While I was walking all over downtown Tallahassee this morning, I got a phone call from my youngest son, Jeff.
Now Jeff is a young man of very few words, and usually no news from him means that everything is going well. So when my phone rang and I saw the display screen read “Jeff Hunter” along with his mobile phone number I was a bit worried.
This is not the kid that will call just to say I love you. He is the kid likely to tell you “I told you I loved you last week, if I change my mind I’ll let you know ---“
His words were: “Mom, I think your machine is here.”
I asked where it was from….I was looking for a package from Arkansas. Yep, that was it!
I told him to carefully open the box and text me some photos – I was so eager to see!
His photos came to me one by one with the comment of “Yup. Looks like a school bus!”
I. LOVE. IT!!!
Can you believe THIS came from THIS:
She’s got a new snazzy life in front of her now!
As the saying goes, “Even an old barn looks better with a new coat of paint!” Here is some more lusciousness:
The spool pin needs to be put back on top..it’s off to the side!
Close up of Decals! FUN!
Even a matching foot pedal!
What a transformation! Next I think I need to save up and have my poor beat up 301, Ugly Betty sent in --- she wants to be purple really bad. ;c)
I can hardly wait to get home and see her in person!
Today has been fun --- I walked and walked and even took pictures in front of the Florida Supreme Court building. I wandered several antique and thrift shops, but no great machine finds or quilt finds down here. That is probably a good thing, I have a hard time leaving bargains behind :c)
I’m meeting up with the guild ladies in a bout an hour to grab a bite to eat and then head over to set up for my lecture tonight ---
Zoooom, there this day goes bye bye! So fast! Hope yours was wonderful ---
