In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

My casket carcass for my Cabinet of Curiosities arrived today!

I planned to take pictures and publish them on this blog.

I have yet to get my hands on the box.  Dearly Beloved unwrapped it, took it out, opened all the drawers, located all the secret hiding places, admired the workmanship, and wrapped it all back up to keep it safe and put it back in the box while I was looking at the hardware. He has now taken everything upstairs to my stash repository where it will be safe. Safe from what I don't know.

I have no words.


  1. I had plexiglass box made to fit over my wooden box so I can look at and admire it every day. Not a stitch done on it yet but still it makes me smile.

  2. Ann,
    I love reading your posts - you have an excellent gift for writing about your projects and I am always amazed at all the classes and projects you take or have taken - wish I could make the time! This post cracked me up when I read it yesterday and it still does. I read it out loud to my husband today and he rolled his eyes and smiled! I guess these sorts of things makes us realize that even after all the years together they can still surprise us!
    Hope to see pictures of this one of these days - maybe it is part of some Easter Egg Hunt/Surprise he is planning?!
