It's the tambour for a roll top desk- The Hub occasionally builds furniture. He could make one of these from scratch, but they're available commercially in the woods that he needs (this is oak), so he doesn't have to.
And then, remember these?
The winners (of one book apiece) are: Susan and Holey Fiber!!!!
Susan's name was drawn first, so she gets first choice of titles. Susan and Holey Fiber, email me (email@example.com) with your addresses and I'll get the booklets mailed this week. Be sure to let me know how you want the book signed (to you, to someone else, just my signature, no sig at all).
Edited to Add: Susan chose the Scarves and Mittens booklet, so Holey Fiber gets the Flower Garden booklet. Email me your addresses and they'll go in the mail.
Thanks to everyone who entered over the last few months, and thanks to Taunton for providing the prizes!
