    P.S. Do you make chairs??? JK!!! LOL!

    Great gifts would be anything from quilting time to a great lighting system! Also, hubs made me a Big Board for ironing.

    along with the thread wall cabinet, hubby made me a plexiglas extension table. Some machines come with them but mine didn't and it is so helpful.

    5 little legs and a sheet of plexiglas sure makes for easier feeding the machine.

    She is one very, very lucky woman!!! ;) Unconditional love is such a rare thing! After a terrible marriage which ended in divorce I now have that kind of love, and I always thank God for my sweetheart! I'm sure your dear wife does the same for you. ;) ;) You must be such a wonderful blessing in her life.

    Try baking her a cake and then after a white iceing just take a toothpick and draw on a 1st prize ribbon. Fill in the blue ribbon. This will not be expected.
