    My wonderful, loving husband bought this for me in Atlanta a couple weeks ago at the Sewing and Quilting Expo. Fed Ex called yesterday and set up delivery for today (I was soooo excited all night and this morning!) Turns out it was coming on an 18-wheeler and since we have a quarter mile long concrete driveway, he could NOT come up it. I had to go down and meet him at the road and get the boxes loaded in the back of our little Kubota. There they sat, aaaaalllll day until my hubby came home. :)

    Got everything set up and ready tonight. Can't wait until the kids go down for a nap tomorrow! :)

    The machine actually isn't new, just the table. :)

    YAY Rachel, your sewing machine looks fabulous in the brand new cabinet! You're going to make great use out of the drawers and you're going to absolutely love having all that space on the left side!

    Please tell your hubby he is awesome! He got you the new sewing machine a couple months ago and now a new cabinet to put it in. He's an awesome guy! :D

    I tell him how much I love him on a pretty regular basis. :) He's always been very supportive of my interests and hobbies. I'm a lucky lady!

    Congrats! You mean you didn't already have it set up when hubby got home? I would have. The anticipation would have killed me otherwise!

    I just don't know how you could stand looking at the boxes all day long!?! I would have moved that pretty red car out of the way and backed that baby right up to the door as close as I could get it and went to it! Enjoy, it's a beautiful cabinet.

    It was tempting to try it on my own but the big box weighed roughly 170 lbs. I can toss a 50 lb bag of horse feed around easy enough, but a nearly 200 lb box is another story. :) I figured waiting and having it come in in one piece was a better idea than trying it on my own and ending up with a shattered cabinet. :)

    I loved that expo! So much to look at! I bought several ruler/templates from Deb Tucker. I have been enjoying those a bunch.

    My grandmother is doing okay, at best. Her memory is definitely going. She's not the same gramma anymore for sure. It broke my heart because she didn't recognize me when I first came in the house. Used to be she'd light up and smile so big when she saw me. I'd get a big warm hug and you knew how happy she really was to see you. She used to want to know what all was going on and how you'd been. This time she didn't ask any questions or really join in the conversations at all. It was sad. I feel for my mom and aunts in the coming years as they will have to deal with the issues of moving her into some kind of assisted living. I'm not sure how long it will be until she will not be able to live on her own like she is now.

    What a great delivery. I would have been bonkers having to look at the boxes all day and not being able to play. Have fun with your new toy.
