You may remember earlier on in the holidays, I mentioned my folks were staying with me. Well this is what they brought down with them.
Isn't she lovely? She's going to need a little TLC before I put her to good use, but I'm hoping she will save me alot of time when sewing. I'm intending to have one machine threaded up for FME leaving the other to concentrate on my 'making up' sewing. No more threading and re-threading and changing machine feet. So she's off to be given a thorough 'going over' by a man 'in the know', while I'm away.
|She even came with her own stylish carry bag...those were the days|
|Life was so simple back then......|
But that's not all, nestled in a mound of bubble wrap, at the bottom of a cardboard box, was this 'dear lady'.
When I saw her again I was transported back in time to Sunday tea at my Nan's house. Don't ask me why, but I used to sit, transfixed for ages, in front of the display cabinet that was this lady's home just staring at her wonderful face. I was totally fascinated with her. Something my lovely mum had not forgotten.
It was lovely to be reacquainted with her after all of these years and to be able to give some thought as to where in my house her new home will be.
|You just wouldn't mess with this lady!|
