This is my lady
And, her cabinet:
This is my new lady:
My husband got hold of her. As he dug deeper he kept telling me she had very little sewing time. He has decided he just can't paint this machine. He thinks I should find another to paint! He was really enjoying tinkering with her. I actually planned to do most of that myself but who am I to ruin a man's fun! As long as I have one back together and functioning well before I go to a retreat I will be happy.
I did sew a little this afternoon before she arrived. I am working on two tree skirts from a Thimbleberries pattern. I have to say, I am not a fan of how her patterns are written. But, I am wading through. One will be a table topper and one a tree skirt. They are different and the final decision will be based upon which one turns out worse....that will be the skirt!
I am going to see about a couple more 301s in a week or so. The lady told me one is only a donor machine. Be something good for M to practice paining on!
