I Miss My 'Nest"
There's been some discussion on the PrimitiveFolkApplique2 yahoo group regarding stitching spots in your home. By the way, I love that group - I don't participate much but I love to see what they're up to. I just lurk. teehee
Until we moved into our current home two years ago I had a spot to stitch - what I referred to as my 'Nest'. My favorite chair and my little red cabinet where I could store and hide my current only-by-hand project(s). In this home my little red cabinet sits off all alone in a spot (just cuz there's room there). I sit on the end of the sectional sofa/couch. I have a tendency to pile stuff on the cushion to my right and I'm just not comfortable. The arm of the sofa on my left is a bit too high - it's too cushy - yada, yada, yada. LOL My DH is very accommodating and keeps telling me that we need to figure out a spot for me but quite frankly it just won't work in our greatroom like it has in the past. Sigh!
I want to tell you about little red cabinet - just cause I love it and have a need to share. :-) I saw that 'apothecary' style chest in a JC Penney ad one Sunday morning 15 years ago and knew I had to have it. I watched the clock and was at the store when they opened. I was so excited I could hardly stand it. Well, they didn't have any in stock so I ordered it and waited patiently for it's arrival. It appears to have eleven drawers but in reality there are only three. It's a perfect cabinet for a stitcher's nest - wouldn't you agree?
A friend stopped by one day and noticed my cabinet and said that since I wasn't really using it she'd buy it from me - not NO but heck NO!!! LOL
Do you have a spot in your home? Your own special 'Nest'. I'd love it if you'd share a picture. :-)
Thanks for visiting!
