Funiture Fix and tree number 3

This is an antique hutch that is in my kitchen.  I remember this piece from when I was a child.  The top needed to be raised up so the doors worked better and no longer scraped on the top of the base.  My wonderful wood working brother made me a piece to do just that and made sure it matched and blends right in.  It looks like it has always been there.  I am quite happy about it.  Oh and all the glass and pretty things inside were washed and put back.  That is also a wonderful job well done.  Thank you to my MIL and SIL for their valuable help.

Meanwhile back at the lap stand - three number three is coming right along.  I keep saying that I want to get this basic part of each of the four trees ready to go and then I need to move on to the homework for the retreat coming up in October.  I better get stitching!!!!

You are so blessed to have so many handy helpers around. Your hutch is lovely. Great progress on the trees.

Your brother did a great job!
Love your progress on the Victoria piece.
You did a nice stash enhancement (previous post). Now I'm tempted for that box as well! ;-)
Have a nice weekend!

P.S.: Sending you a big hug!

I am curious to know if you sell any of your patterns when you have finished them. I saw that you did Lady Scarlet's scissor roll, and I have been looking for it everywhere. I found Just Nan too late to buy it.
Thanks for your time, you do fabulous work.

Yes, I do generally sell my charts when I am done. I just went to see if I still have this one and I DO!!! You can email me at
