After a week of shifting furniture, school holidays, Princess's birthday and dejunking, I have lost the will to live. I am knackered......

However I did cheer up when I saw this on Ebay. I'm looking for a sewing machine cabinet..... I can't afford a modern Horn one so I'm looking for a treadle cabinet I can adapt. This is not it, however. What a fantastical monstrosity of a cabinet!

That case was one for the parlor. It's really beautiful. :) Hope you find a very nice treadle cabinet to adapt. My sister adapted a singer treadle cabinet to a modern(1980's) machine.
