NEW BABY!



Okay, new sewing room baby! I stopped at the local thrift shop yesterday and look what I found! It just spoke to me, it said "Mare, we belong together". I tried to resist, well I tried, but not very hard.
My sweet husband went and picked her up for me today since she didn't exactly fit in my little car. I was taking pictures of her in the living room thinking that I would just crop out the laundry basket in the chair behind her, and my 13 year old made me stop, then she whipped the quilt off the chair and gave me a nice backdrop. Is she a photographer or what?
So,here is my new baby. Isn't she pretty? And she works, and she is in good shape. Yes, she is mine mine mine! I have been thinking I should have a second machine in case my trusty Viking breaks down. And, sorry to say, the two treadle machines, and the old one of my grandmother in law, and my serger, and my daughters machines just do not count. ;-) I can't wait to try her out on some of my own fabric. woooooo hoooooooo

Absolutely beautiful! I don't blame you a bit for bringing her home! Have you sewed anything on her yet? I love to do my piecing on old straight stitch singers - I like the simple straight seam better than the one my computerized machine makes!
