At Long Last ~


Holy moly!  December 8th already.  I thought with Thanksgiving being so early this year and having started to decorate a few days before, my decorating would be long done.  Ha!  I should know better.  I am close, but close isn't what I want right now.  Perhaps if I would stay home, more could get done.  It seems I am always running somewhere.  Thankfully I didn't have to deal with dilation at today's ophthalmology appointment (all is well) so at least I can see.  Then I decided to make a couple dozen ornaments on the Cricut and since I hadn't made any in over 6 months, that was a re-learning experience . . . and with only one call to my son's girlfriend 😁

About two and a half years ago dear friend Dolly gifted me this wonderful old shirt cupboard from a department store in Akron, Ohio.  Isn't it just the coolest wool storage cupboard?  Now if I would just organize the wool in all the drawers!  It sat kind of forlorn in my bedroom (the only place I could find room for it) for the last couple of years.  

FINALLY . . . Ole Jack got hung over it and it is the perfect spot for him.  I am absolutely thrilled how it looks.  That is my maternal grandmother's rocker sitting in front.  Dolly, thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.  You are truly one in a million.

Some of my sewing collectibles sit atop.

Must get back to being busy.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊

Wow, what a very beautiful way to store and display your wool. You are one lucky girl to have been gifted this treasure and to have such a generous friend... Everything looks fantastic the way you set it all up.

Take care,

That's a gorgeous cabinet, and so useful to store wool. Or so many other things that are a pain to dig through deep drawers for. The display on top is very nice too.
I have a littermate to your dog pincushion. Or at least a close cousin. It's a full dog, no basket, that I made into a pincushion. The face, coloring, and lusterware(?) finish is the same.

Turning grinchy green here... GAH! That cabinet is AHHHMAZING! It is the sort of piece that hookers and stitchers dream of finding someday...and the kind of piece you just MAKE room for. What an wonderful gift from a generous friend. Love Ol' Jack up there too...absolutely perfect. But I wouldn't expect anything less from you. ~Robin~
