I'm so excited that the wall above my sewing table has finally been decorated!
The gorgeous cabinet was made by Jace Weber. Judy has mentioned Jace and his fabulous workworking, and I've also talked about his work in a prior post on the Nelly table. (Scroll down for the Nelly story.) Jace and Sally's church holds an annual Lord's Acre Sale and auction. Jace donated this cabinet to that auction. Although we're half a country apart, I was the lucky winner of the auction! I asked Jace if I could order a quilt hanger to match the cabinet. Imagine my surprise when the quilt hanger arrived -- with a beautiful wallhanging by Sally! I'm just the luckiest gal alive!
Last night my friend, Jane, and her sweet husband, Jim, came over to hang these for me. Bless his heart, he pulled out the sewing cabinet and crammed himself between the table and the wall to get these hung! I'm thrilled that they are hanging just as I envisioned them. I had been saving that wall for something special! And they also helped me turn that thick mattress on my bed.
We had a great dinner. Grilled steaks, baked beans, potatoes, salad, bread, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Also andouille sausage and apple/chicken sausage. I was stuffed! What a fun day!
I've been so blessed with having these special people in my life. Sally and Jace , Jane and Jim - I love you!
Tomorrow I clean off the sewing table, arrange the cabinet and shelf, and I sew!!
I'm so happy!
