My Sewing Cabinet in Progress


Dearest Sultana,

We celebrated my husband’s birthday last week. In his family, whenever there is a birthday, red eggs will be prepared. These are simply hen eggs that have their shells dyed. My mother in law tells me that when we eat these eggs we wish the birthday person health, happiness and a long life, it also means that we love them. Unfortunately I forgot to do this in the morning! If I made them for the afternoon, everybody would be too full from the eggs to enjoy their dinner, so in the end I got some small chocolate eggs in foil. Believe it or not they were even more popular than the regular hen eggs.

I have been working on my Sewing Cabinet for a little bit. It isn’t quite done yet but here are a few pictures of what I’ve done:

My husband made this desk from stainless steel to go into the cabinet. I spray painted it.

And I was very excited about getting a peg board. Here it is:

As I said, it’s not finished yet, it is also very messy still. But I think we are making good progress. Actually I think at the moment, what I lack the most is inspiration to sew, once I get a good idea, I’m sure I will finish the cabinet pronto.
