My New Home........ in my old home

Someone asked for pictures of my treadle machines. Well the one at the right is my New Home machine. I have it in my sewing room, someday I would really like to use it to make a small quilt top. I just don't know enough about treadles to try it yet. This machine was purchased by my sweet husband at an antique shop. It came with a bunch of parts that I am completely clueless about, it also came with the needle case in the picture. What is really cool is that there are still needles in that needle case! I am working on a shadow box/picture type thingie (highly technical term that) to display some of these cool finds. I also have vintage thread spools and buttons on cards.

Your "new home" is lovely. A friend of mine has one also. Hers does not fold up but has a cover that sits over the top.
Thanks for your comments re the tupperware party. The cake was really good but I don't know if it was worth the $40 I spent on tupperware!
I know, I know, I can hear you yelling from here! LOL
