Done

Hi all.  Just a quick post to show Hannah completed.  Since my tablet slipped out of the unzipped makeshift case, hit the hardwood floor and slid a few feet, making a pouch for it now using Hannah is moot.  And saying I found a cabinet maker may be also. 
 He is a nice guy, has been at this for years and does very nice work.  But he never heard of a rat-tail hinge, extended sides, or mixing door sizes in one unit.  I showed him this photo.  I don't know if the sides are called hutch, apron, extended, pain in the ass, whatever, he's never done them.  I then come home to hear a message from my sister that she is going to see the doctor because she is out of breath and fluid is once again building in her lungs.  My brother's message was that his doctor is squeezing him into the schedule tomorrow for a necessary scope and I need to take him.  Does the kitchen matter?

So here's flat Hannah.. 

and sack Hannah.
Who knows what her final resting pose will be.  She heard from the others that there is no such thing as FINAL in this house, nor rest.  You probably think it's weird to hang the sampler sideways but it's different and my other sack needs someone to hang with.  I think with some feathers and a few gourds, they would make a great primitive display from a peg, or rusty baling hook.  I've decided to move all the samplers to one wall in the new room whenever the chair rail is up and the painting is done.  Ed hasn't returned my calls.
 
 
The sun is out and it's finally warming here.
Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!

Oh, my! Things happen in threes, so I think you're past the worst of it. Sorry for all the bad news. The sampler is lovely.

I like the name flat Hannah, but I really love the look of Hannah haning sideways you should do it!! Well what kind of cabinet maker can't wing it? The guy that built my cabinet in the bathroom did it from a picture of one half and a drawing of the other half with some vauge you know what I mean. Yes yours are a little more detailed, but really!

Frances said...

I'm sorry you're having family health issues and hope everything turns out well very soon!
Your stitching is lovely, as always. That cabinet is beautiful and I'm sure someone will be able to do it! Good luck on everything!

I want to echo what Vickie said Praying things will get better for all of you. I also think that cabinet maker is fully capable of making the cabinets you want, he just doesn't want to do it. Frustrating!I like flat Hannah too.

The cabinet is just wonderful and I hope your guy can figure out how to make you one.... Love Hannah... I think she looks great hanging sideways and in that grouping! Very clever!

Carol said...

I really love Hannah displayed with the feathers, Marly. I'm so sorry to hear that your brother and sister are both having more health issues. You must hate to answer your phone these days... thinking of all of you!

Melody said...

I'm sorry to read about your siblings health issues...!

The sampler turned out great. What about your tablet? Did it survive the fall?

I love the picture of your cupboard idea.

Best wishes to you and your siblings!

I am so sorry to hear about your family problems. I do wish them all well. I love that cabinet. If I could afford it, I would fly David T. Smith out here to do a kitchen for me. Have you seen his work? I love the way you display your samplers. On the side looks good to me.

Margaret said...

I love that display -- it's wonderful! So sorry about your sister and brother and all the health issues. It really puts things in perspective though, doesn't it?

No, the kitchen doesn't matter when someone you love is not well. Will keep praying for you and your family and for rest for the weary.
I like your Hannah and she will be beautiful anyway you decide to use her.
Blessings,

I love Hannah, hanging sideways! Good luck with all the issues you have going on. It's always something....

Judy said...

Flat Hannah is lovely. I know your pain..trying to get contractors. Can they really be that busy that they never return a call or need more business.

Love the cupboard..hope you can find someone to make it for you.

Prayers for your sister and brother.

Hope things improve for you and yours. If you decide to buy a case, check out the neoprene cases made by Built NY; I've had mine for a few years. They are carried in several places online, and worth shopping around because of the price differences. I especially like the really bright floral ones because they're easier to see when I forget where I set it down...

Lanie said...

Love the kitchen cabinet, Marly! Hope that works out for you ... it would be fabulous!
Miss Hannah is delightful and I'm sure you will find the perfect finish for her as you always do!
Prayers and good thoughts for both your brother and sister's good health and peace for you.
Take care...

Shirlee said...

So very sorry to hear about your brother & sister. They are in my prayers. You too!

Jeanne said...

That's a beautiful cabinet idea, I sure hope you can find the right kind of help with your kitchen. Sending prayers your way for your family.

Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher said...

That cabinet is gorgeous and I hope you can get it all figured out just right.
I am praying for you and your family. When it rains, it pours, but God always, always sends a rainbow!

Simply Victoria said...

You are right. In light of all that is going on with your family the cabinets don't matter as much. Will be praying for healing and for a capable cabinet maker.

Chris said...

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts. Breathe!
Hannah is so sweet.
