    That is a beauty. How old is it etc? Do you know its history? Love it.

    That is fabulous!! I wouldn't have to "find" the perfect place for it in my sewing room, I've already got one. I'd be glad to give it a home. Hee Hee!!! What a great friend to share such a unique gift. You are blessed to count her as a friend. I know you will enjoy it more because SHE gave it to you.

    All he said was he got it at an auction a few years back and that it was a store display

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Fantastic! The aged oak is gorgeous.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
