I bring this up because a longtime friend of my family called me and said she was selling some things she thought I might like. I bought some things from her and visited her for two hours. I am going to share more of my visit later, but back to the items I purchased.
There was a large wood box that opened up and had shelves in it. I thought great because I love boxes. I pulled it out today and started cleaning it up. The box was solid wood except it had a veneer front panel and back panel on it. I thought about my old sewing stand and decided if I took the veneer off I could replace it with vintage quilt and fabric. I got so excited! I took an old printer tray and cut it down so I could use it as a display on one of the shelves. I put a piece of very beautiful antique needlework on the inside of the front and a piece of antique crazy quilt on the other side. I used a piece of collaged fabric on the outside that my sister made me. By this time I was doing a very happy dance. I started gathering things from my art/sewing room and have almost completed my beautiful sewing stand. I'm keeping this one!!
