Yep, I went and done did it.
I shouldn't have. I did not even need to be window shopping. It was soooo not a need.
But I really, really wanted to.
And then it happened.....the kinda thing you only read about. A vintage singer for sale....in a desk....runs well.....pretty clean....cheap: the kinda cheap you can't say no to..............so I went and looked at it. It was all true. $48.00 dollars later.........say hello to my wee Scottish lass...
No, I did not buy a machine just because I already had scissors that would go with it perfectly...no, not really, okay, maybe just a little tiny bit.
a little rustic, but not too bad considering
a December 5, 1958 birthday
you use your leg, not your foot.....how fun is that?
A little roughness on this side, nothing a little elbow grease can't fix.
This is one of the fancy ones with a touch of chrome
The drawers were full of vintage notions
Brady Bunch era notions
And a "touch" of lint in the bobbin area
I am pretty happy with my purchase. I have to do some serious cleaning in tight spaces and convert the lamp bulb to LED cuz that sucker gets hot...real hot. But it will be so nice to have a machine that's bed is even with the table top.....sooooo nice.
Now, I have a red pair of scissors...hmmmmmmmmm......I think I saw a red Viking on craigslist.................
Happy hunting and sewing.....
