30 Years of Wanting (lusting)
I have been wanting a pattern cabinet for 30 years. Last Friday, I went to Hancock Fabrics to order a dress form. Low and behold, they were selling their cabinets because of remodeling. Of course, I'm always a day late and a dollar short. The Vogue cabinets were already taken and those were really nice. I ended up with a Simplicity that has seen better days. It still is in great working order though. It will certainly do the trick. I really, really wanted a Vogue cabinet. The Simplicity cabinet makes me feel, well, simple. Anyway, Jeff and Nathen were impressed with how sturdy and well made the cabinet was and the cost. I paid $35.00 for it. I called Jeff from the fabric store. Before I even went into my spiel, he's like "ok, what's up. I can tell by the sound of your voice that you are wanting something". Am I really that transparent??? Anyway, he succombed since he knew I've been wanting one forever. This sucker is extremely heavy. We had to purchase a hand truck/dolly to move it out of the store. We also had to call Nathen to help Jeff get it on and off the truck.
As you can see, it still needs to be cleaned up. I thought it was going into the garage but Jeff said the two of us could never get it into the house ourselves. So with Nathen there, they put it right into the room. Jeff asked where I wanted it to go. How can I think in a split second for the perfect spot? So he suggested the corner. Of course as soon as Nathen left, I got to thinking......maybe.......
