A cabinet...

So I've been doing some late spring cleaning around the house and came across my great-grandmother's sewing machine cabinet. I pulled it out, dusted it off and organized some of my knitting needles and notions to have them all in one spot and the cabinet is perfect for them. It really needs to be re-finished and I will get to that one day but for now it's very "rustic".

While organizing things, I came across what was originally going to be a cotton legwarmer but I wasn't happy with it so it became a Mason Jar cozy. The purple bowl started out as a hat but, ta-ta...flip it over and it became a nice little bowl.

This cabinet really does have a sewing machine in it. I learned how to sew on this machine when I was 15 years old, wow that was long time ago, lol!  It's very old and the plug is a little scary so I don't think I'll be turning it on anytime soon. 

See ya 'round the bend!
