I finished Abby's Valentine's Day gift tonight. (I told you there were a lot of old projects on my list!) It's a padded pouch for her camera (or anything else that's little). I love the black and red retro look dog print.

There was a fleeting suggestion to leave it on the back of the truck and Jim would take them around town to put on a traveling variety show.
Luckily, the mood changed and the piano made its way inside, so Graham could entertain us all.
The piano is a Wurlitzer, (later known for their fine juke boxes) and a professional tuner estimated it was made sometime in the late 30's. What makes this even more interesting is the way the keyboard cover closes and creates a nice tabletop or sideboard.
So far I haven't been able to find any information about it on the web, but I'll keep looking.
Who knows- this may turn out to be a priceless antique, but for now the smiles on Melissa and Graham's faces when they play it is worth it's weight in gold. :)
