Remember last week I went antiquing and was disappointed to find nothing exciting?
Well I received an email from a friend in my small quilting group.
She said " since you take in stray cats I thought maybe you would like to give this old sewing machine a home."
|There may be a missing handle, but that's a quick fix thanks to Ebay|
Why? It was a 1924 bent wood Singer for only $25. Really! $25! I've told you how cheap I am and this machine was right up my alley.
There wasn't any so I of course bought it and I took it home.
I found a video online that show you how to cleaned it up and played with it.
I runs just lovely and if I need a spare machine (or 5), it's here to use.
So if any of you ever come across a cheap old crank handle machine, drop me an email and I'll be right there!
Thank you Nancy for the hot tip! You know me well!
I mentioned before that I was using a wool batting. This is a first for me. It is puffier that your everyday batting. At first I had I hard time getting it under my Juki, but I've overcome that obstacle now I just need to overcome those helpful animals!
Those tomatoes were sure good and I do have more coming soon. I seem to have quite a few roma tomatoes. The others, not so much. And there are several more chilies.
Zucchinis? Still nada.
I will try to get more quilting done today, while the furry ones sleep. This phase has to pass, it just has to!
Take care, Brandie
