There are not too many material things on earth I really feel covetous about: I'm not into cars, I like clothes well enough but don't spend a lot of time shopping, I am a good cook so I can make delicious food with relative ease - but holy cow I want a WorkBox 3.0 more than I have wanted just about any objective thing on Earth. Someday I aspire to tuck all my tools, threads, beads, pearls, glue, findings, ribbon, lace, yarn, feathers, fabrics, sewing machine and reference books into this Cabinet of Wonders and create in a state of peace and tranquility, and then close those remarkable swinging doors, roll it into a corner, and host Thanksgiving dinner with room to spare. Sigh.
