Slow Stitching Sunday

I am looking forward to a bit of slow stitching today. I plan to stitch this label onto this Quilt of Valor and then it will be all ready to go to my state coordinator.

I may also do some stitching on this shirting top I got loaded.

Hubby and I got my new cabinet home yesterday. I bought this at an estate sale that Daughter #3 was working at. I always wanted a cabinet like this but never had room in my kitchen. I am thrilled to have this one and the side cabinets are a real bonus!

Somehow it ended up with three different shades of paint. Eventually I will paint it white. I got it all cleaned up yesterday and removed tons of old, flaking masking tape. I found this note on the inside and decided to leave it.

Isn’t that fun? The center section has a roll down door.

The shelves each had a very carefully cut piece of old linoleum to fit.

It looks great with my vintage enamelware.

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.

    Love, love the shirting top! The cabinet is a great find, and that note made me chuckle. Isn’t it amazing that is has been taped there since 1959! That is almost my whole life time!

    That cabinet is awesome! I can’t believe that note has been there since 1959! I can’t wait to see it after you’ve painted it.
