I have been wrestling with 'the beast'! And I won!
Actually, that's a bit unfair since it was not too difficult to get 'the beast' to submit. The instructions were crystal clear and the photos helped a lot. The screws fitted into their allotted holes easily and were very easy to tighten up with the allen key supplied.
Much more hard work was tidying the studio to make way for it (the studio just tends to be used as a dumping area, partly because the radiator did not work so the room was too cold to actually do any art in and partly because the light in there was so awful. Both problems are now fixed thanks to a plumber and an IKEA lamp.)
So here is The Beast set up and ready for quilting - that is for tomorrow!
From these pics the studio looks a bit bleak. I think I need to create a design wall on that left hand wall on the top picture.
And it doesn't help that we don't have a garden shed here so the room also has to accommodate all the gardening tools! That is the handles of the lawn mower you may be able to make out in the left hand side of the top photo and the strimmer is kept behind the door!
