowered.
Fast DIY: Dog Bandana
Before turning, clip the corners to remove some of the seam allowance. Turn the piece to the right side. Use a wood chopstick to gently push out the corners. You'll notice the seam allowance for the opening will automatically now be neatly tucked into the side. (That's why you press this seam allowance into place before sewing.) Press with right side up. Topstitch all-around the piece using about a 1/4" seam allowance. (I used the edge of the pressure foot as my guide.)
Hoover Cordless Vacuum
I was introduced to this cordless vac this summer at a conference. Since then, my heavy, corded upright vacuum died. I thought this would be a good alternative so I bought it Black Friday weekend from the Hoover website. At the time, I got a code for 10% for signing up for their newsletter. I now get notification of upcoming offers.
I am amazed at how well this picks up dirt! I think what really surprised me is all the really fine dirt it picks up. It has a carpet setting which works well on a rug in my house that has been particularly difficult to clean as it has high and low areas in the design. This is designed to hang from its included rack, but I just hang it from my Wall Control panel. I am enjoying the convenience of just being able to grab this from the wall to be able to clean up messy areas quickly. I'm not going back to corded vacuum cleaners!
This was such a fun show to film as all the segments related to each other! You'd think that was planned but NOT! Actually, the day we filmed the weather was so bad. We had not even intended to film at Steph's house. But it all worked out. There's also a bonus segment in the video featuring Mac!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year--wow, I remember when 2020 seemed so far away!
