I think some sanding/plane-ing will take care of that today. Pardon the blurriness of the foreground – I don’t think the camera knew what I wanted and focused on the tea pot at the other side of the room on top of the cabinet by the sink!
Baseboards will also go back up today and then the kitchen will be all back together--
Today is going to be a fun day here ---son Jason will arrive for Christmas at some point! I’ve got a few things I have to run out for for Christmas dinner --- I know, I know, last minute – hey. I’ll brave the crowds and pay for it!
And of course, Quilt-Cam and the announcing of our winner from our Give-Away for the Quiltmaker Magazine Jan/Feb 2013 issue, Moda Charm Pack and Quiltville seam guide will be at 2pm this afternoon!

Hurry, Hurry, Hurry – no time to drag my butt today!
I wanted to share with you a couple cool sewing items I saw on my outing yesterday:
How many of you remember THESE?!
Cool Avocado Green Sewing Box!
Inside the box!
My very first sewing box was cheap plastic on the outside…this one is quite heavy, I think it has a wood frame under that gaudy green and metallic gold thread quilted cover! My step-grandma bought me one when I was about 14 to hold all my embroidery supplies – floss, needles, thread, scissors --- and it went off to college with me and then came with me when I got married. I don’t know when it ever got pitched ---
I also loved this cabinet ----
First Glance ---two drawer end table, right?
Top drawer has a little carved cup for pins or thimble…
But look at the bottom drawer:
It isn’t a drawer! It pivots!
I can imagine little spools of thread in all different colors perched on those pegs –what would go on the round spots underneath? Balls of crochet cotton?
It’s a beautiful antique piece, and I wish I had a place to put it – but alas, I’m out of room for furniture in this house.
It was a “Catch & Release” day for me --- not a thing came home. But I still love to look ---Don’t you?
Time for breakfast, a shower and to get this day going --- I’ll see you at 2pm Eastern for Quilt-Cam!
