You thought this was going to be about a quilty WIP?  This is the beginning of my new sewing cabinet.  My most talented husband is making this cabinet just for my machine.

About a year ago I somehow got roped, forced, dragged, talked, cajoled into buying a new sewing machine.  Oh yes it is the most fabulous thing but really I didn't want need a new machine! I had dropped my machine off at Bernina to get her cleaned and oiled.  When I went to bring her home I was given a demo of this new, fabulous, does everything but cook dinner machine and....I fell in love all over again!  I was indecisive for 15 minutes or so but I knew I was weak and was going to breakdown and take my new girl home!

Of course my new girl did not near fit into my current sewing cabinet my sister bought for me thirty years ago. My machine now sits on top and I sew up high!  It is going to be wonderful to be able to have my machine at table height again.

He has a ways to go but how wonderful of him to feed into my passion for sewing.  I love my cabinet but I love him for making it for me even more!!
