I just got back from stitch and bitch and want to share a very clever lap tabletop that my friend Karen brought to do hand appliqué on.
It sets right on your legs and has two different heights that it can change to.
It has spool holders for the colors of thread you are using on your project so they won't roll
in between the cushions of your couch.
You can see the mechanics of how it is made so that you can have your husband make you one.
You can made a padded cover for it. Pretty cool, huh?
