We Break into Normal Scheduled Programming....

To show you this!!!

 Found this sweet little thing (1931 Singer)  at the flea market today and, yep...it followed me home...
I had to bring her home, just had to...I am so going to convert this to a hand crank machine...yay!  oh yay!!!
She is a bit grungey and her case needs some repair and the motor and wiring looks kind of scary...perfect candidate for a hand crank conversion  :)

Now how am I going to ignore her long enough to finish the 3 Doctor Who blocks I have left to do...oh what is a girl to do????

Stay on task! Complete the Dr Who quilt then play with the machine. Sweet little machine.

What a fun find! Enjoy her. (I think she needs a name.)

Hubby wants me to tell you it is an easy conversion but make sure you use the bolt for the hand crank, not the bolt that mounts the motor to the machine. He learned that from the machine guy who passed away recently.

Love it! Good luck with your conversion... she'll be even more beautiful with a little TLC!

What a find! It looks so much like the machine I learned to sew on. My mom bought hers in 1934. It came with a cabinet and has loads of attachments.

She is beatiful, Kris!! No wonder you had to bring her home. Well, you do need a little fun time, I am sure he will understand :)
