this blog post!
And today... here she is all dressed up for a party thanks to my handy honey!
I made the prairie pointed cozy/rug and blogged about it last week here...
Here she is fully dressed...
This was a Christmas present from my honey and the great thing is...
- we did it together!
- it cost less than $100 total!!
- she sews smoother than ever now :)
My honey planned it but asked for my input... we looked at the old original base for necessities and looked at some cabinets online but nothing struck my fancy... or his... so off to Lowes we went with a meager budget of $30 for OAK!
|We added Ribbon to be a handle to the drawer on the side...|
|Fits my big ginghers and all Fiona's tools!|
|Love her two-toned look on the cabinet door closed :)|
But mostly I was obsessed with her name being on the case somewhere... hopefully the base not the top so I could see it anytime I was using her or not! lol
So after ordering her name from an Etsy shop I waited and waited... anxiously wanting to see HER name in lights that would shine on this case my honey had so lovingly made and adored...
Now... do you want a rant from me telling the good and bad of online shopping or would you rather me leave this post as is??? I shop online A LOT because I love cool one of a kind things... so I can share that with you in a future post... but for now... just make sure you read the fine print before agreeing and paying. That fine print is all what is important to the seller. Let's you know more about them...
As for me... back to marking my honey's quilt... right now... working on swirly feathers in the sashings :) Have a great Friday and a Happy Weekend before Christmas!
Sorry I don't rant well btw! hehe... but if you want more rant I have it... and can share it if you are interested so comment and let me know what you think of Fiona.. think of online purchases.... do they meet, exceed or fall short of your desired outcome???
Merry Christmas Season!
