    Very nice cabinet.
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.

    I've eyed those many time in antique shops but don't have the funds. Yours is in very nice condition! Enjoy!

    I wanted one for years .. finally found one at an antique show... it was $800.00 and that was 12 years ago. Unfortunately I had such limited funds I could not make such a splurge purchase.

    What a special friend. That is too wonderful. You are fortunate, indeed.
