That is Stoney Creek's "Repair Shop" from their October 2007 magazine. The fabric is 28 count aged ecru hand-dyed fabric by Stoney Creek. I love it! Well, not the metallics. Ewwwwww! Thank goodness for Thread Heaven!
We have another new addition to my sewing/craft room. It's a Clark's spool cabinet. :) Okay, so it's not totally original but I don't care...we got a great deal! The top drawer is original and so is the cabinet shell...and I think the pulls are original, too. Regardless, I love it and think it's a great piece for my sewing/craft room. Now I just have to find two perfect chairs for either side of the cabinet:
And just for fun, here's a silly picture of Freddie checking out the drawers to my sewing machine cabinet while I had them out for cleaning:
Now for job news...I got the 911 dispatcher job! It's official -- I start Sunday at 6 AM. My schedule is 6 AM until 2 PM, Sunday through Thursday for the next 60 to 90 days while I'm in training. Our benefits will start September 1 (WOO HOO!) and the pay is higher than they advertised. (Can I get another WOO HOO?) Get this...my supervisor told me that he's been on the job 37 years and he scored my interview higher than any interview in his entire career! Yep, it's WOO HOO time again! *patting self on back*
Okay, so enough WOO HOO'ing for a moment...this will take away from my stitching time. *sniff, sniff, pout, pout* But I think it'll all be worth it. :) Also, I'm way behind on e-mails, responding to people who have been so wonderful to comment on this blog, and checking out other people's blogs. I'm sorry. Maybe I'll be in a routine soon and can catch up or at least check out what y'all have been doing on your blogs. Once I'm through training in 2 to 3 months, I can stitch and surf the internet while on the job when it's slow. (I'm trying to refrain from another WOO HOO!)
Meanwhile, count your blessings and keep the frog away from your stitching.
