Near my sewing area in the basement, a swing hangs from the joists. We also have a Lego table, slide, and a tricycle near our workout zone. This means my son can play while I sew or exercise.
Since I tend to perch on the front edge of my chair, my son will often sit in the space between my back and the chair's back and read a book.
In this cozy manner, I managed to finish a few new appliques in the minutes between dinner and bedtime this week.
