Rolling in the deep...

Messy and  productive!!

I am seriously rolling in the deep, in the weeds, shattered, and slammed!!  We've never been busier in the shops, is in development and I am 8 days away from my a massive deadline. So this is just a quick note to share some of my new found wisdom!
  • Delegating is awesome. 
  • I don't have to touch everything that we send out.
  • I have a dreamy set of Junies. (I've known this all along!)
  • Sleep really helps when caffeine and double stuffed cookies fail you.
I am off to write, pattern and sew!! Not to mention, ignore my hubby and neglect my kids for just a little while longer.

Is laminated cotton fabric strong and sturdy?

The answer is YES!!

A few years ago my son had a math homework melt down and as a result he took his pencil and rammed -- it lead first -- into one of my favorite laminated cotton tablecloths and pierced it. Needless to say I was NOT happy.

Amazingly enough, the hole never grew larger. I used that tablecloth for another 6 months straight till a new laminated cotton fabric caught my fancy and I still circulate that tablecloth in every now and then. I'm still amazed that the hole have never ripped or tore though so many wipe downs and heavy use.

Please note that we don't live in a big fancy house, we only have one table so that table gets a lot of use!! School, work, game nights, craft time and every meal happen at the table. We live at that table!

I've used oilcloth and laminated cotton on my tables for almost 7 years now I can honestly say that laminated cotton is just as strong and hard wearing as the oilcloth.
