I was just about to present to the Chambersburg Quilt Guild when the message came in, but oh boy, did I jump on it!
Mary was down in Burlington at a flea market, saw this and thought of me!
ENABLERS!! All of you!!
But I’m not complaining --- I have an affinity for blue machines. They remind me of the 1968 Firebird that my mom had while we were growing up. Yeah. She sold that car just short of my 15th birthday and bought a MINIVAN. I was never so humiliated..I wanted that car!
I have so many great memories of this car growing up! I can still feel the sear of the blue vinyl seats against my thighs on the way home from Santa Cruz in the summer time! And that CHROME!
I can’t have this.
But I can have THIS:
MORSE!! Blue & Chromey!
And Mary, that wheeler-dealer, got it for me for $25!
This is a straight stitch only Japanese import version of a Class 15 Singer. The decals are in such EXCELLENT SHAPE! I honestly don’t think this one was sewn on much..even the badge on the pillar is shiny gold. This machine dates from the 1950s.
Check it out! Ohhhh…..SHINY!
I’m off to New Hampshire tomorrow--- I don’t have time to fix a machine today anyway.
One of the things on the to-do list is to get going on those two baby quilts I need for my soon-to-be-born nephews. I’ll plan on having enough cut out to start sewing them at Quilt Cam time tonight, at 9PM Eastern Time. Will you be joining me? What will you bring to sew on?
See you then!
