WOW! That is absolutely fabulous!!! I had the chance to own one a few years ago but at the time I didn't know what I would use it for so passed it up... now I'm wishing I had taken it for all my Crazy Quilting supplies. Can you hear me crying. Lucky you!

Simeachen said...

Also ich fand ihn davor schon schön:-) ist ja ein einzigartiges Ding... aber danach... sprengt er alles, was ich je gesehen hab... Musst ich grad pinnen:-)

Naomi Shiek said...

That is beyond gorgeous, what a star! I have to ask, it's unclear from the pic - the frame with angle at the top was something you built around the drawers, or was it there already but had to be rebuilt?
