Gift from Sissypoo

A month or so ago, my Sissypoo found this really cool picture at a garage sale, and knowing I love sewing machines, picked it up for me. She was sew (hee hee) excited when she gave it to me. It has taken me a little bit for figure out where I would hang it, and today, I found a spot. For any of you that know me, my walls are pretty full, but that is the way I like it. I love to display my treasures! (oooo, that didn't sound right....oh well...) Anyway, on the way to our basement, (I sure wish I could think of a neater name than that for such a pleasurable space...) I have a few sewing/quilting notions, brass butterflies, and a neat framed tapestry piece that welcomes anyone who visits us, but particularly, my friends, members of our 'Loose Tensions' quilt group that meets once a month (except for this summer while we are on hiatus.) Am I rambling? On the left wall, I hung a mirror and a key, (and my smoke detector...oh, so pretty...hee hee) and the right wall is a picture with big yarn bobbins and candlesticks. On the ledge sits a couple bears, some silk (dusty) plants and some big cones of thread, and more dust. Sew, I draped a doily (have I ever told you I LOVE LOVE LOVE doilies?) over the top and secured it to the back with a couple tacks so it wouldn't take off on me, and hung it under my 'Welcome Friends' tapestry. I should have raised the tapestry up a bit but since I am short, and I was working on the stairs steps, this will have to do!Sissypoo (Nancy) will be pleased I now have it displayed.
Thank you, and I love you Nancy Jo!
