Why, oh why?

When we moved into our home in October 2015 I got this 8 seat outdoor table out of storage and started basting quilts on it outside on the deck. I love it, the fresh air, the sunshine, no messy gluey overspray indoors.

But it took me until recently to get around to spending $4.99 at Walmart on some risers so it was a better height for me!!!!

Why, oh why does it take so long to do the simple things that make our life easier sometimes!!!  I basted 12 quilts yesterday and no backache today. Previously I could only do 2 or 3 and ended up with a backache!
