Mr. Postman

Wow, what a day I had! The postman delivered me a box from DS#2 and DIL who live in Williamsburg, VA. I opened the box and there were two get well cards -- one even sang to me! Along with the cards were this beautiful collection of fabric -- by Windham -- The Williamsburg Christmas Collection -- 27 beautiful fat quarters!!!! Now talk about a great gift for a quilter!!! This sure did lift my spirits! I was sew excited! The fabrics came from Love 2 Quilt a great little shop in Williamsburg that I got to patronize while visiting Williamsburg in December.

I went out to my studio (separate from my house) to "piddle around". I heard a vehicle drive up (I live in the country so if you hear a car, they are coming to visit.) and looked out the window. There was the FedEx truck. Now, I was thinking "what has my hubby ordered now? Probably fishing stuff." Well, the guy gets out of the truck and it was a box FOR ME!!!! I hadn't ordered anything, so I was baffled. Lo and behold, it was another box from DS#2 and DIL!!! A Sew-EZ Table that I had been wanting. This was my birthday and Mother's Day gift! They had told me my gift would be a bit late, but when I got the fabrics I thought that was my gift!

This is a picture from the website. I'll have to post a pic of the "real thing with my machine" later as I have to get my hubby to put the table together. I can't because of my recent surgery, I can't lift anything over 5 lbs!

Awww... that's such a thoughtful and wonderful present from your son and daughter-in-law!!! I think it's great that the fabric present got you off the scent for the table!! The fabric is beautiful too!! You guys have access to way more beautiful fabric in the States than we do here.

Thanks everyone! My son is a GREAT SON and I love him very much!

yes, Molly, I've heard that comment before "I'm spoiled"! Well of course I am!

My DH got the table put together and I've done a little sewing on it -- not much though. Sew far, I love it! It is really cool -- just the right height to help keep those shoulders from hurting!

Just found your blog again and read about the sewing table. How do you like it after a couple of months? I am looking for a new table for my machine and don't want to spend a mint!!!!!

Hey Not Lucy, I LOVE my table! It is absolutely great. The machine fits just right with the insert. I am enjoying it a lot!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you come again.
