    My husband worked on this for weeks. He made it from cherry, my favorite wood.
    The handles are actually straight, but the angle of the picture makes them look crooked. He does beautiful work. The machine does go down into the frame and he made a top to cover it since this is in our guest room.
    As payment for this, I'm making him a big mariner's compass quilt. He's wanted one for years and I was afraid to attempt the paper piecing. I found that it's not that difficult, just very time consuming.
