Wheeler and Wilson No. 8

I bought a recliner.  I know.  Please don't think less of me.  I wanted one.  I have cancer.  I deserve one.  It is a lovely, sea-foam green, leather recliner.  It is comfort defined.

We didn't have room for it.  Not that the chair is that large.  Rather, our rooms are small and filled with sewing machines.  The museum had to go.  We moved the antiques (Howe, W&G and W&W) out to the repair shop; for now.  On a lark, I listed the Wheeler and Wilson yesterday.  Today I sold it.
Just like that.  Hooray for me.

Here you go, Linda! (See comment below)


  1. What, no picture of the recliner? Hope the person who bought it appreciates it.

    1. Wishing you the best with your health. The recliner will be lovely to kick back in.

  2. Nice chair. Looks comfortable. You deserve it. Hope treatments are going well with positive results.

  3. My grandfather ruled the universe of his town from his Barcalounger. No shames from me. I would not be able to get out of one UNLESS it had a launch feature.
    Hmm. Another project to consider....I'll get on it and get back to you.

  4. ooOOOoooo that recliner IS lovely! The first things I bought when my husband started chemo was a recliner and a new TV, we both agree they were the best investments for his comfort we ever made. HUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGs

  5. Looks comfy--enjoy!

  6. Dear Elizabeth: Bless you and bless your beautiful green recliner. Hang in there. Love, and a big long-distance hug from one of your many fans.

  7. That recliner is my new life goal!

  8. Recliners are great even if you don't have cancer. From one cancer survivor to another.

  9. A stitching chair!
    How about some handwork: cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, hand quilting or piecing?
    Yeah, a nap works too.

  10. I got mine when I had a fall and subsequent shoulder surgery. My son in law who was visiting went to get a recliner and fix the hall bath tub/shower so I could have a bath chair and a hand held shower. Bless him. I am sure you will enjoy the recliner way more than the machine while you are getting well. My mom's sewing equipment was a pink atlas and a sewing basket with a pencil, tape measure, and whatever notions for the project she was fixing to do. Alas it takes me a zillion machines new and old and a house full of stuff plus shop storage. She would be horrified and puzzled by the warehouse of things I seem to require. Ha Enjoy your recliner and feel better soon. mssewcrazy
